Spring Flirt (#365patterns) Pattern 7

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

Heirloom Beauty (#365patterns) Pattern 6

Heirloom Beauty1 patternandco

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!

Together is our favourite place to be



The swans along the water glide,
Unfettered and yet side by side–
So should true lovers ever be,
Together ever–ever free.

The Swans Along The Water Glide by Edith Nesbit

Prints available in the store.

Snowflakes, mushrooms and brown paper

I love the little things that inspire me, walking out in the snow the other day, finding a wooden mushroom that has the most fabulous texture on the front, making paper snowflakes and wrapping presents in brown paper!

And the snowflakes keep on falling inside and out :)

Splish Splash T shirt

On 07, Dec 2012 | No Comments | In My Pattern and Print | By patternandco

 

I am as pleased as punch to share my news today (although I think a few of you knew before me!)

Splish Splash was made into a cool tee by the fab Spoonflower for the One- Yard Wonder Under the Sea design comp and aren’t the girls adorable!!!

And more good news, the fabric pattern is available for sale over at my store so you can make your own Splish Splash Tee!!

Just behind where we live is a small wood and occasionally, if you are very lucky you can catch the deer hiding!

Splish Splash Childrens Tee

Meet Ellie she is the grown up sister of my “Little uns” collection!  Ellie loves her wellies and she loves splashing in puddles.  The kind of girl that will confidently stride over to a puddle and walk with a splish through the rain water!  I think I may have a bit of Ellie still in me :)

The print is called “Splish Splash” and was inspired by a verse I found “If all the splishes and splashes were one, What a great adventure that would be!”

Storey teamed up with Spoonflower for a nautically inspired fabric design contest and I couldn’t resist when I saw the cute top!  And the best news is the winning design will be featured in the newest Storey’s bestselling One-Yard Wonders series: the upcoming 101 Little One-Yard Wonders!

If you like the design, stop by and fav “splish Splash.”  Thank you.

Tis the season

It is the season after all!  I am looking forward to Christmas, not quite ready to put up the tree but definitely time to start present shopping and wish dropping!!

The Inkling is on the list but if I am really dreaming big then you can add the Cintiq to that as well.

We are planning on moving in the new year so a couple of adobe pillows from The Awesomer would be fun or a set of CMYK Pillows would also look great in the studio!

Books on pattern, books on art, books on design, old books, new books…….just send me a gift voucher from Amazon 😀

A box of Christmas Crackers from Liberty’s.

Failing all that a trip home would be nice to spend the holidays with my family!

What’s on your Christmas wish list?
