inspiring colours

Have you been enjoying the lovely weather? I was stuck inside at work yesterday, but I'm going to make the most of tomorrow and get my boring jobs done first thing and then outside to enjoy the sunshine.

A few photos from my work room; I bought some beautiful silks recently, inspired by the colours of the Hellebore flowers on my pin board. I have already made some little purses out of it with broderie anglaise detail.

I have filled this old glass sweet jar with lace and trims, it's perfect as I can see what pieces I have rather than them being hidden away.


  1. Lovely inspirational photographs and your trimmings look so pretty in the glass jar,
    Hope you have a lovely Sunday!
