Who doesn’t need cards?  Everyone needs cards!  And there’s something for everyone in my new occasion cards which range from ‘Thanks ever so much’, ‘Happily ever after’ and ‘Bravo’ to ‘What Fun’, ‘Roarrrr’ and ‘Wowzers’.  You’re bound to find something that’s perfect…

After a day spent drawing, cutting, stretching, sticking, mixing, scraping, drying, washing and drying again – these aren’t the screen prints I planned to show you at all.  The designs I’m working on are quite complicated so I thought I’d do a trial run with a simple design just to check the colours and transparency of my new inks.  Not only are they not the designs I’ve been working on, but they didn’t turn out how I expected.  But that’s the lovely thing about hand printing, you never quite know what you’re going to get, and I think these little birdies are gorgeous, even though they’re not quite what I had in mind…

I’m really excited by these!  I’ve been working on them for ages to get them just right and here they are at last…

They’re going to be available from www.dorothyandtheodore.com, a lovely website selling gorgeous things for your home – check them out

Snap them up for Christmas!  My new hand-pulled ‘Grasses’ Screen Print is available now to buy from my shop for just £18.  It comes in a limited edition of just ten so get them while you can.

I do love being productive.  Here’s the gorgeous patchwork cot quilt I’ve just finished, and the new screen prints I’ve been working on.  They’re so fun!
