This is the latest thing I've learned from Spoonflower.
How to design and organize my patterns into Collections.

Ditsy Prints

Ditsy prints are by definition tiny patterns scattered randomly.
Spoonflower run a contest for ditsy prints titled Ditsy Sea Creatures.
I entered this pattern of Ditsy Fish.

Ditsy Fish
I didn't win, but got some very nice comments. Since I started entering some of their contests, more and more people have started looking at my work on the Spoonflower website.
Sadly I still don't know how to interact with those people using social media like twitter or facebook.
I guess I'll have to learn.

Beautiful fabrics

My fabric samples from Spoonflower have arrived.
They are beautifully printed, but one of the designs just doesn't have the right background colour.
I have had a bit of trouble with reds and pinks. What I see on my computer screen does not print the same.
I'm learning how to overcome that problem, but Roman is going to try and match the computer colours to the printed ones.
Overall the results are fantastic.

Fantastic results
