I've got plenty to write about in the coming weeks, with lots to catch up on from the beginning of the summer; but I just had to start with something very exciting. There's a new addition to the studio. She's very small, fluffy, and can mainly be found sniffing around in corners and nibbling toes; and people fall in love with her on sight.
No, not quite a new assistant! Her name is Ida and she's ten weeks old, a jack russell crossed with a mystery who I found at Battersea Dog's Home.
I got very dog-broody after making friends with a dachshund in the studio, and I must say it's so lovely to have a pooch around when I'm working- though she can be a little distracting, just look at that face!
As yet there are no plans for a new line of puppy designs, but we'll see what Ida has to say about that when she's older...
