Daisys and butterflies....

Below is a photo from perhaps my youngest customer so far.


My neighbour, Miss J... aged 12... bought 4 of my cards in her favourite colours, framed them and has them displayed in her room. Great idea! Love it!

  3. Hello Jill, your cards look lovely framed like that . . . Miss J may grow up to be a designer, with a eye for art :) I love your doodles especially the paisley. Thank you for following my blog. I don't understand why your thumbprint didn't show up in my list of followers, I'm so glad you left a comment or I would have missed saying thank you. You might want to try again, so that it does . . . these computers can sometimes get stubborn. I am delighted to meet you. I too am a doodler and I love to doodle in my journal in the evening when my hubby is watch TV.
    Have a glorious day,
    Your newest follower and blogging sister, Connie :)

  4. Hi Jill, I'm back . . . I flashed back to my blog and there you were, so ignore what I said about your thumb print not showing my. Let's blame it on a senior moment, LOL. I just celebrated my 68th birthday. I'm going to add you to my blog list, that way I wouldn't miss a single post, or fabulous doodle :)
    Keep smiling, your blogging sister, Connie :)

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.

100 days of doodling....

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

...sketching...photography....painting....writing....

...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 days...is 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 designing...so...

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.

I'm back ...on track...

Hello, it's been a while!
Life got a bit hectic there for a while, caring for elderly parents, one of whom is very ill. So of course it still is really busy, but new routines have emerged to cope with it all.
And I have taken a few days off during the past month and being rested helps a lot too. I got a bit too tired toward the end of last year and that wasn't much fun. But sometimes those bad times can instigate some good changes. It certainly has this time. I feel like I have strengthened my boundaries regarding my social life and prioritized eating well and getting enough sleep. Already I am feeling huge benefits. The challenge will be to keep these good things going! But I'm feeling determined and optimistic.
As part of an effort to bring more balance to my life I am now trying to limit my gardening business to mornings only. That means I have more flexibility to help my parents. And when I'm not required I'm going to use the time to put more time and energy i…
