Oh hooray spring has finally fully sprung, and the flowers are coming, the flowers are coming! I am VERY excited. I found the most inspired window box plantings at our little local flower centre– all poppies, all the time. Majestic, icelandic, exquisite poppies. It occurs to me that I have yet to make a poppy pattern. Well seeing as Surtex (booth 1035!) is in SEVEN days, and a girl has to pack and what not, I’m not expecting to have my poppy print ready in time for this show– but next year, it’s going to be full on fabulous poppy profusion all the way. Until then, I have my fairytale anais pattern, in poppy colours, to tide me over. I would like to see miss anais in a wallpaper, or a silk gown- or why not both at the same time… my kind of camouflage.
