I feel that computers are currently against me (especially my cousin's laptop... grrr!) I am currently trying to set up an account with this online portfoilo website everycreative.com which is a great. I got an email thru just yesterday saying that they had gone round New Designers way back when in July and had picked up on some peeps work they would like to encourage to join. I was very happy about this and have joined up. HOWEVER, I have then tried to update/upload a biography and have done so a couple of time and does the computer do as I say and save what I have spent an hour and a bit to write.... thats right... a big fat NO! Maybe I should take a coffee break to try and re-group :-(
Also, good news started new sketchbook work again FINALLY! Lets hope I can keep up the work and stop ranting.

Lace Table Runner
Her current blog is all about the theme of 'Nostaligic Britain' showcasing work from New Designers including my work and 3 other designers, which you can imagine that I am chuffed to bits that she liked my work at ND and it's also nice to see different designer's takes on the nostaligic idea.

An amazing opportunity for new graduates to display their work in the Design Business Centre, Islington, Old London Town for the public, industry and fellow design graduates to have a wee gander at. Duncan of Jordanstone Textiles unfortunatly was no big winner in any of the prizes, but as my Gran always said 'it's not the winning, it's the taking part that counts' too right!
Our stand seemed to get a lot of positive interest and a number of the girls where approached (myself included) by a number of different possible clients. Very exciting!
It was a great way to finish university life, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in London and will miss the rest of the Textiles girlies... roll on the reunions.
I stupidly didn't have a camera to capture ND but luckily my fellow peers did so I shall post some piccies of our stand in due course.
