I don't know how they found it, but another of my tea towels made an appearance in Apartment Therapy recently (in 'the kitchn' section). Thanks (again) to Michelle for seeing it and letting me know!
And thanks to Becky for the wee interview that recently appeared in Crafting A Green World.
Now back to holiday planning! Hope the week is fun for you and you're eating at least one hot cross bun a day like me - mmm :) It's bought ones I'm eating as I haven't made any this year, but did last year and the year before that. Gosh the years go by quickly!

OK, so it's been a while between posts. And that may or may not have something to do with the rain that I mentioned in my last post. Rain! No, it was more extreme freaky loud hail storm that is now causing quite a headache for insurers. Anyway, let's just say I've spent a lot of time mopping up and squeezing things out in the studio, along with moving my miraculously untouched books/electrical equipment out of the waterlogged region and into my now-full-of-stuff apartment. Yep, crafty things are vying for space and trying to squeeze Jed's bikes OUT of the living room.
Luckily I've got other exciting things to think about. Like Sweden. Did I mention that I'm going to Sweden? And Bosnia, as you do, with a stopover or two in London. In two weeks. For nearly two months. Eek! It's been forever since we've been on a proper holiday, so we figured now is as good as time as any. And heck, as I mentioned a while back, I surely do deserve a pair of Swedish clogs (or two), right? And it totally makes sense to go there to get them. Definitely.
So that's what's news here. Happy Monday!

And here are the coloured versions of my new 'Quotes' tea towel! Lots of umming and ahhing and mixing and testing took place before these colours were decided upon. Looove the muted feel of avocado green & grey combination (suits today's weather in Melbourne, along with the record floodings and massive hail) and the brightness of the 1950s blue/red combo.
Now time to don the gumboots and brave the weather - fun!

It seems like foreeever since I've had time/inspiration etc to do something new, but last week I just sat down with my trusty notebook and drew one of the ideas in my head. A day or so later, I made up a new screen for it and did some printing...and then a week later, I get around to taking a photo of it! So ta-da, here's my new tea towel, called Quotes. It kind of sums up what goes on in my head sometimes - a million ideas and thoughts flying around - I'm sure you know what I'm talking about.
This first run is a lovely contrasty white on natural linen (my favourite new thing! And they're extra large!!) I've just put it in my Etsy shop and soon there will be coloured varieties, yay. And if you look closely you can see my new logo, which I'm yet to actually use anywhere else but on my new packaging. I'll surely show it here sometime soon :)
PS. Also just put the new T Towel on Etsy - white on natural linen, mmm!

Finally, finally I visited Little Shop Of last week, so cute! Yes, it's wee tiny but it's so packed full of stuff that the tininess doesn't matter so much. I dropped off a bunch of my tea towels and fabric, chatted to Bec and then headed up the road for a delicious bagel, mmm! Morning well spent :)
Speaking of shopping, how much do I want to these shoes? Soo cute. And yes, I must have a thing for yellow shoes (and red shoes, and blue shoes...)
