I enjoy working to commission. I may be sent a vague list of plants and colour suggestions. I may be sent a clear and complete list of all manner of things to include with carpet samples and curtain snippets to match. I have a few discussions and ponder. When happy I have the idea I get going.
I rummage through my store of tiny snippets, searching, searching and gather fabrics together, heaping them up on my table until happy I have a good mood of colour and range of designs.
