Happy Holidays!

Thanks so much for supporting Paravent in its first year... what a year 
of changes and new beginnings! I'm looking forward to 2013, how about you?

Hope you have a fun and safe time! :)

Creative Space: a new neon

It started by chance... two balls of wool glimpsed next to each other and a smile 
from me... yes, they'd look fabulous together. More time passes as I contemplate 
just which pattern would work best... and finally a finished piece.

I keep wondering when I'll be at the end of my neon fascination but then I see that 
fine line of neon against the linen (pic above) and realise it's still as strong as ever.

New neon cushion is in the shop.

More creative spaces can be found here.

Empress' new clothes

Sorry I haven't been around for a while. It's the crazy season here... end of year 
madness with so many things going on. I've also had my big girl go off to China 
so there's been a bit of pointless fretting too. But then suddenly I had this idea... and 
I began measuring and cutting and sewing... and I made myself a dress and a top.

The idea was to have something cool to wear in the meltingly hot temperatures we've 
been having but, as always, it seems I can't get away from being the queen of black ;)
It's a silly vanity, but I sewed some paravent labels on them too.
So many things I should be doing instead...

Hope the beginning of your holiday season has been fun :)
