Hello! I'm so busy I don't have time to write very often but just wanted to let you know that the book is going well, though I have fallen behind after falling over and fracturing my elbow! (I wasn't drunk- honest. It was the slippery boots I love too much to throw away).
It was so frustrating knowing how much I had to do but couldn't do anything, but thankfully it's mending quickly and I'm almost back on track. I'm very pleased to say that Amy Butler http://www.amybutlerdesign.com/ is donating lots of lovely fabrics for the book, as well as Michael Miller http://www.michaelmillerfabrics.com and a lovely designer called Alice Apple who creates beautiful retro, scandinavian style fabrics http://www.aliceapple.co.uk/. Their designs will be used for products in the book and also page backgrounds which I think will work brilliantly.
I also have fellow Art School friend Gemma Correll http://www.gemmacorrell.com/ on board for the step by step illustrations which is very exciting, her work has a childlike quality that I love and will add a humorous and playful element to the pages. We also have another surprise character to feature throughout the book which I'm very excited about, but you'll have to buy the book to find out who!
Ok better get back to work! Before I go here are some recent articles about me:
