Colour trends for 2013

I have been looking at new colour trends for 2013 and the tribal trends move onto different colours and tribes in casual wear.  I really like the denim shades and the vibrant latino colour palette.  Images are copyright of textile view magazine.

Huddersfield food and drink festival

Last week I went to see what Huddersfield food and drink festival had to offer.  There were lots of local restaurant stalls as well as Yorkshire produce and unusual foods.  St George square in front of the railway station was a mass of people tasting the various food and drink on offer.  You could choose ostrich, llama or zebra burgers, giant meringues or some sugared creepy critters.

British summertime

For a few days only the British summertime has arrived and so decided to enter the Hallmark British summertime design competition.  I chose pretty pastel shades for my jam and ice cream designs. What could be more British than strawberries....one of my favourite fruits. Yummy
