Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens. Visions of Julie Andrews and snow covered mountains have been keeping me company. 😁 I don’t expect this design to do well in the contest. The details are not clearly visible in the low res image. And maybe I went overboard with the distressed linen effect. Haha. Conus Spiceri is the shell that inspired this design. I used the Pantone color of the year, Viva Magenta.

Our next challenge is to use an assigned palette highlighting Viva Magenta. I am looking forward to it. Voting for favorite things is open until the 13th.

I see your furrowed brow. But soon enough, Valentines day will be here. Spoonflower is thinking ahead. Our challenge assignment this week is Funny Valentine. They are looking for a laugh, giggle or a smile.

Each of these cute Pandas has a message of their own. “You’re Beary cute”, “Time for a Bear Hug”, “You’re the Beary Best”, “You’re Beary Special”, “I love you Beary much”, “You make me Beary Happy”.

There is one main design, 4 variations, two colorways, and two coordinates with two variations. What time will the bus arrive if it leaves now? Kidding. (Sounds like a word problem.) Each coordinate comes plain, or with a linen effect.

This week there are 859 entries, voting is open now until December 6th.

Petite Pears for Spoonflower

Spoonflower is shrinking this week. We ‘re going ditzy! A ditzy pattern design is one that is small scale and random. A tossed pattern that is non-directional. They do not need to be matched up, and that saves on wasted fabric. They are great for clothing and quilting. The pears in my design are about 1 inch squared. Many ditzy patterns are even smaller.

Ditzy patterns have never lost popularity. In the early 1900’s, feed sacks were made from a light cotton material. Resourceful women were using them for towels and to make clothing for the family. Companies soon took notice, and started using ditsy prints on their flour sacks. Flour sack dresses were a staple during the depression in the 30’s.

Voting is now open. There are over 1200 entries again, so grab a cuppa. 🙂 There are quite a few pear designs, I voted for several of them. Thank you for taking the time. One of these days I will make the top 60. Fingers crossed. Haha. Hey, gotta have goals, right? Making the top for me, would mean that my skills have improved. So I will keep working at it. ;o)

Deco Diamond placed at 777 of 1276 entries with 26 votes. That’s about at the 60% range. I thought it would be lower. I went against the grain, hoping it might pay off. I knew there would be lots of scallop entries. You can see in the top 69, almost all of them were some form of a scallop.

So grateful for your votes! Thank you for taking the time. 1276 is a lot of entries to go through.

Wishing you all a fabulous weekend!

Never quit.
It is the easiest cop-out in the world.
Set a goal and don’t quit until you attain it.
When you do attain it, set another goal,
and don’t quit until you reach it.
Never quit.

The great danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.
