this has been another busy week of painting and pattern making and that is absolutely fine with me! i also have a few potential bits of good news to share, but can’t actually do so until things have been finalised. such a tease! still, potential good news is better than actual bad news, isn’t it.
a day late, but here it is!
i’ve been really busy this week working on something special. hopefully i will be able to share it with you next week. because of that i’ve not taken many pictures this week because, well, who wants to see loads of pictures of a computer screen? i should have taken some more progress photos but i kept forgetting. there are a couple on my instagram though if you’re interested. talking of instagram, i’ll be doing a quick giveaway on there on monday, so make sure you’re following to take part!
what have you been up to this week? fill me in.
i found this lovely bug sitting on the counter top in the kitchen. it’s colour was so nice, such a perfect green.
added yet another glass bottle to my ever growing collection.
a section of something i’ve been making for ‘the project’.
i’ve yet to have a proper read, but had a flick through ‘the complete guide to designing and printing fabrics‘ by laurie wisburn which i got yesterday. looks good!
and ava was beautiful as always.
this has been a very floral week! lots of looking at and drawing flowers. did you see the floral pattern i made last week?
on sunday i cut these flowers from the front ‘garden’. i’m not entirely sure what they are. does anybody know? they look like buddleja to me, but i’m not 100% sure on that. we used to have a huge purple buddleja bush in our back garden in the house i lived in as a child and the image of it always stuck in my head.
lots of (what i’ve always assumed are) bluebells suddenly sprung up in the back and front garden. i love the colour of them against the garage door.
talking of cats ..ava was being such a poser when i was in the back garden taking photos, so i just had to take a photo of her too. what a cutie!
this is my 100th post! woo! i’m quite proud of myself for sticking with this for as long as i have. i will most definitely continue to do so, as blogging has quickly taken a little piece of my heart. it’s fun, interesting and hard work, and i love it all. as well as that, it’s helping me improve my photography a bit, as well as giving me something to focus on and/or focus all my internet browsing over the years into one place.
if you follow me on instagram or twitter you may know i found this wonderful little tin of chocolates in marks & spencer! i never impulse buy, but i saw this and i just had to get it. so cute! love simple and graphic things like this.
i walked to ikea yesterday, and on the way i realised i’d never walked over the bridge in town that goes over the river taff. i’ve lived in cardiff 3 years now and somehow never been over it. not that that’s overly exciting, but the bridge you see walking over it is really nice! i liked the train too.
this wall of wool was in john lewis. the colours and the way it was stacked and took up a whole long wall made me really rather happy so i had to take a photo!
i found this fantastic book in a charity shop at the beginning of the week. everybody knows the saying ‘don’t judge a book by it’s cover’, but when you see this, how could you deduce anything other than it’s going to be an awesome book? i loved it so much i wrote a post about it too, which you can read here.
