I'm Back!

Hello! It is lovely to be back in blog land - I have missed sharing my creations with you. It has been a very long absence, I do apologise. I have a good reason for not being around though ........

 I am currently expecting my first baby!

It has been a difficult start as I suffered quite badly from nausea and sickness for the first 21 weeks. What with feeling so under the weather and getting used to commuting to London again for work I am sure you can appreciate that I have been left rather exhausted in the evenings and at weekends. A break from online life was unfortunately necessary. Thankfully my sickness has now passed and I am feeling fit and creative again!

I have so many things that I want to make - new products for my online shops and lots of lovely things for baby. I look forward to sharing all of my makes with you as I finish each project.

A Busy Start to 2011

A belated Happy New Year to all of my lovely blog followers!

The Christmas period was rather overwhelmingly busy here at Claire Hurd Design. There was many a time when I wondered whether I would be able to keep up with all of my orders but happily I managed to get them all sent out in time. In between the moments of worry about whether I could keep up if orders continued to arrive at the same rate this year were the more pressing moments of worry where I wondered what I would do if the orders stopped completely after the Christmas rush. I am very pleased to say that the orders have slowed down to a manageable pace and have not stopped arriving! I have also had quite a few baby gift commissions this year which are always lovely to do.

In addition to running Claire Hurd Design I am delighted to share with you the news of my fantastic new in-house furnishing textiles designer role at Jane Churchill which I began in the new year. It is such a wonderful opportunity to develop my design skills further with a well established and very well respected brand. I am loving it! I really couldn't have asked for a better working environment and lovelier team to begin 2011 with. A big thank you to everyone at Jane Churchill for making me feel so welcome.

Another lovely surprise this new year was being awarded the 'Stylish Blogger Award' by Emily over at Emily Parkes Vintage Textiles and Illustration. Thank you so much Emily, what a great start to the year! I shall have to think of seven facts to share with you and seven blogs to pass the award on to (that is going to be difficult as I read a LOT of blogs!). I will update you in my next post.

Well that is all for today. It is lovely to be back online. I shall be writing blog posts for you whenever I can and look forward to sharing lots of lovely textile goodness with you over the next few months.
