As we have just taken possesion of a gorgeous early 60’s G Plan dining table and chairs I thought I should get some suitably lovely retro tablemats to keep it looking its best. It was impossible to find any I liked so I designed and printed these cork mats! I remembeer having cork tablemats when I was small so I thought they had a suitably retro feel.

Think I may have to do some for my shop!!???

I think it must be that  Spring is very definately  in the air because I find myself a bit obsessed with feathering my nest at the moment!

I have had these beautiful pictures on my computer for a while now.They are from Les Indiennes an American textile company started by Mary Mulcahy in 2002.Each fabric is beautifully hand printed with Ayurvedic dyes from plants,roots,the earth and rocks.

As well as these gorgeous earth tones there are ranges in reds,blacks,greys and indigo.

I still have a desire to do something with Paisleys and block printing.I have some old Indian printing blocks from my art college days and think some prints would be lovely on my bedroom wall and if successful a few to sell too.

If anyone knows where I can get these sorts of prints without needing to re-mortgage then I would love to know…my bed is crying out !!
