January already.

Somehow Christmas and New year came and went and slowly we creep through January with day after day of grey skies.
Although I post irregularly hereI try to post over on IG everyday so you catch up with me over there much more often! So please come and visit.

A couple more.....

This week I added a three more designs to my tea towel collection. You can find them over at my shop on Etsy-oneappledesigns

Tea Towels

Somehow my blog is always the last one to be updated.
Anyway I finally got around to having a small print run of tea towels printed and they are now in my Etsy Shop, more designs will also be coming in the following weeks. Its always exciting to have some real life products in my hands rather then always seeing images on my screen.

Birdies

From all my sketchbook birds from the last couple of weeks, I developed a pattern. I'm going to create some greeting cards to go with it, as somehow I thought it may make a good gift wrap.


I also started to put together another one that involves dried seed heads and warbler type birds.

Birds

I recently rediscover my Old Hamyln Guide to British and European Birds from my childhood and have set about making a few studies in my sketchbook of various beautiful specimens.

September

The start of a new month and new school years for my sons. Looking forward now to getting back into a routine and getting stuck back into work again.

Here is a page from my sketchbook from last week that I created into a pattern. Thinking of making it into a tea towel.

Catching up!

Its been a while and my poor blog is a little neglected but with all the social media things it is very hard to keep them all ticking over.
This year we were away for three week and I tried to keep a snipping sketchbook for as much of the time as it was possible.
Anyone who is over on IG will of seen most of them, but for the folks that haven't here are a few of the images that I snipped!
