I've been playing with my colouring in on Spoonflower (again!) and toying with the idea of ordering some of their cotton voile to make a top for myself and/or some dresses for my baby twin girls...can't come to a final decision on which pattern though!

I ordered a whole bundle of fabrics from Spoonflower and they arrived yesterday. I will be making lots of dogs and cushion covers with them for my Etsy shop...as soon as I get round to it!
I'll also be making the new fabric designs available to purchase from my Spoonflower shop soon.

Vintage folky style patterns from the 60s and 70s have been a big influence in my work (the pair of mugs in the above photo are my designs). A lot of folky patterns feature birds which is possibly why I'm always drawn to them. These are a few birdie items I found around my home!

I've picked up a few tea and coffee sets through the years from various charity shops and flee markets, here is my collection of cups and saucers from those sets. I really enjoy the surface patterns on these and I'm always automatically drawn to the china section in second hand shops, even though I'm desperately running out of room for more!
