Forgive me for harping on about screen printing as much as I am.
It's partly because I am so loving it and partly as my own diary and record of what I am printing and where my journey is going.

My journey is moving at quite a pace and if I don't keep a note of it then, like anything, it's so easy to forget how it has been developing.

Today I went into the workshop for 4 hours - 4 whole fantastic productive hours. I produced so much stuff today and just about all of it I'm very excited about.
I experimented with some new card designs - more about those another day - and I also worked on a new stitch design, as well as trying out Framed Flowers in different colours, all with the idea of turning into napkins.
What do you reckon?

I have to say, I'm loving this green ink. It's so zingy and fresh. At the moment there isn't a place that is calling out for green in this house, but I'm racking my brains as to where it might fit in, because I sure do have to have me some.

Tonight I will mostly be sewing up some of each into napkins...can't wait to see how they will turn out.

I love the orange stitch print on beige material - if indeed it is a print not your original source material. Not surprised you are so in love with screen printing. x Gabs

I love that citrus green and use it all the time in my screenprinting so I'm 100% with you here, Karen. I think your designs are spectacular! Very envious of your speediest (again!) too :) Kx
