Le tour de France in Cambridge

Stage three of the Tour de France started in Cambridge today and we went down to see them cycle past.  We had to wait around for quite a while for the riders, so it was lucky that the weather was beautiful. There  was a great atmosphere in the crowd too, high fives from the British motorcycle police and even a smile from the French Gendarmes.  Being near the start all the riders were still together and passed us in about 30 seconds; luckily I wasn't trying to match the bikes up to my anatomy of a bike print!  I did like all the different colours the riders wore and they were a grand sight as the sped past us.  Well worth the wait.

Screen print for new owl design cushions

This week I was looking at my owl hot water bottle covers and it occurred to me that they would also make really good cushion covers too.I had to experiment a bit with different colours for them, as you can see I tried quite a few! In the end I managed to mix some colours I liked and printed some test covers.I had to air dry them for a couple of days, not helped by the wet weather which decided to come over just as I started to do this! I still have to put them together but I’ll keep you posted, so you’ll be able to see how I get on.
