Discovering more about Douglas Fir

I’ve been intrigued recently by the perfect repetition of the little 3-pointed skinny crown-like seeds on these fir cones. It would make a great mini repeat pattern to print on cloth.

Over coffee with a friend, we started to discuss elbows. Her much-loved cashmere sweater was threadbare at said elbows and she asked if I would have any Harris tweed to patch it. This started a conversation about my Roobedo cashmere armies from pre-loved cashmere sweaters that have Harris tweed elbows – and we realised that […]

February full-up!

The partridges were busy this morning in the snow and I feel like this inside my head these days a bit! Don’t know whether I’m coming or going as life slides into full gear once again. Dreams, projects, new work, teaching in the mix with life in general. But hoping to use more non-virgin cloth […]

Late summer – loving this warm spell!

The days are shortening, and I’ve noticed longer shadows casting earlier each day. Becky (my whippet) and I have been seeking shade and coolness in Faskally Forest, a couple of miles North of Pitlochry, as temperatures climb into the mid twenties daily.
