' Floral Song' for Lewis and Irene


Floral Song by Cassandra Connolly for Lewis and Irene

I sat down to write this blog post and it suddenly dawned on me, this is my SEVENTH collection that I've designed for Lewis and Irene. That really is mind blowing! I never thought three years ago that I would be sat here announcing that, so thank you all for buying my fabrics and in turn letting me do what I love doing every single day. Anyway, without further ado, I am so excited to announce that 'Floral Song' for Lewis and Irene will be available from January 2024.

Featuring pretty florals, daisies dancing in the soft breeze, little blossoms and even a sweet butterfly hiding amongst the blooms all in a subtle summer palette. I hope this gets you in the mood for warmer weather and days spent sewing in the summer sunshine.

Floral Song by Cassandra Connolly for Lewis and Irene

Originally inspired by a poem which my Granny wrote to me in a birthday card when I was 5 about a magical place which only we could see, I wrote this poem almost in response to the original. Inspired by a moment, a pause in time, I wanted to whisk you away to a world where flowers are art and art is all things floral.


Take my hand, walk with me.

Pause for a second, what do you see?

Look beyond the daisies dancing,

as soft winds blow, lupines sway, entrancing.

Hidden, unseen, the little blossom peeps.

A piece of my heart, this bloom, it keeps.

In this time, the secret hour,

silence enfolds us, like petals of a flower.

Observe: further, deeper. As light shifts,

colourful sprigs, natures gifts.

Immerse your mind, open your heart;

hear the long lost language, truly see the floral art.

As buds dance in the sunlight,

capture this moment, hold it tight.

Linger a little, but not too long.

Treasure this moment; fall in love with the floral song.
