What a load of balls!

Hello all! Just over a week left until I finish my uni work so I've been feeling the pressure. However, I've almost finished my favourite final piece so I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. These knitted balls are for one of my final pieces and I just love them. I could spend all day playing with them, arranging them into different patterns - but I have no time for that right now, I have a final major project to crack on with! So here is a little taster of whats to come...

Feeling like a Pro!

Today I finished my press pack for part of my college work. I loved seeing the pack complete - it all looked very professional together and made me feel one step closer to being ready to finish college and enter the working world! I also picked up my business and post cards that I had printed - now I just have to find 250 people to hand them out to!

Colour Crazy

I was busy creating some business card designs today and realised that I hadn't blogged in a while. I've been a very busy bee recently during the last couple of weeks of university so I'm sorry I've been a bit quiet.
Anyway, whilst working away at my desk (aka my second home) I glanced away from my work and saw some materials that I just loved the colours of. As I love to share, I created a little collection of images so that you can see these wonderful colours too.
Feel free to let me know what you think :-)

I love the sunshine!

Over the weekend I took a break from my final major project and spent some time in the garden relaxing and gathering my thoughts. Whilst I was outside, it was so sunny that I had to take advantage of the nice weather and take some pictures. The garden at home is beautifully kept by my green fingered Mum and so has lots of wonderful flowers for me to photograph. Here are a chosen few:

Bradford Textile Society Design Prize Giving

Yesterday my friend Sam and I went to the prize giving for the Bradford Textile Design Competition to collect our commendation certificates. It was a lovely day with a gorgeous curry lunch which was lip tingling hot! I couldn't believe the standard of work that was there, it was amazing. Seeing the work was very inspiring but it also reminded me of the competition that is out there - innovation seems to be key so I need to keep my head in the game! However, I was very happy to be awarded a commendation prize so I wanted to share my certificate with you.
A big congratulations to all the winners and runners up! Images of the prize winners work will be up on the Bradford Textile Society website soon for you to have a look at.
