Yes, I'm that person who photographs strangers, but only when they have great style and they're a perfect match for their surroundings. Is it still creepy? #capetown

I took this photo in New York about 6 years ago, heart hammering in my chest, as I had just met my design icon, Orla Kiely and her husband Jonathan Dermott in their Bleeker Street store. I'd plucked up the courage to ask if they minded that I'd named one of my designs "Orla" in homage to the stem print queen, and they were very sweet, joking that they'd call their lawyers on me, and we chatted a bit about Cape Town, which they had visited years back. .

I was gutted to hear this morning that the online retail and physical @orlakiely stores were being shuttered, and wanted to send my best wishes to everyone involved, but most of all to @orlabyorla and @dermottjonathan. My tiny experience of running a biz gives me an inkling of the courage, vision, leadership and sheer guts it must take to build and maintain a business and brand on such a scale. I will always be a fan of #orlakiely designs, and remain in awe of what you have built.

Congratulations to all at @orlakiely for all you've achieved, and wishing you the best with whatever comes next. Also, thanks to the founders for being so nice to babbling, starstruck me.

I'm spending the weekend cutting up magazines and napping. Does it get better than that?

There's stripey sunshine on one of the hand-stitched linen pillows which I made for home a year ago. I've only made a few, just for the love of it, in true #makingfriday style. Have a great weekend !

Would you believe that this wild jungle is the narrow strip of garden in front of our apartment block in the City? What a difference a proper Winter makes.
