The other day the talented Luella from next door popped over to show us her latest creation. After completing a course in machine sewing she proudly showed us her incredible story book entirely made from fabric and stitched together using lots of different sewing techniques. Not only did the book show her mastery of sewing it also amazed us with the story line of ‘Neil’ the mouse who brazenly sets out on his quest by cuddling a cat! Much to his misfortune he is quickly devoured by the cat and Luella’s book cleverly shows his descent into the cats tummy!!
All hope is lost for ‘Neil’ as it seems there can be no return from such fate, however on the final page we were invited to help save ‘Neil’ by pulling him to safety! Miraculously ‘Neil’ is saved – bobble hat and all!
Its incredible the imagination children have and what they can do with it when their creative juices get going. It was great to see Luella’s book and we all had a good chuckle in the office.
Luella’s took her sewing class with ‘Annie 2 Pins’ a creative soft sculptor – for more information you can find a link to her work and website here.

Last weekend Agnes was invited to a “Knights & Princesses” Party. I was expecting the ‘dressing up’ box to be wedged open and the usual disney style princess costumes to be requested. But alas, Agnes decided all by herself that she wanted to be a ‘proper’ princess! Out came her favourite Hucklebones blue & white spot dress (summer 12), finished off with blue coat & hat (winter 10) and sheepskin collar (winter 12).She was extremely proud of her ensemble!When we got to the party she did not care for a moment that she was the only girl without a full length flowing number on andI watched on and was amazed by her poise and self confidence.
What this also highlighted to me is the timeless beauty that Hucklebones garments create. Mixing up the seasons and creating an individual and stylish look that a little girl is proud to wear, a Modern Day Princess!
I have been using Instagram a lot lately and I love it. It’s a fantastic way to share images. We would really love you to follow @Hucklebones on Instagram and #hucklebones any gorgeous photos you take of your girls out and about in Hucklebones. I look forward to seeing you on there.

The very talented Emma Donnellly from Take A Picture Lady was backstage snapping away at the Hucklebones SS13 photoshoot capturing the exciting behind the scenes action. We are really excited to present her beautiful images and thoughts here on the Hucklebones blog.
‘Behind-the-scenes’ at a Hucklebones shoot is always a really fun exciting time for the girls; reuniting, meeting new friends, a bit of pampering, eating lots of popcorn, oh and of course, modelling the gorgeous Hucklebones collection! Favourites amongst the girls where the shiny silver & gold pleats, pretty peter pan collars and big bow headbands and clips. Whilst we await the launch of Hucklebones SS13 here are a few glimpses of what is to come… Emma.

Following the Hucklebones AW12 photo shoot it was really evident how much our little models Agnes & Bea have grown over the past couple of years. Their sweet round faces have changed, their legs are getting longer and they have developed their own little personalities.
It’s wonderful to see these changes. Here is a little interview of them both and some fabulous images from the Hucklebones archive.
Do you have a nickname?
What is your favourite animal?
Bea: The giraffe because it has a very big neck
Agnes: Parrots, they have beautiful colours
What books do you like?
Bea: Any books with animals
Agnes: History books about the olden days
What would be your perfect day?
Bea: A perfect day to Bea is when everything runs well at school and her teacher let them build puzzles and draw their own stories on paper.
Agnes: Going to the beach for a little swim in the sea, hunt for crabs and have an ice cream.
Do you have a favourite Hucklebones dress?
Bea: Metallic pink pleated dress (AW12)
Agnes: the spotty blue 50′s dress (SS11) and the gold dress from (AW12)

We do not have long to wait before the launch of the beautiful Hucklebones autumn winter 2012 collection, in the meantime here are a few images from behind the scenes at the photo shoot. The shoots are always lots of fun and it’s fantastic to see the garments come to life on our gorgeous little models, Beatriz, Agnes, Danielle and Sofia. You may recognise these familiar little faces and how they are growing!
Favourite outfits amongst the girls were the fabulous metallic pleated dresses and skirts and the soft pink heart prints. I have too many favourites to mention!

Last weekend we spent a glorious Spring Sunday exploring Richmond Park in London. We barely scratched the surface but much fun was had tracking down the majestic deer, picnicking and spotting beautiful but very noisy parakeets that have taken the park to be their home. We had homemade quiche and lemon cake and flasks of tea to quench our thirst.
The leaves on the trees are now emerging and the ferns were magically uncurling out of the ground. We are looking forward to returning soon with another delicious picnic, a kite and the desperate hopes of spotting the fawns. They should be born in the next few weeks!
How exciting to explore such a natural environment in central London! (Agnes wearing sunshine flutter sleeve dress from Hucklebones SS11)
