Hi everyone, I have to apologize to my followers and to my lovely blog, as I have totally neglected it once again! I definitely know what my new years resolution is going to be.. So whats been happening? Well, firstly me and my husband are buying our first house together! We have looked at quite a lot now and have been through the initial ‘fun’ stage and out the other side in to the slightly confused and overwhelmed stage!. However, we did find the perfect one and although its not definite yet, I am very excited , particularly about the new Laura Olivia studio which is in the form of a lovely large summer house on the back of the house, a far cry from the Laura Olivia spare bedroom.

Last month I also bagged a fabulous new client, and was working like crazy for them through October. They specialize in home textiles and supply some of the major high street home retailers. Last week I finished designing lots prints for the Autumn Winter ranges at Dunelm which were well received, so am really looking forward to seeing those next year in the stores. Although I can’t show you any of my designs as they are not released yet, here is some of the research that I did beforehand looking at some of the best examples of kitchen/dining prints.

I have always loved Ulster Weavers but their latest ranges are fab, here are some of my faves.
