Printing on a rainy afternoon.

We had a crappy day yesterday. We ended up in hospital with Miss eight and an unidentified itchy, red, raw rash.

She's much better today but we are all a bit slow and fragile.

I've been dying to get back to some more printing but the girls were not overly inspired with their drawing or cutting stencils so I took over.

My drawing were certainly not as inspired as theirs, but once I'd cut them out they were happy to take over and squeegee.

As we were printing there was lots of chatter about a stall at the Daylesford Makers' Market, softies, pockets and patches. Don't you love that feeling of the more you make the more you want to make?

I hope you have a great week and get to see at least a little sunshine where ever you are.


  1. It's a hard choice, but I've decided I'd rather eat the cupcake than the apple. I can't work out what's that pointy thing in the bird's tummy. Could it be a garlic clove?
    PS I hope you have a great week too. Including, and especially, the darling sick one. The forecast's for sunshine here on Monday and Tuesday. But let's wait and see. xxxxx

  2. Beautiful prints Kate and I do hope that Indi is feeling better now. T. x

  3. Lovely, bright prints. Hope little one feels better soon x

  4. oohh no, hope little one is ok today. you did very well with the screen printing, I do love the cupcake aswell. another rainy day expected tomorrow, but you know I love rainy days...but then again, the kids get silly indoors.
    hope you & your girls have a great day tomorrow ♥

  5. What a perfect activity for a rainy day. I love the pink on pink print on the t-shirt - subtle and pretty.
    You've got the apple design looking fabulous.
    Hope Miss 8 is feeling better!

  6. Sorry to read about the not so good day yesterday.

    Love the gorgeous printing you're doing, and yes I do love that feeling of wanting to make more. When inspiration takes hold it's fabulous.

  7. I love all those screen printing images Kate. Are you going to be selling them as t-shirts at the market. I hope your little one feels much better soon and the rash goes away.

  8. Love your screen prints. You are inspiring me with every post. What do you do your stencils with?
    They all look so great and how wonderful to get the kids involved in the printing process, I would have loved that as a kid.

  9. Hope your sweet girl is on the mend. The screen printing looks great. It brings back memories of lino cut printing (from my uni days)

  10. They all look great Kate.
    The market stall is sure to be a sell-out!!

  11. Oh the pink on pink cupcake shirt is AWESOME!

    Glad the hospital trip wasn't more serious - yikes!

  12. Ok kate, now I have to know how the contact fits in to this.....I have acres of the stuff left over from book covering if you want some.

    I love the apple !!!

  13. Ohhh that looks like so much fun. I wish there was more time in a day, in week, in a month in a year in my life!! I'd love to print with my kids!

    Love the birds and the owl. they look so effective. Just wonderful Kate

  14. Wow. It looks like you are having a ball!!! I LOVE all of them!!

  15. That bird is too perfect! I like that funny one you made on that t-shirt better. Just joking. Kind of.

  16. I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I'm not very web smart so I'm not 100% positive.
    Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
