Why join the Navy when you can be a pirate

Yes, yes.

I just realised that never before, in all of my 4 previous posts, have I mention what it is that I do. Currently I've got 3 designs (all girls) and I draw them onto fabric (t-shirts, tote bags and the like) and then sew their clothing on.

Bessie, Molly and Lanna (named for Rheannalanalan), modeled by the lovely Amecia and Rheanna

acai-blueberry-pomegranate (tripple antioxidants)

Are the three main ingredients in this yummie Vitamin Water that I've been drinking and no I don't drink it because it is 'Vitamin Water' but because it tastes nice.

And in other more textiles related news I finally have photos of my bags. Rheanna and Meekaleeka help me out today with them and I'll post some as soon as I can be bother resizing and editing and stuff. yep yep, cant wait.

I first set my eyes on sweet Molly Malone.

This is Molly. This is, however, Molly on her very best behavior, her hair isn’t usually quite so neat and her ribbons aren’t usually still in, she’s surprised us all by still having her socks pulled up and her dress still neat and tidy and devoid of dirt.

Molly might be a bit of a little rascal, I guess that’s what you get when you grow up in a house full of boys, but she is, underneath it all, quite sweet and a lovely child. You can tell already that she’s going to grow up to be quite the little heartbreaker.

I'd like to introduce you to Bessie. Bessie, short for Elizabeth and named for Bessie in Enid Blyton's Magic Faraway Tree series, while always wearing the same outfit (she's really awfully fond of it), she wears this outfit proudly and in many different colours.

Bessie is a lovely girl who while not the most outgoing person is certainly not shy. I’ve known her for almost two years now but to someone who doesn’t know her she may come across as a bit of a plain Jane but to her friends she is one of the most interesting and individual people they know.

She can generally be found at the library, reading anything and everything, she is always striving to expand her knowledge of the world. She is however awfully fond of those trashy teen fantasy romances.

Previous 'Quote of the moment'

As we know, there are no known knowns. There are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns. That is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns, the ones we don’t know we don’t know.
- Donald Rumsfield

A book is the only place in which you can examine a fragile thought without breaking it, or explore an explosive idea without fear it will go off in your face. It is one of the few havens remaining where a man's mind can get both provocation and privacy.

Welcome to Dear Tilly (the name of my to be brick and mortar shop)

I imagine pretty pictures, intelligent conversation and some possibly random mayhem…
