This week I was digging around in some old files from my job as a textile designer. I was looking for examples of past work to show a client, and let me tell you, there were many a suzani rug designs in those files. A few years ago, suzanis were all the rage in home decor. Some of the other ethnic prints that were also popular then are still going strong, like ikats. But what happened to the suzani? I for one, am aiming to bring it back. I made this folksy group, and threw in a folksy suzani design (under the polka dot). It's a modern, folk, songbird, floral filled collection, and it will be at Surtex with my agent in a few weeks.

I'm not super into Halloween. Thinking up costumes stresses me out. So. Much. Pressure! Also, I am maybe the easiest person in the planet to scare. The image below may convert me to fanatical enthusiam though... Harry Potter corgi outfit?? I'll take two please!
