Up to speed

Now i'm all caught up with my blog (except for yesterday but i'll get to that now). This week it's back to work for me. I love it here!! right now all but one of the men are out of the office so its a really nice gossipy, chocolate eating environment :) yesterday was the first day since i've been here that i didn't spend all day designing, instead i got to spend the morning rifling through a big box of fabric :) :) :)

Also i feel its worth mentioning that i am now the ultimate master of least for the purpose of textiles design........and for anyone who is interested (or maybe also struggling with channels) I was shown yesterday how to save them as JPEG's! yes, i am excited about this, trust me its super useful and quite simple as it turns out :)

Today i'm working on designs for a mix & match range. It's not something i've done before so i'm enjoying the challenge. Its more difficult than I thought coz i'm having to create a set (or sets) of three prints that work as a group but are also appealing when they stand alone. I've just had Chiara's seal of approval for the first one so i must be doing something right :) 

It would seem that my learning for the day doesn't stop there, no no. Today I have also taken my first steps towards learning the value of simplicity. It sounds easy enough but its asking quite a lot of someone who's final year collection looked like this................!!!
Moving on...............I'm hoping to have a nice relaxing evening, possibly watch something stupid online if the internet holds up. Me, Zeffira and Tulay did a big shop yesterday (which reminds me I owe Tulay some euros) so we won't be going hungry tonight! last night we made a big pot of chilli so i'm hoping we won't have to cook at all! Fingers crossed!
