A peek into my sketchbook



These are some charcters I've been doodling recently. I'm thinking of photoshopping scanned in liberty fabrics into more carefully worked versions of them, and maybe developing them for screenprinting...

What do you think? What would you like to have images like this on?

The Etsy 'do'



I had a fab time at the Etsy do at the Fashion and Textile Museum the other evening. I met lots of fab people, and was chatting so much I didn't take anywhere near as many photos as I planned to! It was really lovely to see Mary from Quite Contrary Crafts again, that's her fabulous hand cut card above. I first met Mary at the folksy Christmas do, there were other lovely folksy people there including Forever Foxed and Noisette with the mini noisette bump!

The fabulous sparkly crown pictured above is by Janine Basil. She makes awesome headpieces and fascinators, all sparkly and feminine, but they really pack a punch at the same time. I love them.

I was reunited with Heidi of Polkadots and Blooms. We spent half a day queuing together at the Liberty Open Call. It was lovely to see her again. Heidi makes pretty home wares and accessories using vintage fabrics.

Taking photo's of everyones work and dispensing photography advice was Heidi Adnum. She took some lovely pictures of my dolls, and very clearly knew her stuff. I was the last person who had their photo's taken, because I kept starting to chat to people while I was queuing and drifting away from the queue!

Other fabulous people there were Sannapanda,  Crocuss (who makes very pretty jewellery) and Etincelle Design (who makes really striking tribal inspired jewellery)

And the lovely girl who's owls are pictured above and didn't have a card...I've forgotten your shop name, do let me know so I can link to it!

The only disappointment of the evening was that I didn't get to take a box of wine home - unlike Mary!
