My friend Laura is selling a renovated house on Clyde Road in Didsbury, Manchester. Laura decided she needed some exceptional photos of her property, so asked her photographer friend; Malcom Birkett to take some.
Fabulous styling of one of my Harris Tweed quilts. Thanks Laura and Malcom. And a big up for friends. xRead More
My talented and glamorous friend; Jo Bradbury, is a wedding photographer and will be at Bride, the wedding show at Tatton Park, Cheshire on 1-2 Feb;
Incidentally, all the fabulous images of my quilts have been taken by Jo and Jo will be showing my yellow velvet quilt on her stand at Tatton; as modelled here by Rufus the cat;
(However, all the photos of cute Rufus and my yellow velvet quilt were taken by his owner Mike, also a wedding photographer. See previous post; http://lisawatsonquilts.wordpress.com/2013/09/30/model-of-the-day-is-rufus-the-cat/
I don’t wish to confuse you, but I do wish to be honest!)
A British made Harris Tweed and velvet quilt is just so an ideal wedding gift in 2014 for brides and grooms. x
And, if you are getting married in 2014, visiting Bride, the wedding show at Tatton park on 1-2 Feb is an ideal starting point for arranging your big day.
And, if you do go to Bride, don’t forget to say hello to Jo, at stand 224, as well. xRead More
Can it really be only a week since the Open Call for British Designers at Liberty of London.
I really enjoyed the event, had lots of fun with my queue buddies and got to pitch my quilts to Ed (the MD) and Julie (head of the Liberty Christmas shop who suffered a bauble crisis). So thrilling to see all the lovely characters from the C4 Liberty show. http://www.channel4.com/programmes/liberty-of-london
Ed liked the bold orange and hot pink with purple tartan Harris Tweed quilt best!

Here is my cute little devil (note red eye!) Iona snug as a bug – in my quilts!
The best wintry sun and frosty morning walking the dog earlier on Chorlton Ees, http://www.spottedbylocals.com/manchester/chorlton-ees-nature-reserve/ but blimey was it nippy. Now wrapped up cosy in a quilt whilst tap, tap tapping at my computer.

I am so pleased with my beautiful quilt. The colours are lovely and they tone in really well with our bedroom colours.

Lisa is very proud of her quilts and justifiably so. I have never seen any like them, photos do not do them justice.
