I am not usually a pink person, but I have had a bee in my bonnet about this particular combination of colour and design for a while now and it refused to go away until I did something about it. I am so pleased that I did because this may just be my favourite pattern yet. I know I say that each time I release something new, but it is always true - my newest work is almost always my favourite, which I hope means that I am headed in the right direction.
Simplicity is at the heart of everything I make, and I try to make my home as calm and pared back as possible too, so this sampler fits right in. It was also delightfully quick to make - from idea to finished product in just a few days. I always know I am on the right track when things come together like that - I go into a sort of making frenzy and can't focus on anything else until it is finished. After spending silly amounts of time working on things that really weren't 'me' at all (none of which I have finished or plan to release), this was an absolute joy.
I also wanted to make this sampler to act as a daily reminder to myself that I need to take its sentiment to heart more: to care not just for others, but for myself and my surroundings too. Rest, explore, make, feed, learn, grow, and take time to do the things that feed my soul. I am often so caught up in trying to get everything done and not let anybody down, that these small (but massively important) things fall by the wayside. I hope that seeing this gentle reminder every day will help me to change that.
Wishing you all peace, calm and all the nurturing things.
