I have to say, I never thought I’d use a pun to kick off my first ever blog, but there it is. Much of my inspiration for designs comes from what I snap as I go about, whether it’s East London graffiti or vintage typography, modern architecture or nature itself. Nothing escapes my click – roller-coasters, fishing tackle, street signs, musical instruments, train stations, ceilings…

I’ll be posting on here about all things print and pattern: sewing projects made on my trusty Viking, fabrics I spot, screen printing designs, photos for inspiration and my knitting exploits.

Here are a few recent shots I took in London (I’m obsessed with those pots in the Albion, still trying to invent a reason to buy one, including learning to conquer a lifetime dislike of coffee):
