taking shape...

Currently designing a piece of wooden bunting for Bristol's forthcoming BUNT exhibition, for Bristol's Big Green Week.  Each wooden triangle, designed by lots of different illustrators, will depict an endangered or threatened species found in the South West.  I have chosen to screen print the Cornish Chough, and am looking forward to giving him a glorious red beak...if I can only get the drawing right!!  I will update you with my progress...(eek).

In other news, it's your last chance to enter my little bag giveaway!  Just post a comment here for your chance to win a hand-screen-printed tote bag.   I will be deeply flattered.

I hope you're all having a glorious sunny day!  I will be getting a taste of the sunshine at the recycling centre (exciting, I know.  It is worrying how much I am looking forward to ousting the huge mound of recycling that has been slowly taking over our kitchen while the car has been out of action.  We cannot move for empty plastic bottles).


  1. Many many thanks Dawn for my wonderful bag that you kindly sent as I was your 100th follower. It is truly beautiful and I shall treasure it. Love your Banana Cake recipe from your previous blog, will have to give it a go soon. I don't think I've ever seen such a beautiful illustrated recipe. Also looking forward to seeing your finished Cornish Chough.

  2. Hi when is the exhibition on? i would love to pay it a visit when i am back home in Bristol :) i would also love to enter your little bag giveaway,, very exciting :)

  3. Caro; Thank you! I am so pleased that the bag arrived safely and that you like it!
    And thank you for your kind words about my recipe...! The next step will be to illustrate each stage! I have been ogling at your Chocolate Crinkle cookies. I will let you know if I give them a whirl!

    Danielle; Bristol's Big Green Week is taking place from 9-17 June, so I imagine it'll take place during this time, but I'll keep you posted!
