Mountains and Lakes...

This time last Saturday I had one day to catch up on some work, complete a custom order, re-pack and set off on my journey to the Lake District the next morning. Having never visited til now I didn't know what to expect, so when we arrived 4 hours later I was awestruck by the beauty of my surroundings. For four happy days we enjoyed wonderful walks/climbs, delicious cakes, beautiful scenery, barbecues and campfires. I took hundreds of photos over the few days, but these are a couple of my favourites...

'Hilltop' - Beatrix Potter's house, where we got to see (and touch - I'm not sure if this was actually allowed, but my god-daughter seemed to think so!) original drawings and letters Beatrix had written to friends (and illustrated - Benjamin Bunny and pals made an appearance in a letter to Margot) was simply magical.

Excitingly, the Autumn issue of Cotswold Essence came out last week, featuring a double-page spread on Charlotte Macey Textiles!! It's wonderfully-written and entitled "Get cosy in the Cotswolds". If you are in or around the Cotswolds and can get your paws on a copy I'm on pages 48-49, and if not you can have a read of the online version here. I finally got my hands on a hard copy yesterday... x
