Trees n' things........

Some of the drawing I did this week as part of my 100 days of doodling challenge....



  1. Lovely Jill! I see you've included my favourite tree. I love the touch of colour too.

  2. Wow. Amazing doodles. Love the tree with the swing.

    1. Thanks Renee! For a while now I've wanted a swing in my back thought I'd start by drawing one... and perhaps this summer I'll figure out how to build a real one.

  3. LOVE the fruit and vegies... sadly when I doodle I tend to write words, the same word over and over. I spoke to my Mum for hald an hour yesterday and at the end of the conversation I had completed covered two A4 sheets in the word 'August' ... I have no idea why!

  4. That swing ... I feel as if I can just detect a hint of movement, as if not so long ago someone was swinging on it!

  5. Doodles? Holy moly my doodles do not look anywhere even remotely amazing as these :) xx

  6. Jill, I have a thing for trees (if you haven't already guessed from my blog header) and your doodles are gorgeous. I especially love the first one. I really REALLY love that one. x

100 days of doodling....

A couple of days ago, a friend of mine told me about a website where people commit to doing ...something....

...each day for 100 days.

Unfortunately, that particular 100 day project has closed and the people on it are up to day 34 already, so I've decided to do my own version.

What I want to do ...for 100 get out my black ink pen and draw...something...everyday for 100 days.

doodle #1 
I'm often having a little whinge to myself that I don't do enough drawing and

here goes...

It feels exciting...and who knows what new fabric designs may come out of it? But I don't really want to have too many goals or set directions. I'll just see where it goes....

My friend Terri is joining me in this challenge!

How about you? interested??

P.S. Take a look the page I have created called 100 days of doodling to see all the doodles I have done so far.

Printing on hessian...

Here's a few samples of  the new placemats and coasters I've been developing over the past couple of weeks.
The designs are printed on hessian and the edges zig-zagged  to stop fraying. They're fun to make and I have a few more designs too that I'll show you in a day or two as I complete them.
These ones have a nice, relaxed summer vibe. I hope you like them. 

So, now that I've figured out the designs it won't be long till I have some in my online shop.

Wooden placemats...

Hello! I've just spent the afternoon and evening screen printing a selection of my designs onto wooden placemats for a customer...the Poi Room...a gorgeous store here in Auckland.

I haven't printed this design for a while. It was inspired by stained glass windows.

I'll start varnishing them tomorrow.
Now it's time to wind down and relax as it's 9.30 pm here....
I hope you've had a productive Monday!
