FABRICS - jane farnham for dashwood

Designer Jane Farnham has a new fabric collection coming out for Dashwood Studio in the spring called Lost Treasures. The idea behind the collection came about because Jane had so many things that were treasures to her when she was a child that have been lost and rediscovered over the years. These prints are a celebration of the memory of those treasured processions. From pressed flowers to keys that had no lock, broken pieces of jewellery to lucky horse shoes, four leaf clovers, pennies and bird nest discoveries, they all feature in Jane's Lost Treasures collection.

FABRICS - susan driscoll for dashwood

Another wonderful collection from Dashwood Studio to look forward to is Soiree by Susan Driscoll. Susan is known for her beautiful and unique colour combinations and stylised florals. Soiree was inspired by summer garden parties that run into the evening and the colours of the flowers pop against the night sky.

They've really got it right this year from the point of sale to their on trend print motifs on gifts. With their cards I was impressed with the sheer number of exclusive designs available in cheerful bold colours. I only hope my pictures do them justice...
