Go green

Last week I did some illustrations for a corporate responsibility poster for Turner Broadcasting, that is currently up in their lobby at Turner House, Great Marlborough Street.

Its a really long poster!

Its made up of several sections starting with these robots...

Then this little bird.  The post its are real post its stuck on.

Next there is this elephant which you may notice was inspired by the soft toy I have for sale in my Etsy shop...

And lastly a little monkey!

Little Red down under

If anyone happens to be in Melbourne, Australia this week may I recommend that you visit the we heart books stand at the Magnolia Square market to pick up one of my Little Red Riding Hood books!

They only have a small number so don't delay!

A mile stone...

It may not seem like much, but the fact that I can even look at these photos is an indicator of how much better I feel now I have stopped throwing up.

I took them a couple of days before I ended up in hospital with hyperemesis and I was already feeling quite rough.  We were having our nephew and nieces round for tea before going to the panto so I forced myself to bake these cupcakes even though to me they looked absolutely revolting!

For some reason they often came to mind while I was being sick so for months I have avoided looking at these pictures.  Today, I think they actually look quite nice!  I must be nearly back to my normal self at last.

Just thought I would share this random doodle with you today!

Baby post in disguise

I think I'm probably going to be boring you with quite a lot of baby posts from now on so I'm thinly disguising this one as a craft post.

I'm crocheting this baby blanket (although I have temporarily run out of yarn) which I started before we knew what flavour its going to be.  Luckily it will have a ribbon threaded through the border where I can add a girly touch.  I have to say its very soothing repeating the same crochet stitch over and over again on something this big.

And while we are on the subject of the blanket here is the project bag I'm keeping it in.  I got it from Loop and it comes with a choice of bird print.  I may have to go back for more as its very handy to keep projects separate.  (my knitting bag is bursting at the seams with halve finished projects, pattern books and balls of yarn so things tend to get a bit tangled!).
