Ehrman Jubilee Tapestry Kit & Embroidery Kits

I was looking around for a good Jubilee kit for one of our blog readers and thought Ehrman's in London were certain to have something special. And I was right. Candace Bahouth, one of my favourite designers, has created this celebration cushion.
But how can I ever stop looking at beautiful items... it is so irrestible to go turning the pages for more and I was glad to see more of Candace's designs, this time based upon paintings by Gustav Klimt. And they are on special offer at the moment! Which is all really fabulous since another special birthday gift is a few days in Vienna to see the Klimt exhibition there. I shall be wrapping up well, since I am travelling in November!
And not only that, I saw that Ehrman's were also selling embroidery kits for a set of beautiful cushions - the stitches used on the one above are simply are satin and some chain stitch - but how sumptious it looks.

These two designs based upon Baltimore Quilt designs are by Kaffe Fassett - the one above is called Baltimore Urn and the one below is Baltimore Bowl - really striking and fresh.
Then I came across this wonderful interview with Kaffe Fassett at the Ehrman Studios and I just had to share. Kaffe is not only one of the most brilliant textile designers of our generation, he is witty and charming and sheer inspiration to listen to.
