More at Home & Garden

As well as some of my cushions, Trudy at Home & Garden in Fakenham, has taken a pair of chairs that I have reclaimed and up-cycled to sell in her shop. I’m super excited to be working with Trudy. If you are in the area, go and take a look at her lovely shop and see some of my work at the same time.P1020913

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

Art House Textiles Launch

Wow, I never would have believed it. Saturday was fantastic. I had a great time chatting to people who came to my open studio to see my new range of textiles. If you missed the event, I always welcome visitors so come on over. I made quite a few sales and got lots of positive feed back for my work. I’m very excited and have beet tops in a pan as I speak and I’m looking forward to seeing what colour dye I can get from them.

Here’s an over view of the day for those who didn’t make it.
