Just took a night-time kitchen table photo of my new tea towel, using my phone camera. And it doesn't look too bad, all things considered. But what is it? More will be revealed when it's daylight and I can get a better photo. For now, this is all I gots.

Yay, I have just got more freshly printed yardage back from the lovely Lara & Teegs & Lou (aka Ink & Spindle). The restocking of my Etsy shop was keenly noted by the lovely Penny (aka @pocketcarnival), so I figured it was worth mentioning here.
While I print smaller items myself, all the large-scale stuff is printed with Ink & Spindle. They do an amazing job and are so helpful (read: patient) with me when I'm agonising over colours and shades. This batch is a reprint - of the previously sold out Red Akzidenz and Red Polka Dots, along with a tweaked Teal Akzidenz and Teal Polka Dots (slightly darker shade from the original colour and I love it).
And it took me a while to notice, but the yarn colours I picked to knit with lately are pretty much the same as the colours I've printed my yardage in (except grey, which would look great in a bootie...I'll have to get onto that!) - freaky.

It feels like it's been forever since I've posted, but even longer since I've updated the look of this here blog. So when I had some spare time this morning I did some changing and rearranging. It's kind of plain, but I'm a plain kind of girl and think I like it.
And the reason I've been quiet? I've been busy preparing for a wee (no, massive) market that's coming up soon. Starting to freak out a bit actually, as it's over two days and will, actually, be massive. But fun, as it seems so many great making folk are going to be there too - see here. Anway, below is a sneak-peak of one new thing from me that will be there - 'Trees' Cushions.

A weekend away to celebrate an anniversary, involving lots of nice food (above is part of the edible garden at Elk Horn Roadhouse) and pretty views of the sea in winter. The crazy midnight wind on a lonesome hilltop was not so great, but the rest was. Hope your weekend was lovely too (and didn't involve flooding or earthquakes).
