I recently whipped up a hummingbird pattern based on this very old drawing by Gould. It’s his drawing of the Hummingbirds ‘Amazilia yucatanensis’, a.k.a. the Buff-bellied Hummingbird.
Amazilia Yucatanensis – Gould
I’m having it turned into fabric with Spoonflower (exciting!) and while I’m eagerly awaiting the fabric arrival, I thought I should do something a little productive… Desktop/ iPad / iPhone backgrounds!
I love hummingbirds, and all birds really. It just so happened that this mirrored/repeated pattern came up SPLENDID-LIKE! I can’t go keeping a thing like that to myself – Below I’ve included the various sizes of patterns – feel free to share/download/use/enjoy!
This morning I whipped up a print of the world map in 3 colours. I’ve always been inspired and excited by maps, and it wasn’t until this morning that I worked out a way to get maps into my cushions. I can’t wait to see how the fabric turns out!
I ordered 3 yards of fabric from Spoonflower a few weeks ago. One of those yards (the Pineapples) is almost gone! So I decided it was time to place a 2nd order. It COULD have got out of hand but I was fairly restrained…
I re-ordered the pineapples Swallows pattern I whipped up
These 3 excellent vintage photos will become cushion panels
And finally… I’ve ordered 3 colours of pineapples on white background. So many pineapples!!!
That’s what’s going on in the Cumulus Factory! I can’t wait to get the fabric order 😀
