Fumbling around in the dark last saturday night as I tried to get ready to go out, I was reminded to slow down. Holding the one candle I could find, I stood on tiptoes in front of the mirror trying to see how my outfit had come together. Rummaging through a pile of black clothes in the darkness, looking for one specific black cardigan, I stopped to realise the darkness. The stillness (aside from the thumping music of the party going on next door!) and the beauty of this new perspective. I think I'll have a candlelit evening sometime again soon.

Yesterday I worked in my studio from 9am to 9pm, with a headache that had lasted two days. Despondent. Frustrated. Exhausted and tired knowing this would not be the last of the long days. I've been preparing new ladies pants and tops, organising my workshop that will all be in our pop-up store come the launch of ENVELOPE MüCKE on Wednesday 17th March.
Today I awoke, headache free! I've been sewing scarves (see splat scarf pictured) and feeling excited about all the colours, the soft feel of the wool and how much I love wearing them come the colder winter weather. Aaah, how good it feels to be inspired again.
