Giant Smiling Tomato

I blogged a while ago about our first batch of homegrown tomatoes (must have been a slow week) and mentioned a giant tomato that was growing away. Well, the plants are dying off now so he has been picked. Da daaa!

Check that baby out. Seeing as it's the 31st October I did a bit of carving. Halloween seems like a bit of a horrible thing to celebrate but I had to!

He's a friendly anti-halloween tomato!

New Handmade Monkeys

Still very busy with the current issue of the magazine but I thought I'd take a little break to upload some new Storeyshop monkeys. Here are the latest newies and there will be more new designs next week!

All available to buy now. I can also personalise monkeys with felt initials sewn on their fronts or sewn names. Contact me through my shop for more details..

Have a lovely weekend!

Monkeys To Be!

Lots of Storeyshop customers ask about other handmade monkey designs so I thought I'd add a photo of some of the socks I have available to make monkeys from. There are also some more new designs on order too which I will add soon.

Feel free to request a Storeyshop monkey from any of the above designs! I am designing the magazine this week so I had better crack on with that but I will be monkey making again this evening.

I'm home!

We had a great weekend in Sussex in the sunshine last week. We saw my parents and friends, sat in nice pub gardens, went for walks on the downs and by the river and cycled from Southwick to Worthing along the seafront.

Last week I was back working at Company magazine. Busy as always but good fun and it was lovely to see all my friends in and around London. I got back up north late on friday and brought the fond memories of living by the seaside with me (along with a Topshop bag with a new coat in!). On sunday we went to sample the Northumberland coastline at Dunstanburgh Castle. It was lovely but very blustery and remote! The weather wasn't great for photos but nevermind..

Now I am back starting a new issue of the lifestyle magazine. I have also started some new projects which will be available to see and buy online very soon. They include more storage boxes and frames inspired by Beca's paper-covered products. Watch this space!

I Love You More Than..

The magazine is finished for another issue. Woo hoo! After three weeks of that and an entire weekend of bathroom decorating (it's nearly done even if it does look slightly more lilac than Steel Grey), I am back to full-time Storeyshop for a week before a week back on Company magazine in London where I used to be senior designer. I am looking forward to going back, seeing the girls and my other friends in and around London. Oh, and maybe a spot of shopping.

For now, though, I am making a custom monkey for a customer and more cards in the 'I Love You More Than...' series. Here are the current favourites. They are all available to order in the shop!

Right, I better get monkey sewing!
