Great finds

Our neighbor in bazaar fusion and friend of mine Claudia Cornew is making the most beautiful handmade bags made of 100% natural felted wool. Interesting shapes, beautifull colors and a perfect stitch make Claudia's bags a piece of art.
After 20 years of knitting and embroidering she's become an expert in working with wool and she is sharing her knowledge in a taller called 'lovin lana' at Centro de diseño in Mexico City. Take at look at her website

Lovely needlepoint

I live just across The Rug Company store in Mexico City. Last night I was walking my dog Rita when I saw this needlepoint wallhanging on the window and I absolutely loved the slavishly mix and match of colour and patterns.
Its called Jubilee and its designed by Lucinda Chambers, fashion director of Vogue.
Then I found this picture, it looks amazing in the room with all those cottagy romantic fabrics and then the Union Jack flag wich just makes it a total fashion statement.
