It's all about new and remodelled for me this year. I have embarked on a new journey in my personal life, one which has been brewing all of last year (and if you know me well enough, you would know also, brewing well before then too). I have a new house to live in, along with a new studio. I have relocated to said house with my two beautiful children, into a new neighbourhood. My dear boy has started at a new school. And here I have a delicious new website, incorporating my new blog and dedicated online store for Mainichi. And the new journey for my working life is the merging of my two disciplines under the one banner, bringing together my passions for making, and interiors under the banner of Mainichi. So please take a look around. Enjoy the eye candy. And please support local, Australian talent and design, and partake in one of my creations in the shop. Or share the news with your nearest and dearest. Oh yes, and I'm on twitter now too. Just look for MainichiDesign. Hope to see you here regularly!

And new brooch designs - slight departure from the usual circular motifs. These are inspired by all things geometric happening in interiors at present. Featuring pieces of recycled leather samples, cut by hand and stitched randomly. My favourite thread to use with this leather is the fluorescent pink and yellow kind!
