It's not snowing here!



Unlike the rest of the country it's not snowing here. We have had too much heavy rain and it's cold but spring is just about springing. So we have been out in the sodden garden in wellies and gloves building some structures.

I just about managed a willow bower that will hopefully root and create a shady place to sip a gin and tonic on a warm summer evening (I feel I am being rather optimistic!), although I think it will also be a great den for the smallest of my tribe.........and Ed has built some impressive post and wire supports ready to espalier pear and fruit trees down the side of the front garden which is a bit of a sun trap.

Little Friendly Monsters


These little guys all have their own personalities with likes and dislikes. For instance Jiggle loves to dance and Gurgle is very good at swimming. They aren't for sale yet but you can see how the collection called 'Party Monsters' is coming together here at Spoonflower

This is the start of a whole new collection, to include wallpaper and decals as well as fabric. Each design fits an 8 inch swatch, the smallest amount available, and suitable for anything from quilting to applique patches, designs repeating for larger amounts to make anything for the monster friendly.

This is all still work in progress. For instance there are three little monsters who at the moment are destined to be rejected. Which ones do you like or think ought to disappear?
