I'm Back!

I'm back in London, travelling back and forth to Sweden in three days was intense! My design presentation went well, although no deal at this point which was a shame. I showed my designs to a Swedish department store, and even though they loved most of them it wasn't right for their product range. They said I was welcome to show them more designs in the future though, so I'll do that. I got some valuable feedback and insight into the technical aspects of selling to a big company so that was good. Plus there's another company that have shown interest in these designs so fingers crossed for that one!

Now I'm excited about my first weekend off in three weeks, tomorrow James and I are going shopping and for a nice lunch, and on Sunday I'm hoping to get a nice massage.

Before that, I wanted to show you how the pattern design with the bullfinch (thank you Sofia B for teaching me the name of the bird:) turned out, so here it is!

Happy Weekend!

that's very brave of you to take your designs to a big company and i'm glad you at least ended up with some valuable feedback lisa! the design with the bullfinch is great as well - i'm always so impressed because i don't understand patterns or how they are put together!
