I have managed much blogging lately it's all been a bit crazy with work, the winter weather and most importantly becoming an AUNTIE!!! After a long wait 9 months + 9 days (was obviously too cold to come out) Poppy Nancy Lois Nelson finally made an appearance on Friday 17th December. She is just perfect, my sister did amazing, and I'm a very proud auntie!

Here is my submission for the fantastic website they draw and cook! I had so much fun creating this recipe illustration. Bilberry Pie is one of my mum's specialities, wild bilberries grow on the moors where I grew up so me and my sister used to go out collecting them (coming home with purple stained hands and mouth where we'd eaten more than we'd collected) mum now buys them in a jar which means we can have bilberry pie all year round!
Thanks so much to the extremely talented Nate and Salli for letting me be part of this great project.
What's a bilberry?? N.B "The fruit is smaller than that of the blueberry but with a fuller taste. Bilberries are darker in colour, and usually appear near black with a slight shade of purple. While the blueberry's fruit pulp is light green, the bilberry's is red or purple, heavily staining the fingers and lips of consumers eating the raw fruit".

Samantha Bryan makes these delightful little characters from her studio in Wakefield. This is the first time I have seen her work first hand and I have to say I was taken aback by these delightful, playful intricately made figures. I would love to give one of these little fellas a home.
Oh golly gosh
Oh Golly Gosh. Her work involves stitched paper and fabric collages with a vintage feel.
What I couldn't resist coming home with................
And Made has a studio/shop in Manchester's Craft and design center so next time your there make sure you pop in and have a look .
