Time for something e-book mail out coming soon!

It's been super-busy here in the studio - I'm currently working on a new e-book - it's coming along and I'm very excited - it should be available by October (fingers x'd!)

Whilst it's cooking, I thought we'd have a little fun, so, I've put together a pre-book, mini e-book (does that make sense?). Providing all the planets align and the internet mail-gods play nicely this free mini e-book is due to go out to email subscribers from 15th September, 2015 (Australian Eastern Standard Time).

Please note: In order to receive this free mini e-book, you will need to have a confirmed email subscription to A Little Lime by 14th September, 2015 (AEST) - unfortunately I am not able to send this e-book retrospectively, so please if you want it, ensure your subscription is completed by this date.

Email subscription is a very easy, two part process:

1. enter your email and follow the on-screen instructions.
2. You will be sent a confirmation email - you will need to click the link inside the email to approve your subscription.

If you start receiving emails each time I create a new blog post - it's all good :)


**I do know that not everyone follows via blog emails and I absolutely appreciate you no matter how you choose to connect, but please understand that this is the only way I send out my free e-books**


No idea what I'm on about? Here's a look back at past free e-book mail outs:

The new e-book will be instructional @ the Aquafleur Rose mini e-book.
Pattern Folios go out in December

I hope you're excited..........I'm definitely excited! 

Keep your eye out for email from me from 15th September!
(any questions, shoot me an email :)

  3. Wow, this is exciting! Can't wait!!! Thank you so much for your generosity.

  4. Hi Helen I already subscribed in the past (cannot subscribe again) so does this mean I receive your mini e book?

    1. Hi Ellen, it should be fine - if you cannot subscribe again it means you're already subscribed. Do you get emails from A Little Lime when I do a blog post? If you do, then your book should come through no problems.

    2. Ok thanks alot Helen. I will wait patiently (not!!! ;-) )

  5. Thank you love your work both in e-mail and now I have found your FB page.

  6. Thank you in anticipation! You are both generous and inspirational!

PATTERN - Faux Weave

I am getting ever closer to the finish line of my course. I have one more round of assessments to go and should be done in around 6 weeks - I cannot wait! I have enjoyed it, but am more than ready for it to be over. Thanks for hanging in there with my erratic posting over the past year or so :)

My desk, which has a myriad of buried treasure amongst the clutter  (my organisation "system" tends towards scribbling things down on scraps of paper when I get an idea then throwing them on my desk). Anyway, I had a bit of a clean up last night and it offered up this pattern ready to scan and share.

I love, love, LOVE easy patterns and how, often, from a simple construct the illusion of a more complex design can be created.

I think that "faux weave" is one such example. What could be easier than spiralling around a single line? Stack these spirals together using a square grid, alternate the direction, add some basic fill and shading and all of a sudden you have a woven effe…

String Rose PATTERN

Well, d-day has almost arrived. Tomorrow I head back to school. Where did the summer go? At least the class schedule is looking pretty light and I'll only be at school for 2- 2 1/2 days a week.

Today I want to share a really simple technique/pattern I've called "String Rose". This idea first made an appearance on the blog during the old into new challenge back in 2014. I named one of the experimentation tiles as Trentwith and though this pattern was the initial source of inspiration, my version takes a different approach. I had always meant to share the technique as it's so simple, and fun, but I just didn't get around to it. Until now! 2 1/2 years later.....haha.

O.k., here goes........

The String Rose Pattern - this shows the base technique.

As it's all done in one continuous line, I thought a little insta-video might help out:

Puffy 8's PATTERN

O.k., wow. Another year done and dusted! Can you believe it's 2017? Me? I'm still reeling.

So, where did 2016 go? I had so much that I wanted to get done here on the website, but, life takes some interesting turns and my return to full-time study in 2016 though not planned, was so interesting - I loved it!

Since term ended for our long summer break, I've been periodically working on tidying up my files and found some unpublished patterns that I hadn't got around to posting. I'll put them up over the next few weeks.

Today I'm sharing a pattern called Puffy 8's - it's another spin off of 2/8's (love that base pattern!)

You could stop at step 5 above, or keep going to fill all the spaces.
And, what's life without a bit of freeforming?
Wishing everyone a happy, productive 2017!
