Floor Cushions

Large floor cushions 70cm x 70cm - (standard size pads can be found at John Lewis and online!). I will be adding these to my website soon hopefully. Floor cushions are great espeically if you have guests around or next to a low coffee table and on a rug. We have a couple in our sitting room and our daughters love lying on them and need I say? So does the dog!

Oak cushions & Daisy my dog

My little Daisy dog loves it when I put new cushions out on our sofa. These are my Oak cushions in hot pink and canary yellow on an indigo background. I had an interesting time putting my new designs together. After talking to a friend of mine who was looking to buy some cushions for her new home and hearing her thoughts, I decided to add a few brighter and bolder designs to the new cushion covers and this one, is one of my favourites - and I'm someone who prefers muted colours! It definitely adds colour to the white walls in our north facing sitting room and our vintage brown sofa.

The first day of 2014

Hello everyone and hope you're having a good start to 2014. I can't say I've done very much today and the highlight of my day has been the lie-in that I had as a result of us being invited to two new year's eve parties yesterday which completely knackered the kids out! 

I sincerely hope the new year is a good one for everyone. I promise to try and blog more than once a year! Look forward to interacting with those who read my blog and to sharing some of my new work on here soon! - kiran

New Print!

This is my latest print. I don't think the colours will suit everyone's taste and on some days, I'm sure even I will find the combination totally revolting but today, I like it. :P

Juju flower


Hello to everyone who reads my blog which has been severely neglected recently. I read somewhere recently that blogs might be dying out. I wonder if this is true. What with Facebook and being able to upload photos instantly and Twitter and their one liners, perhaps blogs are just too tiresome? Whatever it is, I shall try my best to keep blogging. It's sometimes good to read my old postings and to see how things have changed, better or worse!

The last couple of weeks have been tough weeks. Personally and creatively. I'm going through a phase at the moment. Things are hanging and I need everything to be just right. I can normally get on with things even if other things aren't 100%  perfect but it's when things are hanging or I'm having to wait to hear back from others that I find myself drifting and not really doing anything productive.

So who wants an update on my daughter Jill? Arghhh!! There! She's still a pain in the arse. She's still bossy. She's still naughty. She complained the other day that she was really upset because there is a flower named after her best friend but not a flower named Jill. I mean, to a thirty something year old like me, that's probably the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard but to her, tears streaming down her cheeks, it was actually a problem. So, we decided to invent a flower. I said to her, that I'll do a flower print, and call it the Juju flower. I love her but boy is she hard work. I don't know if I should be controlling her and disciplining her but do I love her feisty self. I love her determination. I don't like how rude she is but she's got something about her that makes me think she'll go far, if she wants to. Let's just say, she's the complete opposite of me!

So, till next time! I'm off to make up this Juju flower and also to carve some new leaves! New notebooks and cards will be available soon!
