What a wonderful giveaway! Love those tea towels, I'm already picturing them in my kitchen, and the hankie, well I think it should be framed and the soap...I love lavender!

In any case I love following your blog. I always love seeing a glimpse into the studio and what you are creating, pictures of where you live, new shops to explore and featured artists. Basically, your blog is perfect just as it is!

Just Martha said...

Hi Thea I love your blog because you do such beautiful work, are sooooo very busy and add a sprinkle of your non-work life too. Makes for very interesting reading. I love your simple patterns - so effective

one little acorn said...

I often drop by to see what you are up to... the latest designs.
Love your work
Wish I could make it to your open studio, but Brisbane is just a little too far for a day trip!

sue said...

Oh well I think you know why I come Thea - all that eye candy - plus I appreciate your frankness with regard to owning and operating a small business. You keep it real. Also it has been a pleasure to see your business go from strength to strength - quite an inspiration to all those 'creatives' out there who would love to chuck in their 'day job'!

creativecontroller said...

Count me in the draw.
I was so looking forward to your open day, now I have to work. I am very disappointed. I am also hoping that I might get to one of your printing days too. I will have to be quicker next time!!

NATURAL MODERN INTERIORS said...

Hi Thea, as you know I am new to blogging and wished that I got into this a long time ago. I love your individual patterns and that you are making healthy, toxic-free and organic products. My favorite items would be the natural linen cushions, especially the peacock party design, which would sit very well in my home. I am also looking forward to when you release the beautiful back packs and bags. Have a fantastic day with your open studio. Have fun, Lisa

chris hobel said...

So many reasons why I follow your blog, I love screen printing and have never been able to get back to it after learning the basics, I support Aussie Craft, Brissy Craft and I used to live at Gumdale. Who knows where that is? and I love your initiative and naturally brilliant designs

Kerry said...

Hi Thea. I read your blog because your designs are beautiful, you share, and you inspire. And your online store is great, service fantastic and the product superb! And because I think you're likely to be a really nice person :)

Kerri said...

I love your blog because your fabrics are divine, you are a breath of fresh air - and you're a Brissie girl too! Will do my very best to make it to your open day - how exciting. K xx

Anna Bartlett said...

Hi Thea

I like to read about people on your blog, hear about your business experiences and see interesting fabric combinations.

Please count me in for your giveaway (altho if I win, you can redraw for the hanky!)

Galuh said...

Hi Thea,
I'm Galuh from Indonesia. Actually this is the first time I visit your blog and I knew it from other blog (print-specs blog). Well, at first i just want to know how to sew then i want to know how to make printed fabric. I see you have beautiful printed fabrics. Also you offer giveaway too (which make myself hoping to be the winner). Well, I hope I can see more beautiful fabrics and new ideas on your blog.

Ok, thanks

Helen said...

from Auckland. An inspiring blog, so many lovely fabrics and beautiful items. Fantastic links and so much more....

ElsieMay said...

I like that the designs are so simple and so elegant - they are timeless that makes them so gorgeous. I come to have a bit of a dribble over new things and look over the old stuff. And then sit and plan which ones to buy when I get better at chair recovering. Sometimes its nice to just take a look at something other than 20 spreadsheets that all need to be fixed up - I go look at your blog as a treat then get grudgingly get back to work knowing there is something pretty to look at again later.

Thanks!

Missymaomao said...

I love your blog because I love your fabric and I want to know all about the creative designer behind them. I also like to know what you are looking at in great big world of design because it's likely that I would be interested in the same things.

Your blog puts personality with the product and you have to be proud of that.

I'm a newcomer to your blog and the world of blogland but found your work arty, fresh and very creative. I especially love reading about talented women making a living from something they love doing - especially you. Very inspirational for someone like me who is wondering where her art journey is heading. Thanks.

Thea, I have been a fan of your blog since I found you via BYW. I love that you post so regularly (something I fail to do :)) and I love hearing about your business adventures.Secretly I would love to print my own fabrics but that's not in the cards for me right now so I have to live through you!
Hope you brought your mittens to Melbourne ... brrrr....

I love your fabrics (and teatowels!). I just need to find a reason to purchase them... new house on the way so hopefully I will find some inspiration there.

It is great to read a different angle on life. Inspiration for creativity!

I love your blog because it is inspirational, beautiful and good for the planet. Your workshops are fantastic too - the best way to spend a Saturday.

Gifts of Serendipity said...

Thea, I've been following you ever since I began in June and I love to read about what you're up to, both in your own work but also in the discovery of other clever artisans.

I went to 'Finders Keepers' at Peregian on the weekend and it was a big thrill to see your cushions and bags.

x Felicity

Tania said...

GAH! That giveaway is too much gorgeous to resist an entry! I pop by because I reckon you're damned funky, have an excellent eye, fabulous taste. Even more appreciated, you are generous with your knowledge. Also I'm STILL waiting for Melbourne screenprinting courses (she types (again), hintfully)...

Irene ~ RE~VINTAGED said...

You have such cool fabric! Why have I not seen it before. Must be blogging around with my eyes closed.......

Karen Brock said...

Hello Thea!
I read your blog because I work alone and it is comforting to know there are other creatives out there experiencing similar challenges. I love to read about your new stockists....hooray! and your thoughts on which colour to introduce for a new design. I love that you print a lot onto sustainable fibres like hemp and organic cotton.
