garden creatures

Here are 2 more pages from my diary... it's what I wrote about the other day with the cheeky deer and the lovely woodpecker!

The colours of the trees at the moment are beautiful, what an amazing season Autumn is! I saw a clearing in a forest yesterday which got me thinking of 'The Lorax' by Dr. Suess a great book of it's time! I must find it out on Amazon and get it...

Looking forward to a purchase arriving which I made with Skinny Laminx, I'm getting ready for Christmas presents! Exciting stuff love her prints...


on the beach

This is a picture from my sketchbook, it's me and Christian on the beach on Fanø, where we went for a long weekend 2 weeks ago. It's a lovely small island off the west coast of Denmark. The beach you can drive on for miles, there are even bus stops! There were many people looking for amber, we didn't bother, it was so cold we got out of the car for about 5 minutes and drove off again! I forgot I enjoy sketching, I'm not brilliant but it's fun so I've decided to do more of it!


nature nerding

here is a picture of my studio space, this is where I sit at the sewing machine and look out over our pond in the garden. It's lovely and most inspiring. I got really excited this morning, as I was looking out of the window at a jay hopping around I got the binoculars out(i know bird spotter) but then I saw a woodpecker on the tree in front of the house, had to phone Christian straight away, we're both nature nerds! and last night as Christian came home from work he stopped down our drive and rang me, we had 6 roe deer in our garden, 2 had hopped up in our veggie high bed, cheeky beetroot nibblers!

thanks for your comments about my pencil case!



I made this pencil case yesterday, it's a start to my new series of products which I want to get on Etsy soon.
So I thought first I'll make a couple of pencil cases and do some printing. I bought these letters from e-bay ages ago and now I'm finally using them! I want to linocut the squirrel too so I'm working on that today see if I prefer applique or print.
this is so much fun!
I even forgot to have a sleep yesterday afternoon I was so excited!
I sleep normally as I am pregnant and get tired quick, but this gives me energy...
