Last Minute Gift #2

About this time last year I held up a tea towel I had made at Craft Group in Christchurch and Lenore's cogs started whirring. While it was too short notice for Christmas '07, a little collaboartion involving Lenore, her Mum and myself created these tea towels. I was very lucky to find someone to do all the hard work- it was just my freezer paper stencil design, and a bit of stamping.

They are in store in Christchurch (Dusk) and Wellington (Vessel, Kura Gallery, Sommerfields, and Wanda Harland) and would make a perfect last minute gift for overseas friends (don't worry about the cut off date, better late than never), unexpected guests bearing gifts (always advisable to have an extra couple of gifts under the tree) or someone on your list that needs a little extra in their parcel.

A big thanks to Lenore for making this real- how stoked am I to have a tea towel I designed in all these cool Kiwi shops??!!


  1. Wow that is so cool! I get so excited about tea towels its almost embarrassing.

  2. I love your last minute gifts.. they are wonderful. What at thrill to think people will be buying your design (hey, and maybe even baking and cleaning up with it afterwards!)

    Lucky brother ..he's going to look cooool.

  3. THat is so awesome! I remember seeing a picture of your teatowel last xmas and getting inspired to do freezer paper stencilling.

    The first of a collection of teatowels perhaps?

  4. wowsers, you've been busy! I love the idea of the ornament swap - what a great way to get a diverse selection, yet they all go together! Any chance of your glove tutorial when you have time? Meanwhile a very merry christmas from a cold land...
