Am gradually building up my collection of Alain Gree children's books for the wonderful illustrations. Here's my latest addition.

60s Heals Op art fabric and 50s cushions by Jane Foster






Am desperate to show you some new designs I've been working on but I can't until they're in the shops for legal reasons. I can however show you fabric items I've also been making.
More vintage fabric cushions - can make these to order so please let me know if you'd like one. My first photo shows some amazing 60s Op Art Heals fabric designed by Neil Bradburn called 'Contour' which I was tempted to make into a bed cover but have now decided to sell as I like white duvets instead with coloured cushions on.

Jessie Tait - another great loss



I can't believe that one of my other huge inspirational figures has also died recently. Jessie Tait died 12th Feb aged 81. She designed for Midwinter and I grew up with her ceramics in my family and then later collected some myself. Unfortunately, these vases are taken from a photo in a book and don't belong to me.
To me, her designs still remain very contemporary and modern.
