Time for tea...
After making my bird tablecloth I was inpired to carry on and try out some different images. Table cloths always remind me of afternoon tea and so I set to creating time for tea.....teapots, cups and saucers and here is the final piece with added charm of cup cakes.


I've been very busy painting silk scarves this weekend. I painted some for Christmas presents and they were very successful. I was asked to create two new designs for a colleague at work. So we have 'pansies' and 'vintage rose'. Simple yet striking. Lets hope she likes them and I have a happy customer!!

I thought I'd better add some photos of my on going work. I'm really into birds at the moment and adding them to soft furnishings. I was inspired by Cath Kidston's Sew. Its a great book and has nice ideas and handy templates. I used an old vintage table cloth given to me by my Mum and added a few birds and hearts cut from vintage fabrics I have collected. It only took just over an hour and looks great in our dining/lounge. I also used this idea to decorate a few photo boards I had hanging in the spare room, I love the rose print which is from Laura Ashley. I am sure I will be adding to my bird collection in the next few weeks.
