Well it's been a while since I blogged as I've been really busy with finishing up my foundation course. Above is a picture taken at The BCTF in Harrogate and shows my printed scarves hanging up on their display board.

The show went really well and there was a lot of interest in my work, which was really pleasing.

After the BCTF I then helped organise and plan our end of year show within the college. We had to rearrange our working areas and completely paint mostly everything in order for it to look perfect. And I have to say it did look pretty good when it was all done. The picture below shows my area with my scarves, embroidered textile prints, 2D prints and my sketchbooks.

Through exhibiting at the BCTF I have been asked to supply some of my scarves to a Christmas Craft Fair called Bedazzled, which is taking place in the gallery of Bradford College later this year. I have been designing some new prints to use and have two new ideas.

This image above is a rough drawing of an adaptation of Cherry Blossom which is going to be one of the new designs. The other design is a seed head print that I had drawn in a sketchbook a couple of years back and have wanted to use for a while, but never got chance. I think they both will make perfect scarf prints and can't wait to get them printed up.
