Jurassic Traffic my new dinosaur range has arrived!!

Around this time last year I was asked by one of my best customers who had just recently become a mum if I would help her to refurbish a chair for the baby's room. The baby (more a toddler now probably) was a boy and his room had a green and purple theme. I started working on drawing dinosaurs using my son's massive collection of dino toys and books. It took ages absolutely ages for me to get the drawings done, its hard to draw realistic looking dinos and some of them are quite ugly. Plus my new found (rediscovered) obsession with drawing with my black marker didn't help, there is no erasing with the black marker!  I have to admit that I found it quite a challenge, I had an idea but actually making it look the way I had envisioned took ages, I stopped and started with my client gently reminding me and at last they are done finished and here and I must say I am delighted with them! I only have 5 of them here now but there are more coming in other colorways and they will be available as a coordinating quarter bundle or individually as quarter, half or full yards.  The series, Jurassic Traffic, will be my focus for the next few months so please bear with me while I promote them endlessly x Tara

I love the color purple, its the color of some of the most amazing things such as Purple Grape Soda, , the middle of the Agave cactus sometimes it pops up in the most amazing places such as the piles of Bluebells that spring up in my garden each spring, I don't know why they are called Bluebells they should be called purplebells cause they are seriously not blue but purple! I use purple a lot in my work and I love my new 'Grape Soda Space Girl' print its beautiful and would look so amazing in a baby nursery or as stunning curtains or wallpaper.  Speaking of wallpaper I am in the process of getting ready to have my first wallpaper made. I am waiting at the moment for the samples of my new designs to come back before I go for it but I cant wait!!
Its getting close now to Paddy's day and I am trying to figure out what I am going to have as prize for my giveaway. Last year I gave away two all green fat quarter bundles, this year I am thinking of tossing the green theme and maybe going for a 'Green White & Gold' theme or I could just go for it give away a massive selection of other prints such as this gorgeous new ''Park Round The Block From Me' hmmmmm......... Any ideas guys?
