The Latest Thread – Design Challenge

This week my focus has been on the Spoonflower design challenge deadline. And need your VOTE! I gave 110%, but is an artist ever happy with the final design?  I ordered fabric swatches, painted new designs, bought myself a mother’s day gift and the grand baby reminded that I’m not as young as I used to be! So here’s the latest weekly thread…

Textiles, Textiles and Shopping

It was a little difficult selecting a textile design, and I almost attempted to create more designs, but the deadline was 10am on April 19th.  Here’s the design and fabric swatch “Secret Garden” I selected for the Kimono pattern design…

Textile – Vote

Please click on the photo below to vote for my design and other’s.  There are 700+ entries, so if you’re using a desktop or laptop computer you can find my entry on the page by selecting (CTRL+F) for the find option and typing LaCartera. This will save time and take you directly to my submission.

Thank you in advance for your VOTE!



I’ll share the new fabric designs with you next week when I approve the swatches!


I bought myself an early Mother’s Day gift from *Amazon! I’m so tired of the same old meals the same old way that I downloaded the Rachel Ray’s Big Orange Book “The ultimate collection of: 30 minute meals, vegetarian dinners, meals for one, kosher meals, holiday menus and much more!”

I admit that I need help and this give me a new twist on old favorites that will take me through summer into the new year!

This little guy reminded me that I’m not as young as I used to be and somewhere I lost the ability to multitask!

        The find shortcut (pressing the ctrl and f key together )only works from a desktop computer. Maybe a Mac has different shortcut key I can look

      9. It is okay, I will try again. I tried to use the usual search place first and found several of your designs for sale. After that I tried to find you by Ctrl+F but no.
