Time flies when you are having fun.

Time flies when you are having fun is so true….As well as baby growing (and crawling into every nook and cranny!) I had my first glimpse of the new fabric line and have been working behind the scenes on new projects. Work is fun, not always easy to balance the time between work and family and the one area that suffers the most when times get busy is the blog!

Spring alternative colours

Spring is a little fickle at the moment, one day glorious sunshine and green leaves budding with blooms in full floweriness and the next day, cold and grey and soggy fallen petals.  So ever the optimist lets shout out SPRING with a new collection of patterns and colours inspired from a few blooms I have outside.

Sunday Good News

It’s Sunday, the sun is shining and I’m checking out the UPPERCASE video before I head out.  Here Janine (publisher/editor/designer) of UPPERCASE magazine gives up her top ten tips for how to stand out in a crowd.

Did you check out tip 4, original motifs – you’ll find my dandelions!

Janine also talks about their Spring issue which has a very special feature: the UPPERCASE Surface Pattern Design Guide and it is even more special because there is a little bit of me in it!! 😉

Seriously take a peek, besides me you’ll find some fantastically talented folk in the magazine and you can pick up a copy using the special little discount code ‘USPDG2014‘ – $15 off a subscription just for my lovelies!

*Happy dancing out of the studio today as a few of my designs are on there way to surtex!*

Celebrations

happy lets eat cake day

They say good things come in threes!  Firstly it’s my birthday and a good reason to celebrate right?  Secondly the wee one woke me with cuddles after a whole 6 hours uninterrupted sleep!  YAY! So now I actually feel alive enough to celebrate!

The third announcement – Impossible as it sounds I have something that tops them all (yes even better than baby sleeping which I thought would be the best news ever) I can now announce I shall be designing exclusively brand new spanking patterntastic fabrics for Modern Yardage.

Modern Yardage is a great company, for me having a good working relationship is sooo important and the team behind the scenes are super communicative and keen to work with designers!  And what a set of designers they already work with – you can find all of our profiles over on the Meet the Designers page and read a bit about little me!

I hope you can join me on this journey.   I already have some designs taking shape and want to whip out the sewing machine but my skills are basic so I am gonna learn as I go and share the experience here on the blog as well as featuring lots of talented sewers and crafty bods that adore beautiful patterned fabric just like we do!

I  will be shouting out when my first line of fabric comes out, please join me on facebook or if you prefer instagram for a peek at the design life of a ex pat!
