Stamping.....

I've been lacking the stamping mojo for some time now so this weekend I got myself  reacquainted with these guys...


I've been doodling around with different designs and decided now was the time to get them onto lino and printed. I wanted to stick with my usual bold and simple designs but wanted something a bit more then small individual blocks which I usually print together so I came up with a couple of one sheet designs which I think are quite cute...



I'm thinking these prints should go on some nice summer colours. 
Look out for them in the S&S Etsy shop soon!

Betty's bed.....

Betty loves to sleep.
Betty loves to sleep on our bed.
Betty loves to sleep on our bed when we're in it.
Betty loves to sleep on our bed when we're in it and take up most of the middle space.
Betty needs her own bed.....



I bought this fabric a while ago now intending to make a skirt, one of the many projects I haven't quite got around too yet. As it's black its perfect for Betty to park her furry behind on and seeing she is much in need of her own bed I thought she could have it :)

I also had a gorgeous length of fluffy black pom poms and thought they would adorn her thrown perfectly.


It seems she would agree....

Fix up look sharp.....

After picking up some new shelving from the organisation haven that is Ikea I've just about got all of my sewing, knitting and printing bits, bags and bobbins together and organised. 
I had numerous bags, boxes, a weird little shelf and a retro table all stacked up looking messy...


Being that my 'studio' is also the corner of our bedroom this little arrangement was annoying the hell out of me and the other half. An accumulation of bits that sort of kept building up.
No More! I braved ikea and then I braved an allen key along side a bottle of rose and now we have this...


Now everything has a place and it's all tucked away in nice bags and boxes. You might also notice a slight collection of a certain kitty....this is just the tip of a very large iceberg know as 'the kitty shrine'. So instead of one massive cat based area I've decided to slowly distribute this cute face around the whole flat....that way it's much harder to see how much of it there really is....


It feels so good to have this all organised, aaannnnddd relax! :)

Ikea....

This weekend I went on a much over due trip to the wonder that us Ikea. I've been dying to sort out all of my sewing, knitting and printing stuff for ages. We live in a small flat so my "studio" is the corner of our bedroom, boxes, bags and bundles of stuff slowly piling up and looking all untidy....eeeek!
So off I went in search if organisation....

I got totally caught up in the fabric section ogling gorgeous prints but managed to resist, I've got bags of fabric yet to be used at home!

I eventually found all the prices I needed to satisfy my need for order and tidiness and my evening ended up with a 'how to' guide in one and hand a glass if rosé in the other.....what a combo!
