A quick result for the cat fabric, I did so so, came 85th out of 237.
More fabric has been designed for this weeks Spoonflower contest which the theme is 'spoons', I couldn't resist having a go at some simple designs.
These were the first, spoon outlines.
Next I did these which were slightly inspired by that retro, Festival of Britain type feel and colour.
I looked on the Spoonflower site and there are already lots of simple spoon outline designs so I decided not to enter any of the above. I wanted to do something a little more quirky. Two things came into my head, that lovely nursery rhyme image of 'the dish running away with the spoon', not that I could do anything illustrative like the jolly nursery rhyme books I had as a child. The other thing spoony I thought of were the Welsh Love Spoons, beautiful carved pieces with symbolic meanings.
I looked some up and nearly started trying to draw them but I didn't have time as the deadline is today.
Instead I've whizzed up a quick design, called Love Spoons, a running spoon with a whole lot of love to give.
I'm entering the white version, with multi colour hearts, basically because I couldn't decide which colour background I preferred.
I am still updating fabrics and adding to the collection at my Woven Monkey shop. Recent additions have been the range of Breakfast fabrics, now in new colours.
This is a completely new range on Woven Monkey, Savannah Stripes.
Moving on to crochet, I've been willing Spring to get here and I've made some spring flower jewellery. A little brooch, probably end up as a Mother's Day gift and the necklace which I'm finishing for myself.
I bought myself a new ball of wool and this lovely new crochet hook with a rubberised handle which is very nice to hold.
Finally, a couple of Harris Tweed makes for my Folksy shop, a pin cushion and needle case, this is quite a large needle case so plenty of room for stuff.
Thank you if you stuck it out!!
