Now that the weather is warming up and I have moved into my own (shared) place, I have been going out for more walks around my neighbourhood. There are so many cute houses and streets, and so many colours with Spring on its way. So the other day I took my camera out with me!

When I moved into our new flat a few weeks ago I had to buy my first ever mattress! So I also needed new sheets, and since I had been researching and being inspired by a lot of fabric dyeing I decided to dye my own sheets. A whole 8 metre length of cotton to sew into duvet covers, plus 6 pillowcases! I used Procion MX dyes and experimented with a range of dyeing techniques - painting, spraying, dip-dyeing and space dyeing. And now I have the most colourful bed ever, it's great!

It's Spring! In October, it feels so weird, but it means Summer is on its way, which I am pretty excited about! So I have been filling my sketchbook with ice-creams lately, and created a screen print design which I printed onto some pillowcases and a couple of tees!
