young designer::erin lightfoot...

Our family has a huge soft spot for Erin Lightfoot. She was the first friend Jess made when she went off to a new high school not knowing a single soul. I'm still not sure I've been forgiven for that! They sat together in the cavernous assembly hall and they've been friends ever since. Even survived weekly after school flute lessons together. And a whole pile of other things I'm sure it's best I don't know about!
Now there is another reason to love Erin...not that we need one. Look at the amazing fabric, clothing and jewellery she is designing. 
Erin was recently featured on the Finders Keepers blog. You can read her interview here.
Now Erin, when I come off my self imposed 100 day don't buy anything I don't really need challenge, there's this chair I have that needs some new fabric...
and those beautiful bangles would make some nice gifts too don't you think :)
That's Erin on the right, my girl in the middle and their friend Matt. I may get shot for posting that. But I'm overseas so they'll have a hard time finding me:)
You can see more of Erin's wonderful work on her website...

  2. I do like her work, especially the fabric on the chair. There's something a bit '80s about it. Will go and look at her site now.

    And as for your daughter's talents, I am quite speechless! Amazing!

  3. She is very talented, I love those bangles too! And that chair is amazing! Thanks for sharing Erin with us Kerry and I hope you're having fun!

  4. It's beautiful work!
    Hope you are enjoying your holiday Kerry :)

  5. Wow, what a talent Kerry. Erin is a wonderful designer and, isn't it lovely to see our children and their friend's doing well ?
    I bet it only seems like yesterday that they were at their new high school and now, here they all are, grown up and making their own living.
    Hope that you are having a wonderful time Kerry. Have a drink for me won't you ? XXXX

  6. Amazing bold colourful work. I love the fact that she applies her designs to different areas!

  7. Lovely work !
    It's very difficult for me to comment on your blog. I just wanna tell you that if you have wondering where I've been :)
