Well, it's both. This 100% organic cotton tea towel moonlights as a really fun craft project. With just a needle, thread, stuffing & scissors, the tea towel can be transformed into a really quite friendly stuffed Lion. This new product from Mibo has just won the prestigious 'Best New Home Product' at London's Top Drawer trade show and will be appearing on the Mibo website in a couple of weeks time.

A friend of a friend asked me to lend a hand styling her wedding: She had quite a simple request: 300 pink tissue paper pompoms to be suspended from the ceiling of the marquee. Now, I don't know if any of you have ever made one of these pompoms but they do take a bit of a careful hand - too much haste/impatience results in a pile of torn paper and a hissy fit. Fortunately I had a fair few visitors popping in during the weeks before the wedding and anyone who stepped over the threshold was handed a pile of pink tissue paper and was given a quick lesson. The house took on quite a different hue during those weeks, with the pink bundles of fluff lining every room....
even the cat got involved, though am not sure making a little bed out of them really helped the cause.
eventually after carefully stringing the pompoms into a van and driving to Essex...
we finally got them up in situ with the assistance of a very nice marquee guy with a very tall ladder. Job done! Bride and groom were delighted and the guests all helped themselves to the pompoms after the wedding was over - little fluffy mementos of the happy day.

Over Christmas I started a run of limited edition screen prints for kid's rooms - and finally managed to squeeze in a few evenings last week to print some more. Here we have the same mouse print, but in green and a brand new print of a cat reciting her way through some numbers.
The prints have a rustic almost, tactile quality to them and the colours give them a gently 50s vibe.
