I thought it would be nice to let you know what I have been up to in the last few days. As they say variety is the spice of life so stepping away from my home studio into my dear friend Nancey's lovely sunny studio has been both a treat and a whole lot of fun!
Next week sees the grand unveiling of 10 large mosaic features that we have created to be installed in the foot path in our little village Eastbourne.
They all depict New Zealand native birds. It's been a huge project that we have been working on in between other projects.
Just when we thought we had completed the project we where asked if we would like to design and make one more for the spot where a little plinth talking about them would be erected.
I designed a 2 meter wide half round showing our beautiful native Pohutukawa flowers,
here it is nearly finished.
I'll show you the rest soon!

This is my test design which I will be delighted to make available very soon, it features our native Piwakawaka or Fantail,
I've put it around my neck and I don't think I'll ever take it off!
Oh yes! I am THRILLED to say I have been featured on Etsy! what a fantastic week!

Summer is slowly coming to an end for us here in New Zealand.
It's been so lovely but there's a sudden chill in the air even thought the sun's still shining.
The nice thing about being connected to the wide world is that I am seeing how delighted everyone in the northern hemisphere is about the first signs of spring. Somehow it's worn off on me and has inspired these 2 new very springy prints!
I have just seen that I have made my 1000th sale in my Etsy shop! To celebrate, I am taking 20% of everything from the 23rd of March (this Monday) till the 31st of March.
Thank's so much for making my little shop such a success!
I couldn't have done it without you!

I must say, I gasped when I received the fabric to make these.
The colour and detail are amazing! The feel and quality of the fabric is so sumptuous!
I love the way a scarf gives me an instant lift, you'll seldom see me without one.
Perfect for the changing season.
They are available now in my Etsy shop!
Oh yes, aren't my models beautiful, can you believe these photos havn't been retouched.
They are my good friend Nancy's girls, her son's friend and my darling sister.
