Welcome 'Mandy' - by Jane Foster

Have been inventing some new characters that will be shown soon - this here is 'Mandy' on a linen purse I made during the Christmas holidays. She's a screen print design.

Sewing room - shelves, shelves, shelves

Our spare room is now turning into a sewing room (to get all the sewing out of my study so the computer doesn't get full of lint and dust from al the fabric cutting) - we've ripped the carpet up, painted the floor white and am gradually awaiting Ikea flat pack items to transform the room. Some shelves have arrived for some cushions (I've quite a large collection that I alternate around the home) and we've put some mini 70s Dutch ones up too. Will add more photos as the space progresses.

Thank you to Kate Burt over at her lovely blog 'Your home is lovely' for recommending this super book a few days ago. I ordered it straight away as I love 60's architecture and peeping into the homes so see how people live in it!

Screen prints from my earlier days - Jane Foster

I normally sort through my socks drawer this time of year but yesterday I decided to tackle the mammoth task of sorting through 24 drawers of old and recent screen prints from the past 6 years. I rediscovered many that I'd completely forgot about so have decided to gradually add some more to my site. These prints date from 2007 - 2009 and go back to the days before I had a proper website.
Here are a few from the list I shall be adding - the older ones are being sold at a reduced price.

*Today is also the day I properly start on my first book so I think yesterday was a cathartic experience!

Mini flower card

I love the odd little pieces of art my four year old daughter hands me out of the blue - this one has a large round silver sequin in the middle that looks like a mirror.
