New Designs This Year!

My favourite part of making homewares is designing repeat surface patterns to be digitally printed onto fabrics for the home. Up until recently I have only been able to have my designs printed occasionally as I was sourcing from Overseas which took time and was expensive.
I have recently however found a UK digital printer who deals in short runs ... perfect for me!
I am SO happy with the quick production and quality of this printer and I will be having lots of new designs printed this year!
Here is one of my new designs that I made from an original lino print, which I then turned into a repeat and had digitally printed onto a medium weight cotton canvas fabric!

An introduction to Floristy evening course

This year I decided to try something new so I have enrolled on an evening course called 'An Introduction to all aspects of Floristry'
So far I have been to 2 classes and have learnt how to make a Button Hole and a Corsage, as a complete beginner I am learning a lot and cant wait to practise my new skills!
Next week is Hand Tied Bouquets ...

A Belated Post!

Just before Christmas I had a stall at The Preston Candover School Christmas Fair, the school was full of various gifts, chocolates, games and more and was a pleasure to be at!
Here is a little snap of my stall!
