Beautiful colours, lovely handle. I ordered these fabrics to cut up and put in something, but the plans will have to change as they are too beautiful to cut! Really speedy service as well! Thank you!

About

Design, Print, Stitch, Quilt

Many moons ago, when my boys were tiny, when I needed something else to keep me sane, I discovered Etsy. I was dabbling in mixed media paper collages then and much to my surprise they were a real success. This brought me to the attention of art directors from large companies which led to being commissioned to design stationery, food packaging and a book cover.

I began experimenting with a Print Gocco to add more of a 'screen print' feel to my collages which then set me down the path of designing and printing my own fabric panels, which I still do today. Most of my designs are hand drawn, although recently I've been using the computer to design.

I'm inspired my everything. Living on the farm, I'm obviously inspired by the countryside, but by slightly odd things too. One design I have on the drawing board at the moment was inspired by cutting potatoes to make some chips (french fries.) I'm a avid collector of what I call 'vintage treasures' that I've thrifted and what my husband calls 'other people's crap'. One of my favourite things to do is to collect little bits and bobs for my shop photos.

*PLEASE NOTE: The base cloth I use has a natural cotton seed fleck and the density of the flecks can vary from bolt to bolt, sometimes even metre to metre.

If this is going to be a problem, please let me know so I can make sure the backgrounds match as closely as possible.
