Midsummer Design

This weeks Spoonflower Contest is a color restricted design based on Shakespeare's Midsummer Nights Dream.  My design shows Titania besotted with Bottom while fairies hover over a field of Love in Idleness (a kind of wild pansy or violet.)  I thought this challenge particularly hard to design for but I enjoyed listening to the play audiobook on Youtube while designing.  Voting in the contests ends Thursday.
I will be taking a break from entering the contests for a few weeks.

Farmer's Market Bounty

Farmer's Market Bounty close-up
This week's Spoonflower fabric design contest theme is Farmer's Market.  My design is based on the garden that the farmer's market fruit, vegetables and flowers are harvested from.  The color pallet is similar to my Garden Path with Chickens design.  If you get a moment, please vote in the weekly contest
