My lovely, longtime friend Anna makes beautiful up-cycled aprons from vintage and pre-loved fabrics. She wondered if I could make a lino design she could use for her bags and tags, something that would reflect her English background (she now lives in the USA) and have a feeling of the outdoors and nature about it.
I had a few ideas, we bandied them about a bit, and then I confess I procrastinated quite a while (months, in fact). Eventually, and thankfully, inspiration struck as I was marvelling at the huge acorns the little oak in our garden had produced.
Anna is to be thanked for her huge patience; hopefully she will find this little lino fits the bill, and that her cottage business continues to go from strength to strength.
