It’s been a while. I’ve been ultra busy at school – three weeks to go and it’s all piling up. My house is a mess, there is fabric all over the place, my blog lies neglected and out of date and my brain is full to bursting! It’s not for the worst though: My burgeoning foray into the world of textiles is rolling along and exciting things have happened…
This very humble blog has received visits from a few of my personal heroes including Lucy Feagins of the very best design blog The Design Files and Emma of environmental and textile superstars Harvest Textiles… Thanks to you ladies for the ever so nice things you’ve written to me and helped me out with.
I also totally crashed my textile crush, Ink & Spindle’s second birthday party this weekend and hung out in their most inspiring studio. Thanks to Lara and Teegs for humouring an excitable student!
I’ve also had a swell opportunity to have my folio (i have a folio?!) looked at by the Shine Group. It was a little intimidating to be showing my work for the first time to a slick design company but Joel gave me some really useful advice and direction.
The textile industry is proving to be a veritable magic garden of nice people. To all involved and to myself I say “keep up the good work!”
More posts to come to show you what I’ve been busy with all this time I haven’t been blogging. Til then, here’s a hint…
PS …sorry for rambling… I’m a bit excited….
