new website!

I have finally taken the plunge and worked out how to design and publish my own website. These past few years, my very lovely blogger friend Kellie has looked after my website for me ~ so generous and so appreciated. But, the time had come for me to get a website makeover, so I did. This is the current home page ...

Websites are tricky (I've learnt), but I'm super proud of mine ~ not because it's the most amazing website you've ever seen, but it is what I had in my mind and I found a way to make it a reality on the screen ~ big tick! I have a few more pictures and design elements I'd like to add, but for now it's up and running. I'd love to know what you think {check it out here}. Did you design your website? Leave me a link if you did.

Have a great week everyone!

{catch up} ...

It's been a while, but there has been a bit going on. Most of it seems to get recorded via instagram these days ~ it is still my social media of choice ~ it's fast and pretty and suits me at the moment. Here's a quick recap from the last week ...

There was quite a bit of green on the printing table! A new colourway for my Fan fabric {pea green on natural linen/cotton} ~ it was in the Yardage Design shop for a day before it sold out. More to be printed tomorrow. I also printed some little bags to send out with fabric orders for the next couple of weeks ~ just for fun! The "Freckle" tea towel is also available in a new colourway ~ white on natural linen ~ also very popular and has almost sold out since it was listed over the weekend.

My "Fan" fabric is being used to make a gorgeous new bag design by the extremely clever Nicole Mallalieu. I cannot wait to see the final product!

I custom printed and sewed this VERY BRIGHT cushion (and some bunting) for Cam ~ to celebrate her arrival home from hospital after a double lung transplant (amazing!!) ~ tangerine and hot pink are her favourite colours, and bacon is her favourite food ... quite tricky inspirations for a cushion, but here you have it ~ the Baconpalooza cushion!

Hope you're all having a good week! Until next time, see you on facebook or instagram!
