Pulse round up

A little round up of some of my favourites I saw at Pulse this year

The highlight of my day was most definitely finally meeting the very lovely Abigail, after reading each others blogs for many years and emailing, and purchasing it was a delight, she was as smily and lovely in person and it was wonderful to see their products in the flesh.  I have been coveting for a long time this set of tea towels. 



 There are a lot of designers producing tea towels, trays, mugs etc, myself included, but these by Kate Clarke stood out for me, very fresh.




 I adored the range of cushions scarves and hats by Seven gauge studios. They will definitely be making an appearance in the gallery this Autumn





More delightful cushions from My friend yarn





Loved these knobs by Chocolate creative



Oh what I would do for one of these satchels in yellow by Barbara Wiggins


 I loved so much of Natasha Lawless's work


I am very excited to work with wall envy on producing a range of these wall pieces together exclusively for the gallery, with pages from Welsh books and welsh poems.  



Thats just my first round up, I will add more at a later date.  A lot of the deigners I saw hadn't updated their websites with their brand new work for the show yet so I will reveal some of that in the coming weeks.

Sorry for my negative post yesterday, I have got myself a bit worked up about the subject recently but I had my rant and thats over.

Finally a massive thank you to all the fabulous comments regarding my new designs, it was perfect market research for me, I had a feeling the more colourful ones would come out on top so I might have to go down the digitally printed route rather than screen printing as the costs will rocket with so many colours. Watch this space with regards to new products.  I'm working on it.

Bye for now, and thanks for reading xx

My friend yarn pillows really catch my attention...especially the lighthouse one:)
Many temptations, Janet...it is a good thing for my pocketbook that I live "across the pond"
Hope you have many good sales <3
