You'd know this is you're on my newly created mailing list, but just in case you missed it - Akzidenz fabric is now available by the meter at full width, on pre-order in my shop. Yardage is the only thing of mine that I don't print - due to the size and scale - and this run is due back from the printers very very soon! The first batch is red, with others possibly coming soonish.
And don't forget to join said mailing list, if you're not on it already and are interested in hearing about specials and other bits and pieces.

It's certainly winter time here in the Southern Hemisphere. The other day I went to my favourite orchard to buy some apples, my favourite fruit, before they disappear and this is what I saw - fog in the afternoon. It did clear not long after but brrr, it was cold.
To celebrate my apple love I've also been drawing them. This is something I've done a lot of in the past but have never been happy with the result. This time I made myself persist (something that I can be either really good at or really bad at) and then I stepped away and did something else. When I went back to my desk a little while later, with refreshed eyes, I changed a couple of things and then really quickly had my new tea towel design. Here's a sneak-peak of a corner of it, and its paper-based inception.

Oh, and there's a limited edition new colour of the Tree Towel - charcoal on natural. Love the natural linen and can't wait to do some more printing with it too.
