Summer Fun!

More summer fun today :) This design was bought to be used as gift wrap aimed especially for young children. This is me right back in my comfort zone- as apposed to being way outside it with the last piece I showed you!

It's extremely hot and muggy here at the moment so I'm not enjoying sitting in my little studio- I'm thinking I need to get some sort of fan. Don't get me wrong I am a real sun worshipper, but it's now so hot and heavy outside I've been wishing for a thunderstorm just to cool everything down. Is it just me or do you also love the smell of hot concrete just after it's rained?

Hi all! This design was a challenge for me to say the least! It is sooooo different from my normal style. Part of me likes it, part of me is not convinced!

Hope everyone has had a good week? I'm really looking forward to having a quiet, relaxing weekend- hope you all have a good one too!

Summer Smiles

All this summer sunshine is making me so happy. Here's a cheery design for you to see that reflects my current mood! Not sure why but I love drawing Ladybirds :)

Pattern Making 2

I've been away far too long haven't I. I've missed my blog and reading all your comments :( Not surprisingly there's been lots going on around here- orders to complete and some very challenging deadlines after which I felt like I needed to re-charge my batteries so I've made sure I've relaxed over the weekends.

Here's a few things that have happened over the last few weeks:

We went to Whitstable for a lovely day out.

I've had to rescue not one, not two but three birds that fell down our chimney and into our wood burning stove! (thank goodness its summer!)

We've had constant sunshine over the last couple of weeks. Yes! It actually feels like summer here in the UK! So I've been trying to make the most of it and gone out for lots of walks and had a few BBQs.

Watched a film that didn't impress :(

Watched a film I LOVED :)

Made some more Thingamajigs. Hopefully I'll be able to show you them soon.

Celebrated my brothers 30th Birthday.

And watched some elephants paint (on YouTube)- amazing!

Hope everyone's having a good week? Thought I'd leave you today with some more of my pattern making, I always like to experiment with different colourways- in fact I can get a bit obsessed with it, but don't worry I've narrowed it down to two versions of each to show you! Hope you like.
