Buy Yourself Flowers

This month I decided to impoverish myself by purchasing a Windows Surface Pro 4. My previous laptop was in a sorry state, dating circa 2009, and, in one memorable tipsy escapade, having once been used as a base on which to do some lino cutting.

I'm determined my new pride and joy will suffer no such fate. Aside from needing a new device to use for doing stuff like writing this blog post on, what really drew me to the Surface was the fact that it doubles up as a drawing tablet. I have wild dreams of designing fabric prints, but have started small with some illustrations on current preoccupations (vintage Valentine's cards, self care). While I have a long way to go, I am enjoying how quickly I can produce images and the many different effects which come with the software.

(I will get back to stitching at some point... honest...)
