One last chance!

Hi lovely Followers..

So here is the last chance to connect with the new site... please go to the Lissom Yarn blog, and sign up to the email subscription to stay in the loop with Lissom Yarn. No spam, just beautiful dresses and fashion projects dropped in your inbox semi-regularly. It's a win-win situation!

And year is looking pretty interesting, despite not having a shop-front...
I will be continuing to work privately for my beautiful clients; there are still so many wedding dresses and weddings to share with you on the blog, and there are plans for a bigger and better Lissom Yarn in 2014 - very exciting! 

So please stay posted, at

(This blog will shortly be de-activated)

Bloomin' Marvellous

When Meryl Streep sarcastically spits in the Devil Wears Prada: "Flowers for spring time? How very original..."  I always think: suck it up Meryl/Anna, you're fighting a loosing battle. I happen to think flowers in spring are really very nice and help distract me from all the work I should be doing. I guess that being Meryl/Anna, you probably have fast cars/ lots of Bollinger/ very nice Chanel clothes, and cocaine, to distract you from life's banalities: I have perennials. 

And herein is a celebration of the things blooming, growing or looking generally fecund that are inspiring me right now.
