Dutch Houses in Canada

A while ago a lovely customer in Canada asked if I could print the Dutch Houses for her in a larger size than a fat quarter, as she wanted to frame it and hang it on the wall. Of course I was happy to do that, and last week she sent me this photo. Doesn’t it look great?

On a roll

My kids’ school, Wooloowin State School in Brisbane’s inner north, has its annual fete on Sunday 15 September (which coincidentally is also my youngest son’s 7th birthday). They asked if I would like to have a stall at the fete and of course I said yes! I have been busy making small items for the fete and am especially enjoying making pencil rolls.

Pencil rolls
I went through my fairly extensive fabric stash looking for fabrics that would make a nice pencil roll and found quite a few!

I have been making some more stuff for the fete – will show it in the next few days.

Handprinted fabric “Dutch Houses”

A while ago I participated in a handprinted fabric swap organised by Leslie Keating. I made a Dutch Houses stamp to print my fabrics – you can read about the process here on my textile blog. I enjoyed the process very much and the comments about the fabric were very positive, so I decided to make some more and add it to my Etsy shop.

Yesterday I printed three fat quarters – black, gold and copper on organic white cotton. You can find them here.

They would be great to use in homewares, bags, quilts… If you would like to have this design printed in a certain colour combination send me a message and I do my best.

Getting ready for Inspired

This Sunday, the 25th of November, Blue Jacaranda will be at Inspired, a Shopping and Fundraising Event created by Brisbane artist Kylie Farrelly. This week I have been busy making stock, such as this Chalk Cloth Bunting. The backside is made from laminated fabric, so it can be used indoors and outdoors.

This Oilcloth Bunting is also very suitable for garden parties:

Buntings look so good like this:

Yesterday I did a big screen printing session.

Today I made the prints into Art Cards, ACEO and stretched them in hoops:



Inspired is at 30 Florence Street, Teneriffe (Brisbane) from 3 until 6pm.

Take care,
Linda
