Haverford fabric design

          I had an idea when I was about six that I wanted to design wallpaper when I grew up. Then last summer I got completely obsessed with drawing patterns and one step closer to my six year old ambition thanks to the wonders of Spoonflower, where you can upload your design, have it printed onto a range of really nice cotton and organic fabrics, or decals or wallpaper!!!  
I love it!

The Triple-Bill.

It's been quite, damp, dark and cold round here for some time,  but I have been secretly busy,  drawing and planning - usually with the duvet and hot water bottle close by.
Anyway (with a big Bagpuss style yawn) it seems that all that winter malarky is over  - there are buds on the trees crocuses in the garden and even sunshine! And now I can reveal some of what I've been making during the long hibernation.
Inspiration came from a set of six shot glasses I bought from the charity shop - bargain!

I love and admire this deer sooo much, I may well have accidently on purpose, taken his stylish antlers for my own birds, but in homage to him and his rare beauty I have elevated them to museum status by arranging them on plinths. Here - The Triple-Bill.

    Also available in bell jars.

    And as brooches.

  Illustrations and brooches will be available in my Esty shop soon.

COMING SOON! i.e. next week - the exciting launch of my re-made website with discounts and fanfares and everything! Don't miss it!
