Woodland Marching Band

 I was so thrilled to come third in the Marching Band contest last week. Thanks to Spoonflower for these great photos and a big thank you to everyone that voted. You can now find the top ten for sale at Spoonflower.

Below are a few preliminary sketches I did for the design.

The Spoonchallenge

Last month I participated in the Spoonchallenge, a drawing a day prompt from Spoonflower which was then shared on social media. I did enjoy it and also enjoyed discovering instagram. I didn't complete the last few drawings until just after the end of the challenge but got there in the end. Hopefully one day I might make a few of these drawings into fabric designs.

Fabulous Finds

Found some great things at the market and from our visit to Mannum this weekend.
 These were only $2 each.

There is a very nice lady with a stall at the market that knows I love retro and the colour orange, she had these two plates. My mum actually remembers making something like this in the 1960's when she was about 17.

The nice lady also had this table cloth (put aside for me I think) that I admired on her table a few months back.

This magazine from 1969 was in one of the collectable shops at Mannum. I love some of the patterns especially this pig.

Also from Mannum this cool retro fabric.

Mannum Falls

We visited the Mannum Falls again this weekend, it was a beautiful day. Unfortunately we didn't get to see the very top section, I hope we can come back again soon before it is warm enough for the snakes to come out.

The Local Wildlife

A visitor to our garden this week.

It is not normal to find an echidna in your garden although they do live in the bush land behind the school and at the top of our street. Even if you are walking through the bush they are not often visible. This little fellow was so adorable and I hope we might see him again one day.
