Linen Bug....

Linens have always been a love of mine and I am always working on new ways to put together the vintage linens I find along with my own screen printed and hand blocked pieces.
lately though, I have been utterly consumed with clay.
To the point of actually not even thinking about my fabric pieces
...until today.

I sat this afternoon in the hot Summer Sun and mapped out what to do this year.
There is a plan. I will be working on a few designs and working them with vintage and new materials.
I have been sketching away over the past two or so years and finally feel I am ready to delve into those designs and put them onto new and vintage pieces...and have even started making the foundations for the prints.  

Marley & Lockyer
The year ahead is full of Design Markets, some are on the mainland and some here in Tassie.
I'm very excited about where Marley & Lockyer is heading and it is all thanks to you!
for your support, positive comments, helpful feedback and of course, for joining me on this journey.
I thank you all for that from the bottom my heart.

Now, off I go to check on some pieces in 'the hot box' which I will give you a look at soon.
....but for now...
the linen bug has hit! 


  1. Hi Ness,

    Don't get me started with linen - LOVE THE STUFF!!!! I dream of wrapping myself and the whole house in it. Love everything about it, from the colour to the texture and how it just melts everything else together!

    I have to say I really love your bamboo blind in your lounge room, I think it gives the room a contrast and being natural flows with everything else in the room as well. Not that you asked for my opinion!!!

    Scheme away Ness, can't wait to see your designs!


  2. Can't wait to see what you have created with LINEN! My favorite fabric!


I love to read what you have to say, so don't be shy! I try to answer your comments via email and will add answers in the comment form as well. I appreciate you taking the time. xx
