This week I've had some time to start turning some of the ideas in my notebooks into actual designs. The abundance of carved wood, ornate stone buildings and the influence of art nouveau in Spain has featured heavily in my sketches. This is a sneaky peek at the design I'm working on at the moment ...
This design is at the final tweeking stage. When I get to that stage, I print it on to some paper backed fabric (just through the computer printer) in colours I'm thinking about. I always find a need to feel it and drape it all over the place before I decide whether to go ahead with handprinting yardage. This one is nearly there. If you haven't already, sign up for my newsletter (top of the column on the right under "about me") and you'll be the first to know when it is released. I'm thinking fresh new colourways in pale blue and cool green ready for spring ... thoughts?
In other news, the Yardage Design SHOP is now OPEN again. I will be back in Australia on the weekend, so orders will be posted from Monday. Early birds will snag a few left-over bargains!
