Put on the tea kettle, you're in for a long one! 

This is an epic All About YOU newsletter... it seems that there are a LOT of surface pattern designers out there and I've included everyone who submitted work in the past few weeks leading up to Surtex (whether they're attending or not!) So get your cup of tea and settle in for a scroll... (you'll probably have to click to expand the full message... don't miss the subscription discount code at the very end of the message!)

I love these bird feeders by Sally Hollingworth. The patterns are fun and the bits of newspaper are unexpected. I can only imagine what pretty birds would visit these feeders! Sally writes, "Patterns I created using watercolour, fine liner pen and collage (using printed watercolour and found papers)." Follow Sally on Instagram.
