Some new fabric and wallpaper designs are up on Spoonflower!
The fabric samples have arrived, which means I can now offer the repeating pattern of wildflowers by the yard on fabric (and wallpapers) from Spoonflower: Wandering Wildflowers. It’s always a good idea to order a test swatch, first — what comes up a lovely slate-blue on cotton goes into a deep saturated golden-green on velvet (although I do like them both!).
If you don’t sew, Spoonflower does offer some pre-made home furnishings and masks.
The pattern is also up on Redbubble, on a variety of books, garments, etc.
Heath Miller posted a video performing a rather pointed piece from Shakespeare, and wound up on the news — and at the end there’s a cameo appearance of the city skyline from my art for Tremontaine, on his mask! (Not on Shakespeare’s, though).
You can watch the television item and video through the linked image above, or just the video below, and find Heath Miller at his website, Twitter, Patreon and many other locations. Tremontaine you can find on Serial Box (or as an omnibus) — and the Tremontaine Skyline mask, of course, is on Redbubble.
General Redbubble mask information is in their FAQs.
And if you’d like to make your own out of other fabrics (or just like to sew generally) a few of the repeating prints are up on Spoonflower, which sells lengths of fabrics (and wallpapers).
General Redbubble mask information is in their FAQs (and for every mask sold, Redbubble will make a donation to Heart to Heart International).

The original of the Be Bold, Be Bold paper-cut design has sold, but the white-on-black print is available on Redbubble, as an art print or other things (e.g. a hardback notebook which I think looks rather striking).
Fairy tales are famously hard on the feet (per Kelly Link’s “Travels With The Snow Queen”), but they aren’t kind to hands, either.
So here, for Halloween (and with the very excellent support of my patrons) is a collection of specific and general fairy-tale hands: spindle-pricked, scissor wielding, changed to silver, unlocking doors… (I’m including a non-blue-handed version, for those less spookily inclined, but the black-and-blue really does look rather like the colour schemes in Edmund Dulac’s fairy tale illustrations).
I also really like the underlay-colours here. Still want to work up a design like this without lines, but I keep getting distracted by detail. I should start with silhouettes.
I’ve also created a repeating pattern of this design, and it is now up on Redbubble on notebooks, dresses, etc (as part of my Halloween and Fairytale collections) (and if you like fabric by the yard, I’m waiting for test prints from Spoonflower). Incidentally, Girls Running From Houses (from last October) is now a repeating pattern and is on there too.
Edit to add: I’ve added the blue background (pink hand) version to Redbubble, too: Take My Hands.
The files below are for personal use and — as I mentioned — are done with the help of my wonderful supporters on Patreon (who also get sneak-peeks, variant colours, stationery, new Daleks, etc). If you’d like to join as a patron (from $1!) or otherwise throw a few coins in the tip jar to help the calendar keep happening, that would be very welcome — the calendar is fun, but takes a lot of time.
Note re links: I’m experimenting with affiliate links, which means I might get paid a small commission if someone buys something after clicking a link on my site. This is my first attempt, so I’m really just testing out the program links at this point!
I’ve updated my Redbubble store to include a Halloween category, bringing together (and updating) a few old pieces, with some new bats and skeletons thrown in for good measure.
