Work in progress....

Hello! It's been a while!
Here's a few pictures to give you an idea of what I've been up to lately...


For the first time in ages I have my sewing machine out. I have an idea for some winter scarves now the weather has cooled. I have just about finished my first one. I'll photograph it properly when it's finished.


I've also been playing around with some new designs, using brushes and India ink. A real departure for me as I usually design with a black pen. But as my latest enthusiasm is towards hand painting my screen printing screens, designing in a more painterly way seems logical. 


And I have begun the process of painting another screen. This is based upon one of the drawings I produced when I did the 100 days of doodling....day 33.

All these are all works in progress. I feel like I'm going through a time where I have lots of ideas I want to try. I am skipping from one project to another, then back again. Lots of little pots on the boil. It's quite a nice space to be in.

I'll be back with some completed projects soon...hopefully :)

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.

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.

Hydrangea design...

Last week I had a session printing my hydrangea design. So, more greeting cards coming soon.  The hydrangea design has been printed in creamy yellow on various colours of poplin. I'm loving these pretty spring colours at the moment.

Have a wonderful week! Jill xx
