Satisfied Customer

My customer in Germany who bought the special order pillow covers kindly sent me photo’s of them nestling comfortably in her lounge,Cushions 1 don’t they look great!Cushions 2I am so pleased she likes them 🙂

Customer orders

When it come to customer orders, I’m always nervous about starting them because it is so easy to make a mistake with block printing as my block can easily placed down half a turn out! As hand block printing is uneven anyway I am extra sensitive to that too.

This is the start of a commission for three 40cm x 60cm cushion covers.Commission 1 Commission 2 Commission 3 Commission 4 Commission 5Turned out well don’t you think? I really like them. 🙂

But this is what can happen when you concentrate too hard!Commission 6
