Following on from yesterdays pattern I thought I'd give it a try with some stripes and spots in the background. The swirly bits or 'jelly tot' bits are inspired by one of my favourite textile designers Celia Birtwell, so have named it 'Celia'.

I have the heating on full blast and yet still and sitting at my desk shivering today! Although no snow here still unfortunately :-(
Anyway, just found a load of pattern drawings I must have done while working at the shiny shed a while ago, quite excited as I now have a whole new lot of things to try out. Incidently the shiny shed will be back! There's a fundraiser coming up on Thursday - please go to:
for more details about this exciting new art centre!

Just got in from a lovely Vintage Tea Dance (organised at Anna @ www.bettyblueeyesvintage.com). Had such a lovely time filled with lots of tiny cucumber sandwiches, pretty cakes and plenty of tea. The only down side was that my dancing has a lot to be desired! Me and Ian just about managed to attempt the 'Lambeth Walk' without too many sore toes! Today my patterns were inspired by the dance - I was thinking of all things 1940's and vintage and was thinking bunting, I might tried some hand drawn varieties in the next few days.

These are all reworked from the 'Lucienne' design collection I did a while ago for the Chelmsford Arts Trail. I'm not usually one for a crisp white background, but I think it works quite well here with the fluttering butterflies. Really like the cut out shape with pattern inside, I might just try some more...........

I've had lovely day at Balckthorpe Barn in Suffolk seeing my mum's stand at the show. Lots of lovely stalls, I particularly loved seeing Penny Bhadresa's lino prints, this one was my favourite:
I just love the colours and shapes used. To see more of her work please go to: http://www.pennybhadresa.co.uk/
After a bit of a desk tidy up, am now feeling in the mood for a few more stationary patterns.
