'Whatever The Weather'

It's been a long time since my last post and it's a bank holiday weekend again! How did that come around so quickly again?!
So Pulse is done and dusted. It feels a bit after the event to post photos now (you can see some on my Facebook page) but it went well and I met lots of new people, chatted to existing stockists (finally putting faces to some names), took orders and caught up with friends - both of the trade show world, blog world (finally met Virginia from Roddy & Ginger) and old friends from University days. All in all a throughly tiring but worthwhile 3 days again.
I've been up to my eyes in orders since but I have some plans for over summer to keep me busy once the orders have quietened down a little. I would love to have an open studio, there's a couple of collaborations in the pipeline, new products and a few website tweaks along with plans for trade fairs next year (perhaps farther afield this time?!...)
In the meantime I thought I'd post one of my new prints - 'Whatever The Weather.' I've been meaning to do something weather-based for a while and the odd weather over the last few months spurred me on. So this print is to celebrate our preoccupation with the great British weather and all it's opposites and phrases. I'm really pleased with how it turned out. It finally came together last bank holiday Monday so obviously I too am inspired by and preoccupied with the weather!
Printed in an edition of 100 - each signed and numbered - it's now available on my shop or I'm also giving away one of them if you head over to my Facebook page this weekend and like and share the post.
Happy bank holiday - hope it's glorious sunshine where you are!
