Happy New Year, thank you UPPERCASE and your vote please :)

I wish you all the very best of prosperity, health and happiness to you and yours in this coming year! My heartfelt thanks to all who have supported me and my work with encouragement, likes, faves, hearts, comments and purchases - 2016 was my best year yet!

Mine got off to an abfab start with the inclusion of my work in this simply fantastic surface design magazine

If you click HERE you can see a 'walk through' of this issue and with very adroit eyeballs you can catch my feature on page 76 on the left hand page and the inside column. What a deliciously, delightful, colour and pattern packed magazine - talk about eye candy!!
Thank you Janine Vangool for choosing me and my work! 

Now onto the voting business of the new year - my first challenge entry at Spoonflower. The call was for a textile design featuring YARN - here's my pattern - all originally hand painted in watercolour on paper.
A trompe l'oeil depiction of a simple Fair Isle knitting pattern - I had planned a much more complex striped design but quickly realized I had bitten off more than I could chew for the deadline so I stayed simple and am now creating more complex and coordinated motifs and patterns to add to my Spoonflower and other POD (print on demand) shops. 

Please may I ask you most kindly to
***You don't have to sign in to vote

***You can vote for as many designs as you like

***The order shuffles for each voter  
***You can only vote once :) 

Thank you so much for taking the time to vote for me - appreciatively
