Studying a make it in design course

Many years ago I completed a degree in Surface Design. I always knew i wanted a career in design but possibly produce products with my prints on ( not my hand prints of course)

When i left uni, i did a days work experience at a design studio. This was where my confidence was knocked and i just wasn't good enough. The course i did didn't teach adobe illustrator which is kin of the industry standard now so i was already at a disadvantage.

Sadly after this my health declined so i put my dream on hold. Not to long ago i came across an online course called make it in design . There are 3 modules and each teaches you all about the world of surface pattern.It gives you exercises to do, industry knowledge and also technical workshops in photoshop and illustrator.

I'm really enjoying the course.I don't have a plan for what i want to do at the end as my health is so unpredictable. I'm loving the journey though.

That's enough of me waffling on. Here's a pattern i made that i think would be great on children's products.

Lots of love, Hayley x

I'm ready to start blogging again

As the title says.I'm ready to start blogging again. Still need to get around to doing my blog header oops.

Brief update healthwise. Last time i blogged i was still in hospital. My old hickman line had to come out as it had dislodged and the one my local hospital put in was to short. I also had my peg remove ( feeding tube into stomach) as i know longer used it due to being on tpn and fed into my blood stream.

Unfortunately when the was removed i developed sepsis.Luckily antibiotics were started within an hour so i made a full recovery. I spent a month in hospital before coming home. I am now starting to feel abit better and starting to do things.

I am doing an online courses or courses at the moment so i may overload you with patterns. Also i've been in the garden growing lots of veg.It makes me so happy seeing things grow from seed.

Mia the cat is doing well without molly and let me take a few photo's of her with my new camera.

She's not always this cute.She brought me a bird yesterday.Naughty mia.

Anyway bye for now, i hope to be more consistant in my blogging (and maybe spelling)
