Old and new, here and gone

Hello!  There's a brand new kind of Dino in the shop.

After getting my dear old scarf above out for the first time this season, I started to obsess over the colour combination of cream + a certain shade of green, which was kind of weird.

I decided to get it out by reinterpreting my little old man in a new colour combo, and couldn't believe that I hadn't tried it until now.  He will be in the shop by the end of this week too.
And, I decided to show you a little of what I have been working on for a while now: soft goods of all sorts for the window of Craft Victoria, starting July 30.  I painted the motifs for the cotton fabric above last year, and finally they are getting an airing.  They will form the main part of a large quilt.
Looking back at old sketches from 2006, and remembering a country fella I went out with, whose little brother turned 21 while we were together.  The manly ritual above was part of the birthday boy's celebrations.  
 And another exceedingly fine fella above....Vale the Doc.  Here's a bit more of the Doc for you non Australians.  See youse later.

Sandra! That fabric! Can we buy it by the metre? Or are the motifs actually painted on the fabric as a one-off? I LOVE it.

YAY!!!! I am so glad you like it, Sass. Not sure how to answer your question -- it is presently a one off, but I could get more printed to order!
Very pleased to have your approval :-)
