This sweet little owl was made in the 1970s and was one of my grans collection, he has inspired a few designs for me. If you pop over to manilla made blog, there are some other lovely owls to see. Manilla made is a great design blog which is not only beautiful but Eco friendly too.

Ive been working on a stripy stone illustration today for istock. Here's a photo of some of my other stones. My Gran used to love polishing the stones she found, she had a special machine. We used to amble on the beach at Frinton collecting nice ones. Now I have her collection. Some of the most shiny ones here were polished by her!

Hooray Ive finally been approved as an Istock contributor!! Third time lucky eh! Here's one of the illustrations that was approved. I'm so pleased. Now I have to upload my 3 approved files and from then on should start building up my illustration portfolio! Its still not all plain sailing as each illustration I upload needs individual approval. But hey, my foots in the door!!

Ive been doing textile designs this week, for my agent in New york, boys wear things mainly and I'm using illustrator all the time for them now, and love it.
Last week I made this little butterfly brooch for my etsy shop. I think if I don't sell anything with etsy I should have a stall somewhere to sell my things locally. I will persevere more with it though, this is just early days for kitty stitch!
