Wow! Were did the week go. I've been busy creating - Womens: Denim skirts and lush Velvet and Stretch Cotton Sateen boatneck tops....see the Felt shop
Babies: Merino dresses (little Emily, this is for you sweetheart) and leggings (a draft at the mo)
Yes its my birthday today, its kinda snuck up on me. I went and bought a wee supply of wine at the supermarket last night...my husband has the day off and has promised a picnic, so I got a couple of those ity-bity bottles of methode and my fav. Sav Blanc (Dashwood at the moment) and I got asked for id at the checkout. Well, fancy that! I was flattered, but I still felt the colour rising in my cheeks - I'm 33 today, and while its nice to think that on the outside I'm so well preserved its caused me to ruminate on the subject of judgements.
Earth-shattering I hear you say, well, I claim it is my perrogative to do a little naval-gazing on the anniversary of my beginning in the world. Isn't designing all about judgement? Colour, line, form, texture ..... how that relates to a human - their form/colouring. How can you be non-judgemental and really into your fashion or any sort of creative endeavour for that matter? I'd like to think I'm a "non-judgemental person" and I've heard myself say that a number of times, but is there really such a person? I think "non-judgemental" is a label we like to bandy about a bit too much. It sounds good. But its all a bit of an ego-stroking lie isn't it?
Ok - so thats my naval gazing out of the way for another year!
Hope all is well in your world.
