More loveliness can be seen over on my Pinterest Board – Pastel Pretties including this fab sweater by Louche!  Isn’t it gorgeous!

I even tried out my own pastel colour palette for 365patterns*.  A bit of a different direction, rather than flowers and florals – geometric prettiness!

Yesterday was my birthday!  Yay and with the yummiest cupcakes as a birthday treat and a big bunch of flowers I was a happy girl. Even the sun managed to come out to say “greetings” for a while.

Inspired by my full tummy I doodled a few cakes…..almost good enough to eat!

Spring Flirt (#365patterns) Pattern 7

On 25, Feb 2013 | No Comments | In My Pattern and Print | By patternandco

sprint flirt 1 patternandco

Spring flirt is such a perfect title for today, I had hoped over the weekend that the snow and cold was making way for a little bit of spring.  I’d spied a few clumps of snowdrops huddled together and the buds on the trees looked liked they wanted just a little bit of sunshine and then……came Monday morning and a fresh blanket of snow!  Spring is being a tease!

SO I stayed in the studio and dreamed up my own spring start with snowdrops and winter aconites…..hopefully crocus will join them soon!

In the meantime these little beauties are available in the shop.

This started life as a little watercolour on the corner of my sketchbook.  I like to flick through old notes and sketches, looking at things with fresh eyes, adding textures, playing around with the colours!
