More Inkscape Work 2011

I've put my 2011 Christmas card pattern in repeat, and ordered a fabric sample from Spoonflower.

I love putting patterns in repeat. It can be hard and fiddly but it is very exciting.

And another one
I've also ordered these as fabric samples. Stay tuned for when they arrive.

Bitmap and Vector

Gimp is a bitmap program and Inkscape is a vector program.One is about pixels and the other is about mathematical formulae.
For someone who didn't grow up with computers as I've said before, computer language very often seems like gobbledegook.
To make matters worse, English is not my first language.
It took me ages to understand what it all meant and how to use it.
So, thanks to Roman who taught me, here is my first vector drawing.

I have ordered a fabric sample from Spoonflower, but it hasn't arrived yet.

I've entered this design in a Spoonflower contest. I didn't win, but got some very nice comments.
