Hello again


Forgive me blog readers for it has been 27 days since I last updated my blog. In some calendars that equates to one whole month....Well all I can say is it has been a busy time.

I've said farewell to a few commitments these last two weeks and I'm starting to feel the load lightening...so who knows I may just make a visit to blogworld more frequently in months to come.

Anyway whilst I've been offloading and taking delivery of a new kitchen (so exciting!) the lovely Carolyn at indie art and design has been writing up a feature interview we did....you can see it on her site/blog here along with some lovely pics that she retrieved from my Etsy store.

Speaking of that, sales have been doing great, and I've been busy adding some colourful new pieces.....so it's time to get my head down and tail up and start sewing again.

There's a little taste of what's new posted here in a pic....

Green and clean


I found this great Etsy store while checking out the Treasury. Based in NYC this Italian born artist, Patrizia Iacino (who has a degree in Architecture - yes another of the same ilk!) uses recycled material such as the rubber bands from bundles of vegetables and "upcycles" them to create interesting pieces of precious jewellery - how cool is that! Check out this ring created from broccoli rubber bands and visit her etsy shop and website to see some more.
