So now that the dust has settled, I’m back and and ready for another fresh batch of Lady Joon purses. I’m based in Australia for the moment and look who joined me? My Singer Sewing Machine had a long, adventurous journey from wintery England, over the Indian Ocean to sunny Fremantle, Australia.
Lady Joon was featured in this years’ Royal Ascot Magazine, alongside some great names in Fashion, to celebrate The Royal Ascot’s 300th Birthday. A great day for Ascot and a great day for Lady Joon. Spiffing – I do say.
Good news for Lady Joon this week – the Seaside Purse has been featured on an Etsy Treasury ‘The Dog Days of Summer’ along with some beautiful photography and paintings of dogs. Have a look here: http://www.etsy.com/treasury/MTQxODU2Nzl8MzQwMTk1NjU4/dog-days-of-summer

How lovely is it to see all the autumn colours out? Yes, I know its getting chillier but it is also so pretty in the autumn with all the leaves whisping around. Inspired by this is my autumn purse on a custard-yellow hand dyed cotton. “It was one of those perfect English autumnal days which occur more frequently in memory than in life.” P. D. James
Hello, hello! I know that it has been a while, I hope you had a great hallowean and lots of sweets/pumpkin pie/dressing up? I have a little suprise pumkpin purse for you this week, its a beautiful custard-yellow colour. My fave colour of the moment. P.S. I tried to think of a sound which a witch makes but couldnt think of how to write it so will go with ‘swooosh’ for now (thats her whizzing past on the ‘ole broomstick).
