Pinteresting

I haven't spent much time on Pinterest to date but am starting to add to two boards in particular - Favourite Aussie (and some NZ) Fabric Screenprinters and Botanically Inspired (Australian Flora of course). You might like to take a look for inspiration here.

I think I'll also start a board on fabric screenprinters from other parts of the world

Actually this post is just an excuse to show some photos of a beee...autiful eucalpt now flowering in the garden. It is Eucalyptus phoenicea - from northern Australia - the Kimberleys and north Northern Territory so a bit of an oddity in this south east Queensland garden.

A Change From White and Red

The most popular colour for my prints is white, closely followed by red so that's what I mainly do. But every so often - like now - I feel like I need some more colour around me and here's the result of my latest printing sessions.
I love the green.
These tea towels are heading for the Botanique Bazaar at the Mt Cootha Botanic Gardens which is coming up again in July (16 - 20), along with lots of white and red towels as well.

After A Bit of Tweeking....

A bit more design improvement and I tried the print on unbleached linen
