su_g says: Belated thanks Amy and new thanks Tina for your Halloween-oriented comments! Sadly I think this design must be just too scarey - or not appropriate enough?? - as it has yet to feature in any uses for Halloween... I do really appreciate your comments on it tho!

su_g

su_g says: Ha ha Penny, re your wishful thinking about this design in a sun dress in January... altho' that timing would be perfect on this side of the world (or, if you're like me and it takes you so long to sew anything that the next season has arrived before you've finished...)

bippidi...

bippidiiboppidii says: Looks fantastic Su! Makes me think of that beloved desert in the centre of our lovely country. I DO love black and orange together (and they don't generally make me think of Halloween, perhaps because it's not such a big thing here) - the orange is a perfect background for your fabulously sinuous snakes.

su_g

su_g says: Thanks Lynette, Isabella and Sue Ellen - more great ideas! Your comments really tickled me - esp. the thought that wearing this fabric would be way less trouble than belly dancing with a real snake...

fibrefreak says: I love this one...one of the few black and orange prints I've seen that doesn't remind one of Halloween... it would make a great skirt or vest.

su_g

su_g says: Thank you so much everyone for your comments! It was wonderful to wake up to them this morning. Excellent feedback from the collective appreciation society here: I also like this in yardage where it sets up some secondary patterns, and I love the idea of it in a vest that just peeks out from more "staid" business clothing - I've been wrestling with vest patterns as I think vests could be an good use of a lot of Spoonflower designs (that might be overwhelming in larger pieces of clothing) so this is VERY motivating!

rhondad...

rhondadesigns says: Slithering beauty with a touch of menace! The sinuous, rippling pattern of your reptilian design has captured the feeling of awe and admiration that is evoked by the sight of these creatures!

Posted almost 4 years ago.

fireflower

fireflower says: I love this! (even in Black and Orange ... NOT one of my favorite colorways....) The wavy patterns of the bodies, linked by the triangular viper heads is so attractive and iconic, I could see this on a cave wall or a rock face or on aboriginal pottery. I think you've tapped into something quite elemental and elegant, another classic. Good luck in the contest!
