My Pattern and Print
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.
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
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!!

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.
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!!
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?
It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!
Outside the street lights and decorations have been put up ready for the Christmas market and my favourite christmas drink – Glühwein. Glühwein is a traditional drink here in Germany usually made from red wine, cinnamon sticks, cloves, star aniseed and citrus. I love it mit Schuss (with a shot) and after one or two we have been known to put the world to right including coming up with one of our first business ideas – a couple of hot glühwein drinks and a few scribbled ideas on a napkin perfect evening 😀
