When I talk about my latest book #Uvknits it is with the knowledge that my designs were inspired by the beautiful hand-dyed ultraviolet light-reactive wool-based yarns hand-dyed with expertise and creativity by some of my favorite artisans. Without the yarn, these would just be ideas. I have such deep yarn Dyer love and respect for the work involved. It’s chemistry, it’s color theory, it’s marketing and data tracking, and it’s a heck of a lot of customer support. It is with great gratitude, I design. 🧶🧶🧶🧶🧶 Photos by @ntwamley and styling by @styledbymartina #fiberuary #fiberuarychallenge #fiberuarychallenge2020 #mothyandthesquid #evechamberstextiles #madscientistyarns #mymamaknitsyarn #fibreartstudio #martinslab #greenelephantyarn #qingfibre #qingfibres #thewoolkitchen #olanngrayarns #olanngra #easyknitscouk #knittersofinstagram #knittersofireland #knitweardesigner #knitstagram #instaknit #knittersofig #knitter #knitstergram #knittersoftheworld #knittersofravelry #igknitters #craftblogger #knitblog

I did a new blog post last week and I forgot to tell you. It’s about... dare I say the word sustainable living and the top five things I can live without in my home. One of them is making/creating my own home accessories like these cool baskets. And you know I love making my own homewares. There’s just something special about creating/making things with your own hands and having it on display in your home. Skip the overpriced décor and craft your own pieces to give your home a more personal feel. Plus, just imagine how great it'll feel when guests ask where your homemade baskets are from. Anyway I’m wafflin’ read if you like. *link in bio P.S I can’t believe my plants are still alive & so healthy looking 🌱 Forever in a pink pleated skursh . - - #creativeinteriors #pleatedskirt #eclecticdecor #eclecticfashion #punchneedlegang #makersgonnamake #creativehomes #creativity #punchbasket #myeclecticmix #colourmyhome #seagrassbasket #apartmenttherapy #slowliving #sustainableliving #makeyourown #sustainablefashion #slowhomeware

Beams of light filling the house this morning! It’s glorious but all the floors are looking like I have never mopped or hoovered so I’ll be whipping around the house! This is one of my favourite pieces of furniture I have painted, its one of the projects in my book #furniturecrush and it’s in my hallway (you can see that rainbow wallpaper in the mirror reflection) This piece is full of my screens for screen printing they fit perfectly in there! The fringe mirror is a tutorial in my highlights! I’m heading up to the big smoke for some absolute fun and meeting some of my absolute favourite people!! Can’t wait!!! Keep an eye on my stories tomorrow #mycreativeinterior #paintedfurniture #prettypastels #livecolorfully #abmhappylife #colourmyeveryday #irishdiyers #ilovecolour #popofcolour #colourcrush #pocketofmyhome #pastellove #createeveryday #designsponge #decorcrushing
