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.
Hello all, I’m officially on holiday mode until the end March. A very good opportunity came up to do a bit of travelling in Asia and then head to Australia for a couple years. The purses will continue but more likely from April this year. Please do keep in touch.

Thus began the search rather noisily, for the canister hidden saucily. We looked and lookedRead More →
Okay, so it is not the first day of Christmas but its a first day of December so this means that we can start to get excited about Christmas, doesnt it? This is the ‘Country Purse’ which shows a ‘partridge in a pear tree’. At the moment I have a few new purses in the pipeline which hopefully I can have finished soon and show you the progress. I am going to work my way backwards through the 12 days of Christmas. I would love to hear your feedback. 12 Drummers Drumming 11 Pipers Piping 10 Lords-a-Leaping 9 Ladies Dancing 8 Maids-a-Milking 7 Swans-a-Swimming 6Read More →

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.

We all want to know the inside scoop on the Royal Wedding right? Whether we are interested or not – in 12 days time, big changes are happening in the Royal circle. I’m sure it will be a memorable day and brides all over the world are going to ask for a ‘Kate-inspired’ wedding dress for the next few years. Clearly, April is a very important month this year – the way it was the Union Jack anniversary on April 12th (405yrs) as well as the 99 year anniversary of the Titanic sinking on Friday April 15th. In honour of all these very important ‘going-ons’ I’ve made a Cameo Purse with aRead More →
Spring better arrive soon! In the hope to speed along the sunshine and long days – I’ve been getting on with the sewing and created a few ‘newbies’. One of them being the newly striped union jack purse. Although the union jack idea is not new to Lady Joon – the striped version is fresh and has already attracted attention from Etsy bloggers.
