moo cards

Look what came in the mail today! I ordered some cards from moo and love them. Good quality thick paper, colours exactly what I expected and I love the little details in the way everything was packaged. They're going to be presents, so I hope the wrong people are reading this!

advent wreath

The felt craft evening was fun and I'm looking forward to the next one in two weeks. This time I want to do a mini felt advent wreath and am working on the tutorial. I love the tiny candle flames.

more autumn berries

Some more finds from my walks around the neighbourhood.


I had fun arranging this on a piece of paper and then turned them into a fabric design: sketching, digitizing, arranging and coloring. Just love the process.

felt christmas bauble tutorial

I've had a lot of fun the last few weeks playing with felt and creating some felt ornaments in preparation for teaching a craft evening. For those who attended the evening - welcome! - here is a step by step pdf tutorial for the christmas bauble with photos. For anyone else - enjoy the tutorial and I'd love to see what you made.

tea towel calendar and a sale

Every year at around this time spoonflower has a contest for tea towel calendars. This year the contest was followed by a sale where you can buy two fat quarters for the price of one. The sale is on for one more day! The last two years I've made tea towel calendars (2013, 2014, which I need to update to 2015!). This year I used elements from my most recent collection. I love the details of the leaves :-)
The tea towels are scaled to fit on one fat quarter of linen cotton canvas, which has different dimensions than some of the other fabrics.

fabric swatches

A few days ago I got a package with fabric swatches (always so exciting :-)). Here is my new collection in two different colourways:


I've now set them for sale in my shop. I'd love to try this one as wallpaper. What do you think?

autumn inspiration

I go for a walk or two a day with my daughter around the block. Today I looked for berries and flowers in all the colours of the rainbow. I love all the little things you see when you take the time to look.
