This Monday has been a mixed bag of emotions. We received some bad news today but we are going to send out good vibes instead of letting it get us down.
We also spent some time in the studio trying out new designs. See below
Then headed home to cook some feel good food. A prawn and pea risotto with fresh mint and basil. Yum! I sort of followed this recipe.
I hope you all had a wonderful Monday.
Yay for Friday!
I tried a new colour combo today – Blue on Hot Pink. Way back when I wanted to try this colour combo but never did. I think it works.
Then I spent some time with my sewing machine but now its knock off time. Have a good weekend people they only come around once a week.
We had a lovely long weekend here despite the horrible weather. We had a productive day at print club, had an amazing roast dinner with a friend and her family and then did nothing at all on Monday. In fact someone who shall remain nameless didn’t even get out of their pjs!
Here is what D printed. He also printed this two colour print on the most amazing grey coloured T in both men and women sizes. Cant wait to get this T uploaded to our shop.
And here is what I printed.
This DIY stencil cushion cover from Wit & Whistle is the perfect way to use your favourite song lyrics or phrases.
Today I want to call on you to share the love and in return I will give you a little love back. Now before this gets weird let me tell you what I mean.

The days seem to be getting away from me lately. I think it might have something to do with my new sewing machine. Over the weekend I made this cushion cover using our new pattern – Wobbly drop (I really need to come up with a better name). The ink we used is the most stunning grey and almost looks silver in certain light.
I am so in love with this new cushion that I had to decorate a whole room around it using furniture from Coco Republic and a painting from A Little Painter.
Katie from Paperfashion is certainly not afraid of using bright colours in her home. She is also very resourceful – see the pink pattern in the large frame? Its a Florence Broadhurst pattern featured on Kate Spade’s tissue paper! It is one of my favourite patterns.
The sun is out after what feels like a years worth of rain in just two days. Man when it rains in Australia it rains!
Anyway its Friday evening and we have blue skies and I am super happy with the colour combos I tried out today.
I am drooling over this wall hanging and ottoman today.
The pattern, Pythagoras was designed by Sven Markelius in 1952.

The first rule of print club is …
Oh damn it I think I just broke the first rule of Print Club.
On Saturday D and I went to Print Club at Arcade Screen Printing. It was lots of fun printing with a few other screen printers even if it was a little chaotic at times.
Here is what D managed to print.
