Looks like I missed a whole lot of cool stuff while I was away: Miranda-Jane's arrival at sakura snow's new home (the postal system - it works!), the opening of Paperiaarre's fabulous Etsy shop, skinny laminx's makeover... and I'm sure a whole lot more I haven't had time to catch up on yet.
I've been racking my brains trying to think what I could use to show the scale of my prints easily in photos - matchboxes are sort of standard, but not always very stylish. Then it hit me: teacups! Pretty much the same size the world over, and pretty much... well, pretty. I can indulge my appetite for crockery I'm too scared to use, but must have, all in the name of craft. Not sure how well it will go down in my kitchen ("Sorry, dear, we can't keep the plates in the kitchen anymore, I need all the cupboard space to store props.")
But I've started listing pieces of block printed fabric in my shop, so look forward to a dazzling array of teacups, all serving a very practical purpose.
