I Love Gingerbread

First of all I want to say a big Thank You! to everyone who took the time to scroll through all the wonderful entries for the recent Gingerbread Design Challenge on Spoonflower to vote. I am pleased to announce that my design 'I Love Gingerbread' was placed in the Top 10, coming 7th out of 368 entries! 

This design is now available for sale on my fabric shop 
I am really pleased with the quality of the printed fabric and it looks great!

Secondly, it has been such a busy year for me between travel, family and work I have a lot of things to write about and catch up with on my blog so I will be posting updates over the next few weeks before this year ends. 

Happy 4th July, Celebrate Freedom

I am sitting here in my studio taking a short break from working on some new illustrations and designs when I remembered that it was the 4th of July - American Independence Day -  the anniversary of the publication of the declaration of independence from Great Britain in 1776 and the birth of the United States of America as an independent nation.

A few days ago I designed and created this floral illustration in red, white and blue for The 4th July and have named it 'Freedom Flowers' and it would also be a great piece of art for Australia Day since we have the same flag colours :)    

Tulip Time Tea Towels

This evening I will be back at my sewing machine hemming my Tulip Time Tea Towels, so I am hoping for a cooler night unlike last week where here in Sydney we had temperatures in the mid 30 degrees Celsius up until 3am! Here is a little preview look at one of the yellow and pink tea towels. I have 4 different colour choices in this collection.
