Go Granny - Exclusive Behind the Scenes...



Apologies lovely readers - I know I promised to show the Go Granny behind the scenes photos last week, but then life and general craziness and phone problems and babysitting took over... yadda yadda yadda... you know how it is!


I must thank Brianna for snapping some photos while we working away trying to get the colours just right (and of course, for making me cups of tea).


It's actually quite cool to have some photos to document the final design process.



This was the very first print...


Checking the design size.


A few more rows....  check out that printer head whizzing past!


This was the first full metre printed...


The Money Shot!

Thankyou so much to Michelle from Frankie and Swiss for her invaluable help and hard work at such short notice. I was kind of in a huge rush to get printing...

Can't wait to get stitching with it now!

PS - I have panels listed in the shop but it's also available as metreage... just purchase multiple panels and I'll cut as one piece.

Look at you folding colours over to see what they look like together - that's exactly what I do! I've never seen mine printed, so I'm living vicariously through you. And it looks like there may be some kind of subliminal message in the yellow of the final piece... 1998 or something... it's seriously cool...
