Flossie's Garden6:49 am
So, I've had this idea in my head for a while. I like to imagine sometimes a pretty garden filled with magical flowers and plants, a bright and sunny place, and although it rains sometimes, it's that lovely fresh spring rain that makes great puddles for jumping in.
I think of it as a place Florence might like. (Now i could go off on a tangent here about how I don't for one second believe she's in such a place, but I'll try not to spoil the moment)
This imaginary garden is my inspiration for the fabric designs I've been working on tentatively, and for the dress I recently designed in Florence's name.
Everyone who reads here knows how much I looked forward to creating for my little girl, and how much I miss being able to make for her, but she is still an inspiration to me, and I will try to honour her with my work.
I have plans in the pipeline, hopefully something to celebrate her birthday next month.
Meanwhile, I just want to say thank you so much for all your kind words on yesterday's post, you probably have no idea how scared I was putting up those designs.
Caroline honey, I would be honoured if you would name one of your knitwear designs after Florence.
