Part of my Far Away Folk collection for the the Fabric8 competition 2014.
These Far Away Folk are part of an adventurous intergalactic travelling community. During their explorations of planet earth, they fell in love with the folk patterns they found in Eastern Europe. They took them back to their world and made them their own! Here Stella and her faithful pets are out gathering cosmic flowers.

Thank you so much Kathy! And Deborah, so glad you're pleased with the way it printed. Can't wait to see the throw pillow — great idea.
Ceri, this design is so wonderful. It printed well on the basic combed cotton. I'm thinking a throw pillow is in my oldest granddaughter's future. Sweet design and original.
This is so very darling! love. love. love. !!!

Gosh, how did I not comment on how gorgeous this is already! You had my vote! Fantastic collection!
(Amy I had to delete your comment as it had a broken link, I'm copying your lovely comment here so I don't lose it). Amyloutro says: So bummed that you did not win the contest! Your designs are such a perfect combination of folk and futuristic, with loads of humor and great beauty. Thanks for making me happy with your designs.
Oh thanks so much Lindsay, Victoria and Esther. Your lovely comments mean a lot. x

I meant to say before Ceri but forgot - that I really like that detail from this design that you're using as your profile picture at the moment - it's so charming!

So clever and beautiful! I love it!
This is soooo good love it
fantastic design Ceri ~ I love it!!
oh wow how wonderful - love the pup and kitty and all the intergalactic flowers :)
Thank you Beatrice, Kelly, Su and Jill for your fab comments x. Had to laugh at the thought of trying to get a space helmet on a cat Kelly!
Ceri, this is so so cute and brilliantly illustrated. What fun imagination you have, I'm so pleased there are flowers in distant galaxies too :-)
So delightful! A wonderful fantasy full of delicious details - wishing you the best of luck in the contest.
hahaha, lovely and brilliant! Makes me wish I'd thought of it, but even if I had I wouldn't have pulled it off half so convincingly and beautifully! Retro AND Space AND Scandinavian, and convincing in all three ways! And I love the spacesuited cat (boy, getting a helmet on a cat must have been an adventure in and of itself!)
Such a clever idea! And so nicely done too!! Good luck!
Another lovely clutch of comments to wake up to! Thank you so so much Lynn, Katie, Boo, Andrea, Ashley (again!), Beesocks, Helene and Candy! I really appreciate your kind support.
So lovely, the background pattern is so subtle but just adds to the overall gorgeousness!
gorgeous and adorable interpretation of the theme :)
I have to comment again - I was at the cottage this weekend with friends and was showing them your pattern because it is so awesome and everyone was ooing and ahhing :)
Fab design! Love your unique interpretation!
What a delightful take on the theme! Such fun, and beautifully executed! Good luck in the contest Ceri!

Absolutely fabulous! I agree - I predict ( and sincerely hope) this will do great!
Wow! Thank you so much Jill, Sara, Vannina, Stephanie, Rebel and Rhonda. Lovely to read your comments this morning! x
The folk art style looks right at home in this dreamy space fantasy! This would be a charming print to use for decor items in a child's room!
Gorgeous design, Ceri. All the details are lovely. Great idea, too.
