Wallpaper Tile

Hi everyone. Where have I been?!  Well I am in London but I did not visit the queen!  I'm so sorry, that was the lamest thing ever. (blogging at 1.28am isn't the best idea..)

Anyway I've been doing a million things at once as usual.  The last few days I've been working on some designs for Spoonflower fabric!  It's quite exciting and I can't quite stop myself.  If it didn't cost $5.00 per design to get a sample to approve it for sale I'd have hundreds of patterns up for sale already!  So somewhat restrained I have designed a few and ordered a sample of just one, when it arrives I will approve it for sale and then work on some more.  You can check out the patterns I've done so far here.  Let me know if you really love (and want to buy) any of them and I'll get approval samples for those too so they can be purchased.

The next design I'm working on is a stationary doodle I did this evening.  In testing it's tile-ability I set it as my desktop wallpaper and it looked great!  So I thought I'd give it to you lovely readers to use as your own desktop.  (click the image then right click and save as..but you know that...)

Please don't reuse it on your own site without permission.  For personal use only.

Also, and definitely LOADS more exciting is that I have an illustration in the new issue of FRANKIE magazine!  Weeee!  So exciting.  It's not a tiny illustration either, it's the big poster in the middle!  La-de-da.   I've known it was happening for aaaages, I'm talking months and months and months but I tried not to get too excited about it until it was actually printed.  I haven't seen it in person yet, I'm waiting for it to arrive from Australia and with the 45 bank holidays here this month it might take a little longer than normal!  I'll be sure to share it with you when it arrives!

The joys of cat sitting

Here's a few snippets from my weekend.  The weather was obscenely nice.  I made some really reaaally nice banana bread.  My peas are kicking arse, time to plant them out in to their own pots!

Another quick evening illo from a sketch. I really want this jumper. I know that's silly because it doesn't exist, plus it's getting warmer.

Weekend Illos

Here's a couple of quick illustrations I did on the weekend.

I've been thinking about a trip to Paris lately.  I decided to pull out my photos from the last time I was there for your viewing pleasure!

Apartment Garden!

We live in a tiny apartment, we definitely don't have a garden or even a balcony.  I usually keep my plants on the end of our table but today my husboyfriend  (thanks Able & Game for that term!) "built" me this shelf to put all my plants on!  When I say built I mean he put a spare shelf we had on top of two really tall speakers.  It's the perfect spot, as we come into spring and eventually summer this spot gets the most sun in the apartment, it's in direct sunlight almost all afternoon.  

Today I planted a bunch of new seeds, some peas, tomatos and pak choy.  I didn't have much luck with tomatos last year, they grew tall but bore no fruit, hoping for better luck this year.  Also hoping to get some life out of the cactus seeds I bought at the Lambeth county fair last year.  One of my tulips has popped up very quickly and has opened wider that I've ever seen a tulip open, it's kinda weird looking!  I'm curious to see if the other one will do the same.  

I'll keep you posted on all these plants, as long as they don't promptly die!

In other news we are going to be cat sitting for a few months, starting tonight!  I'm pretty excited to meet this cat.  I haven't had a pet as an adult so it's going to be great to have another creature in the flat!  Photos forthcoming obviously!
