Spoonflower fabric 8 competition

Earlier this month I entered into the Spoonflower fabric 8 competition.  The theme was geeky chic and I used music for my initial inspiration.... I drew MP3 players and headphones.  This week I received a mail to say that my design had made it into the semi final round.  There are 100 semi finalists that have been selected by a team of industry professionals from Robert Kaufman and Spoonflower from over 750 designs.  Happy day.

You can vote for your favorite design on the fabric 8 contest here.

Yorkshire sculpture park

The weather was lovely and sunny over the bank holiday weekend so made the most of it by spending lots of time outdoors.  I went out to the Yorkshire sculpture park to see the work of Yinka Shonibare, an exhibition named Fabric-ation.  It includes a variety of colourful and vibrant works that have been created using sculpture, film, photography, collage and painting.

Had lots of fun doing jump photographs too................
