Peacock Design Development

Happy 1st of May everyone! I hope you all had a good weekend? I had a lovely time with my cousin and aunt who was here visiting. It didn't stop raining during the whole time they were here so that was a bit of a shame, but it was really nice to see them and we still had fun!

This week I am doing some design development on my existing patterns to get them ready for production, I will be receiving the grant money in 2 days, yay!
I never felt 100% happy with this peacock pattern, I like the drawings separately but I don't feel it flows as a pattern. The peacock looks too static, I don't know if it's the tail or the layout, but I decided to change it.
So I'm replacing this peacock...
with this one!
I'm also gonna change the pumpkins and a few other bits. This is what the pattern looks like at the moment, I already feel better about it! I have also changed the layout of the pattern, before the drawings were repeated in straight lines, now I've done something called a 'half-drop', it means that the image has been "dropped" and repeats diagonally, I think it works much better!
Now I've got to put it together properly, but I'm happy I figured it out because it has been bugging me for so long!

Åh det blir så sjukt fint! Så himla kul att göra patterns! Skönt att du kom på vad som var "fel", är så jäkla tråkigt när man jobbat med nåt helt länge men det bara känns som ett "jaha" när man är klar.

Imorn åker vi till England, ska bli superkul men nåt vidare väder verkar det ju som sagt inte vara...:) Och här hemma är det runt 20 grader varmt och sol...:)
