printing again

When I was home in Australia in August, I picked up a small screen and squeegee to take back with me so I could print. After a bit of searching around, I found some nice inks and today I finally printed something!


It's just a simple, hand-cut stencil of some bunting strings in fire engine red ~ my favourite! My printing/sewing/creative space is a bit small as you can see (just a table really), but at least I have one!


It's nice to be printing again. I find it relaxing and completely satisfying ~ I've missed that feeling (and the smell of red ink, but that's another story!). I'll be sewing this up today for a bit of show and tell later.

Have a great Monday!

Cute bunting print!

That looks ace Nic! When you're finally home I'm inviting myself over for a screen-printing lesson, ok? Ok. ;)

I'd be lost without space to craft. So happy you have at least a tiny space to play with!

Thats brilliant that you could take a small one with you!! I love the bunting printing - perfect for a small space there!

Looking forward to seeing what you do with those lovely pieces. I so admire that you know when to stop... keeping things elegant. I keep adding and adding and adding and slowly go mad!

Oh, you have given me hope that one day I may be able to screen print in my small space! Love the red!

I am also quite smitten with your raspberry fabric too!
