Out of the recent: “I want to paint pudgy birds in succulents because green and pink” paintings, this is probably my favourite. 

…These little guys are just begging me to make them out of clay and paint them.

Digital test and final outcome. I needed (still need!) to work on my colours.

Thank you for the recent love on this painting, guys.

Katazome-shi, this pattern is one of my favourites.

Tove and Beatrix

After a week in the Lake District and learning a lot about Beatrix Potter I had no idea of, I’m reading Boel Westin’s biography of Tove Jansson on the drive home.

I already have a sneaking sense these are two amazing women I’m going to be growing heaps of admiration for.

Reblog for the evening crowd!

Here is a first peek at Acorn Trail, my newest textile collection with Birch Fabrics!

The prints feature florals, bugs, some animal pals you might remember from the Fort Firefly collection, and their happy forest mom Penny, with various designs available in poplin, canvas, knit, and voile. There is even a cut and sew panel so you can make your own softies of some of the characters!

The collection will be out in August, and you can preorder through Fabricworm.com. Photography by Birch Fabrics.

I want to make books out of ALL of them!

( Incidentally, I have 12 + books to make for a commission and an exciting proposal for a lovely shop in town. )
