Wow, I won!

Another Spoonflower Fabric of the Week winner! Again, I didn't think mine had a chance against the other great designs. What a nice surprise!

The coolest thing has to be how they described it: "More fabric for geeks..."! Maybe that's my niche?

Public art, yay!

I just found out that my weird wildflower-covered dog is one of the chosen designs! I've been wanting to paint a giant fiberglass animal since Chicago's Cows on Parade in the '90s. It might sound kind of lame, but I'm pretty excited about it.

It'll be displayed in Batavia, Illinois this summer. Here's the website with more details about the project:Bulldogs Unleashed.

What I should've entered

It's in the early stages, so please excuse the unfinished-ness, but this was my big idea that I subsequently talked myself out of designing for Project Selvage. Hindsight is 20/20 and all that (sigh).

Instead, a much more finished version is coming soon to a Spoonflower Fabric of the Week contest near you!

I know the decision was based on what they thought would sell, but still, I can't help but feel a bit sad that my design didn't make it to the semifinals.

Should've gone with my initial idea of a mod space-themed design. Oh well... there's always next time.
