Lurking on Spoonflower

Not sure how long I've been lurking on Spoonflower -- maybe 10 years --  following the challenges, voting, and sometimes entering a design.  I tried repeat designs maybe 20 years ago but doing them by hand is a real chore. I think I just got frustrated -- that and life got in the way. 

This past Christmas my daughters gave me an iPad Pro and I downloaded ProCreate. Wow! After a sharp learning curve, I finally began to understand the process. I already had a few designs from previous challenge entries. With ProCreate I was better able to double-check that the repeats were correct. I began to participate seriously in the challenges and build up designs for a fill-a-yard sample (posted on Instagram @n_worrell). It was really great to see all those designs printed on fabric.





It was really thrilling that I sold a tablecloth the first week after opening my shop. I now have 38 fabric designs posted, 8 collections. Please come by for a visit -- maybe I have just what you are looking for.
