Goodbye & Goodluck!

So at 2pm today I handed in my David Nieper Competition and project. what a relief!
The challenge was..
“to design a collection of 5 garments aimed at fashionable and professional 50+ women. Your collections must also be appropriate for a smart 80 year old who likes to be comfortable but prides herself on an elegance that gives her natural confidence.” -http://www.fashionacademy.org/academy-content/competitions/david-nieper-student-fashion-competition-2011
All in all I feel it went really well, the sketchbook, range plan, outfit board and moodboard all had a strong essence of the theme-inspired by the Royal Family. I called my collection “Royally Yours”

“A collection inspired by the Royal Family in all its glory”
The collection featured rich colours, jewels, Kate Middleton inspired coat dresses, The Queen and luxurious fabrics.

I'm already getting stuck in to the next project at uni, working with Tallulah Love. Pretty excited!
Will update on that when i have more to blog about.

Well this has been an eventful weekend!                                                             
Amongst the piles of work and shopping trip to Teesside Park I have managed to knit 2 scarves  
1 headband and 5 mug warmers..
I fear I may have a problem,

On the plus side, my sketchbook for the David Nieper project is looking pretty good, I've even knitted a clasp to keep the book together. HA surprise surprise!

I have also decided to flex my entrepreneurial muscles and sell a few mug warmers on Ebay!
These lovely cosies are available now from the following link

Best wishes

Testing 1, 2, 3..

So I've just created my blog and done the usual tweaking of fonts and backgrounds.
This will probably be a trial layout as I am sure I will swap and change to add more of my personality and style to the site.
This one will be quick as my housemates and I are venturing out to hobbycraft and most likely hit the shops too! Leaving before 11 so I should definitely be getting washed and out of my pyjamas shortly!
Today I've opted for a little lie in as I stayed up late last night doing work on my David Nieper Project/Competition entry.
( I promise to upload and explain a little more about this project in a later post)
Its now 10.08 and I have yet to shower so I had better be off.

Bye for now,
