i got an e-mail yesterday from Spoonflower telling me that my art deco fabric was voted into the top ten (of about 200 entries) in last week's contest! i got my first commission on the design this morning when a lovely (and very tasteful - ha ha) Spoonflower customer ordered a test swatch of my design on silk! the top ten fabrics are here at Spoonflower's Flickr gallery. mine is in the far left of the second row, looking like what you see above.

now, i really got a kick out of that contest and am already mulling over ideas for the 'your town toile de jouy' contest they're holding (deadline Feb. 28th). the Netherlands just seems to lend itself to this historical design style and also to a particular modern twist. Stay tuned for more ...
