I will be selling all of my printed t-shirts at 50% off this weekend at the Halifax Crafters market. That's just $18 for a lovely hand printed t-shirt! Pretty good deal, n'est-ce pas?

Stop by my table early to find one in your size!

These designs and more available!

on the print table.

I've been going a little crazy working on this piece hoping to have it finished in time to show at the upcoming halifax crafters market. Here's a little sneaky peak.

I've been inspired by the local community suppers that are everywhere in Lunenburg County. I decided that a souvenir tablecloth was the perfect fit.

This piece took around 11 hours to print and is comprised of 16 two-colour prints. The next time I realize that I'm working on a design that needs 8 separate screens I'm either going to have to talk myself out of it or go and buy some seriously bigger screens!

new machine

Over the christmas holidays I packed this heavy duty wonder in my suitcase and brought it back with me from Ontario. It was my Nana's machine and it still runs beautifully. I don't think you can ever go wrong with a husqvarna.

the countdown is ON!

Well, it's that time again. Just under a month til the next halifax crafters show and I'm back in the studio cracking the whip. I'm continually inspired by the lovely community that surrounds me and this means a whole ton of new design ideas are pouring out of me. Fingers crossed I can get them onto fabric in time for the show!

I'm starting with the little things. Happy stacks of happy hearts ready to be sewn.

More stacking; my new studio 'tidying' method. The studio is tidy-ish for now. Hopefully I can keep it that way.
