Hope you are enjoying Christmas

I can show you my Tree of Life cushions now that presents have been opened and I wont ruin surprises by posting these photos.
The colours are bleached slightly by the flash and are more vivid in reality. I love these jewel colours and I am working on a collection of coordinating fabrics with this design as the main motif.

Christmas Labels for You - A Partridge in a Pear Tree

I thought you may like my 'Partridge in a Pear Tree' Christmas labels to print out for your Christmas presents. Save the image to file and print. Once printed just cut them out. Make a hole in a corner and thread through with some ribbon and tie to your gifts.

A Christmas Stocking

A stocking and two mini stockings made up from my cut and sew fabric, hung on our Christmas tree that we bought on from the garden.

A Christmas Fabric Delivery

I get so excited when my fabric samples arrive from Spoonflower. To have something tangible in your hands. To see how the colours and the scale work. I love it.

I can't show you everything as that would ruin the odd Christmas surprise for some of my nearest and dearest, but I have put a Christmas selection for sale in my Spoonflower shop already, including the cut and sew stocking designs, unfortunately you will have to be quick and live in the States to have any hope of getting my Christmas fabric in time for the big day. Moving house in October completely threw me with my preparations this year. Never mind, there is always next year.

Illustration Friday - Separated

I was doodling on the weekend papers, (how annoying!) and with Christmas looming I have a dearth of time to take it any further so I scanned my paper and as it turns out I quite like the texture the text gives the background. What do you think?

Festive Fabric

Some of my Christmas fabrics are for sale by the yard from my Spoonflower shop, although you can buy as little as a fat quarter. I reckon this reindeer design would make a brilliant table cloth.  My Partridge in a Pear Tree pattern is available in two colourways, as is my star pattern in the same two complementary colours and you could also make your own Christmas stockings from my easy cut and sew designs.

Rainbow Rag Book

My version of a babies rag book otherwise called a cloth book. This is designed to fit on a fat quarter of fabric then, following the instructions, easily cut and sewn together to make a babies first book.

The names of the colours were inspired by my littlest son who had his own way of describing colours. Daddy Brown was particularly apt, as Daddy being a farmer, was more often than not brown with mud!

I designed this a while ago, but this week the Spoonflower Contest is for a 'Cloth Baby Book' so I have entered 'Rainbow Rag'. If you like it maybe you could vote for me and if you click here you can see all the other entries as well.
