Also, the new tulip print pouches in marigold are up in the shop! These are hand printed on a lovely hemp and organic cotton fabric, I'm really happy with how they turned out.

I've been prototyping some new products lately (exciting!!) - hopefully I'll have something to show you soon, in the meantime here are some pictures from when I got side tracked making patterns with d-rings...

I bought these beautiful ceramic buttons from Illyria Pottery on Etsy a while ago now.
I think the backs are just as beautiful as the fronts.
I'm wondering what I shall do with them, but in the meantime I am quite happy for them to sit prettily on my windowsill.

This time of year is always the most productive for me. Spring is in full springiness and the evenings are so much longer. The craft show season is gearing up and this always gives me impetus to design new items as well as stocking up on old favourites.
What I'm finding most exciting is that things on the screen printing side are all starting to come together. I've finally managed to sort out a way to screen print in my very limited space. Yay!! I have also found a source of beautiful hemp and organic cotton fabric that is perfect for the bags, cushions, purses and such things that I have been thinking of for ages. I still have to find the perfect zipper and other hardware but that will happen.
So, look forward to mountains of handprinted loveliness in the very near future!!
