I did it!

If you haven't yet heard.....I DID IT!!!!

Yes, you heard right. Out of 600 entries, I managed to get into the top 8 finalists in the most recent Spoonflower and Robert Kaufman competition - Space Odyssey - with this design and with YOUR help.

Spoonflower printed my design onto fabric, which was truly fabulous. It's the first time I've actually seen one of my designs printed up, so it was a really lovely surprise. I personally love this design, but I wasn't sure anyone else would, as it's a bit "different" But they obviously did! Hoorah!

I've spent most of the morning answering e mails, thanking people and trying to work out Spoonflowers messaging system (I had sooo many messages and likes. It was quite overwhelming!). It's all been a bit hectic, but I'm buzzing with excitement as you can imagine!

Thank you so, so much for your votes, I am over the moon (no pun intended) right now and couldn't have done it without you, your encouragement, kind words and of course, your votes!

What now?

Well, I have to go away now and produce a collection of designs to go with this main piece. I'm really excited and also a little nervous about this. However, this design is one of my favourites and I know I designed from the heart when I put this one together. I loved the brief, so I'm sure I'll have no problem putting the rest of the collection together. Famous last words hey!

Wish me luck. I've got about three weeks and then (I'm sorry) I'll be asking for you to vote for me again, if you like what I've come up with of course!!!

Thanks again!
