Sleepy Cat in a Spring Garden - Playing with Patterns

Hope this blog post finds you well.

The past couple of weeks have felt like a little bit of a struggle as it's the season of colds and flu and I've been carrying my dose around with me, which has left me feeling a little lack lustre.  
So I felt it was important to carve out some creative play time.  For me that meant exploring a little more pattern making. I'd drawn some spring flowers in my sketch book that had been inspired by the little snowdrops and crocuses that are popping their heads up in my garden and making me smile...

 I scanned the drawings and started adding colour.
The bright zingy orange of the crocus seemed to determine the colours and made me think of a certain marmalade coloured tom cat that frequently visits our garden - so he's made it into the designs too...

All in all, it's been a fairly good way to nurse a cold and I feel like I've achieved something - even if it wasn't what I was supposed to be achieving!
As John Lennon once said "Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted!"

My new Sleepy Cat design is now available to be printed on demand onto all kinds of everything over at my Society 6 shop.

Have a lovely day!
Best wishes
