Inspiration - Sheffield


People often ask me what inspires my fabric designs, and my answer usually includes Sheffield. I've never lived there, but it was a regular haunt for a while and I still (try) and visit as often as I can.  So, here are a few images for you, all of which have inspired some of my designs (you should recognise the first one!).

I would like to stress that Sheffield has a lot of stunning 19th century buildings, and is built on 7 hills (hence "The Rome of the North"). It's also full of lovely people and has a great atmosphere (so not just decaying architecture!). Most of the photos below were taken by my husband (I think a couple are mine but it was quite a while ago!).

I'm now going to be taking a short blog break and will return on 30 August.
