I'm wondering the same thing as Jill. It's afternoon here in the EDT zone and nothing in my email; I even checked my Spam folder.

Finally! I was beginning to think we would never see this finished. It looks fabulous.

I would love to be able to use custom gift wrap. I'm hoping you'll make it a permanent addition. victorialasher

I've been thinking about using a 30 inch decal, cut in quarters as a faux headboard. This would be perfect!

Cute potholder. That "Hello Sunshine" fabric collection makes me smile too; and your photo of it really shows it off nicely.

I really need new pinking shears, mine are so dull the fabric folds in the teeth in the back half. Of course they are over 50 years old so it's not surprising. And it would be so nice to have a convenient little pair of thread clippers, not to mention new fabric shears, since mine have been borrowed a few times for paper (I finally hid them to protect them). My Spoonflower screen name is "victorialasher"

You've nailed it Kelly! Oh my goodness, so hard to pick just one; they're all great. I had to decide whether to vote for the one that was the most "Outside the box" or the one that was most useful to the average fabric buyer. And, although that narrowed the choices, it was still a tough decision.

Great interview. I'm very excited to see Samarra's new lines. I've been a fan for quite awhile and have my fingers crossed for some fabric.

I love Patty's designs and am really looking forward to seeing the new things she will be doing.

I like the extra confirmation step. I have often finished voting and realized I have one in there I don't like as much as the others, or found I missed one I was unsure of but later wish I had voted for. Now I can vote for all the ones I like and then trim the choices at the end with out worrying about missing one. It's much easier than going back through all the pages; and then forward again to confirm. Thank you Spoonflower!

Bravo for a brilliant mask, SammyK. You are obviously a ferocious competitor with a heart of gold. Keep designing Eislinn, you rock; and I can't wait to see what you will make with your prize money. Post pictures. Love that video Spoonflower folks!

Kim, it was a great idea to ask these two designers, who take such excellent pictures, for hints and tips. Berene, that camera bag is so cute.

Thank you for sharing your photography tips KristopherK. Since your pictures are always lovely I know your tips will work. The lighting tips will be especially helpful for me.

I find it so disconcerting how so many designs that are tagged "ditsy" are just tiny; but not really ditsy. One of the things that makes ditsy designs difficult is trying to get a pleasing repeat that is not orderly. The one Kim Selected is a good example of ditsy; but it seems like a lot of the designs are just small. I really hope we won't have to wade through dozens of designs that are not really ditsy in order to vote.

I'm at Spoonflower almost everyday, also. I still remember my first correspondence with you, Kim. I had tried to sign up and had some sort of problem; but you took care of me, got me signed up, and I've been addicted ever since. I'm very thankful for SF, and the friends I've made through it. Yes, not only can you have a real community; but you can make real friends in that community. SF has jump-started my stalled creativity; and improved my brain function. I know that sounds strange; but I think it has. I had never made a repeating pattern when I first started and I taught myself all sorts of tricks to make them work. I consider getting a design to repeat like doing a fun puzzle. And I'm always trying new things (although they don't all make it to SF). I would dearly love to be doing design as a career; But I think working for SF would be great also. When you post job openings I always wish I lived down there. Be sure to post picture of all those curtains.

Congratulations! This is a stunning collection, every design a knockout; and they look so good together. I'm very happy for you.

I wish Spoonflower would remove the 3 designs That don't repeat, one of which is "Centered". It was clearly stated that designs must repeat. There is no way to make it up to the 3 designers who lost out to the 3 that should have been removed before the semifinalists were even selected; but they could at least remove them now.

Decisions, decisions. This is a tough contest to vote on. Do I vote for the designs just based on how much I like them; or do I also consider how they will work as a cover for that couch. hhhmm

I just noticed that you don't mention clowns in the post; and they were included in the original theme for this contest. Clowns aren't really the same thing as fools and jesters, or jokers; so some people might feel that entries depicting clowns are off theme.
