Spring

To celebrate spring, I've spruced up the blog (it's not blue any more!) with a fresh new header. One of my loves is the tulip - in the garden and as a design element. I love the elegant shape of the flower and the colours of the petals.

Over the past couple of years, I've been interested in the way tulips have been used in Turkish textiles (it is the national flower there, after all) and have been collecting information. The latest addition is this textile I saw at the V&A Museum. I am so in love with these shapes.
