Print your own fabric.... in the UK...!!!!

I've just found this new business which might interest all you UK based people -

Seems they'll print your fabric designs up digitally and send it to you in no time.... (like Sp....nflower but in the UK).

I've designed and sent off to print this silk scarf design today and will post a picture of the scarf when I receive it.  (If it arrives as quickly as they promise, it may even answer lots of Christmas present requirements!)  It's a bit 'loud' but I expect when it's printed onto the silk the colour will dilute somewhat.

Hope you're all enjoying the run up to the festive season which seems to be upon us all too soon.

Hi everyone. It's been a massively busy time for me with things happening in very close proximity. Some of you know I have just had a book of my photographs published called, All Prize Winners Paraded. I finished making the work about nine years ago and the book has always been an idea...until now! I'm very blessed. The work is about the stillness of small rituals, told through the Australian rural agricultural 'show'. If you'd like to see some of the images from the book you can check out website of M.33 where I'm represented.

My other news: I have a solo show in a window space in Sydney called Branch 3D (all of November). This project was so much fun to do - the work is called, 'Vessel' and the pieces are made out of vintage tea towels. I LOVE old tea towels so if you have any rolling around in cupboards that you don't want anymore, contact me and send 'em over! They may just end up in some art work. You can see the work here at my website and here at the Branch website.

Hope you are all well. I was so sad to miss out on Jessie Chorley's workshop in France this year but as you can see I was a bit busy. Cancelling was not easy to do.  I followed Becky's photos on Facebook and it was lovely. I always feel like I am so far away when great things are happening over there.
