Harriet Seed.

The studio is the spare bedroom of our house in Brighton, England. It’s about 10 minutes walk from the beach which is a brilliant place to clear your head and let ideas come to you. We live next door to a primary school, so when the kids are in the yard for playtime, we know it’s time for a coffee break. “My side of the studio is usually quite chaotic. I’m a bit of a magpie and accumulate things to go in my collections so there are all sorts of bits and pieces, like Coronation mugs, dotted around.

“We have a beautiful 1920s plan chest to keep prints and artwork tidy.” Harriet Seed is an illustrator who lives and works in Brighton, England. FROM YOUR DESKS: How do you work? HARRIET SEED: I usually start the day by going for breakfast with Matt at our favorite cafe where we write our to-do lists or think up new projects for the day. Woodbine. The Patchery Menagerie.

About Me

I’m Jess Abbott, the Sewing Rabbit. Growing up my nickname was Jessica Rabbit. Judy's Journal. Knitting Iris. Yes, indeed, things are really and truly o.k.i know, i know. i fell off the blogging planet around here a few months ago...to the point where concerned emails and comments are starting to roll in. please accept my apology for my absence here, but life has just been busy, busy, busy,and, in the meantime, my blogging mojo just faded away. life has been filled with all the usuals: homeschooling,cooking & baking,caring for the animals,visiting with family (both here and away),spinning, knitting, sewing, dyeing, quilting,gardening,gathering, sorting, washing, delivering, and selling of eggs:hundreds and hundreds of eggs each week,reading (not as much as i'd like), and so on and so on and so on and so on... feeling a little scattered much of the time.

Crochet. This cushion has been such a happy project to work on, a quick and spontaneous make which I used to test out my new Raindrops stitch pattern.

Crochet

I also wanted to try using chunky yarn for the first time, so the combination of the new stitch and the new yarn was a whole new experience for me. I've used Stylecraft Special Chunky yarn, worked on a 6mm hook, in eight colours as follows :: ♥ Raspberry ♥ Lipstick ♥ Fondant ♥ Camel ♥ Meadow ♥ Aspen ♥ Lavender ♥ Denim There is enough yarn here to make two of these cushions, you only actually need 4 x 100g balls of chunky to make a 45cm cushion in this pattern. Unusually for me, I chose to order these colours into a repeating stripe (you know I usually go for random, so this was yet another new experience for me). The very rainbowyness of this project really did lift my spirits and the very chunkyness of the yarn made the rainbow stripes grow satisfyingly fast.

I'm ready to say “so long” to 2013, not in a bad way but in the way that someone says bye to a crazy year of adjustment, acceptance, and re-adaptation.

Three Kitchen Fairies

If anyone told me that 2013 was going to be this challenging I'd never believe it. Our year started in Argentina, and we traveled for the three first months of the year out of 13 suitcases, and set out feet in four different countries, until we finally settled here. We lost our cat in the transition, we left out dog behind too. If you love your pets the way we do, you know what it means. Even when pets are not replaceable we were able to adopt two kitties: Maple and Chilli who we love to pieces. Handmade by bachud. CRAFTY STORAGE. Ramblings of a sewing fanatic. Feather and Nest.
