t w o


This month has been the start of planning the new store for The Linen Garden, 
although it will not be launched until the end of January '16 there is so much to do.  
New departments too, homewares, wedding, paper and print, inspirational gatherings...
I am incredibly enthused and inspired at the moment...a good place to be. 
So for a short while I squirrelled myself away in the caravan...
a little silence...a little head space...
as well as time out to walk and explore and just 'be'....

This time I stayed near Richmond.....
I have totally fallen in love with Swaledale and Reeth and its surrounding area.  
The sense of community, the beautiful landscape, 
greenery against the contrasting moor, the friendlyness.
The wonderful mining heritage has links to my home county 
too which obviously enriches my connection with the area...







September has also been the month of making and hand stitiching....lots of new products arriving over the next few weeks ....these pretty sewing cases are now available in The Linen Garden and arrive filled with pins and needles in its own decorated keepsake box.











...the art of packaging orders to send to new homes is always my favourite daily delight...
it takes me back to being a child and pretending to own a shop...
and now I can play for real as I have my very own

...and... 
it is the time of year to launch this seasons collection of my 
'Bloomsbury Meandering Bags'
...a task of love...
...each one different and carefully curated in colour and pattern and detail...
and each one given a name as I never make the same design twice...
Available in The Linen Garden early-ish in October...
a preview will be available to view here over the next two weeks. xxx

 ...and my love of this time of the year is the changing of light
...dark mornings...low sun...lamplight...
the ever changing season of Autumn...
