It must be the week for discovering cool new things. Today I discovered the awesomeness of the Plotter - a type of printer traditionally used to print architectural plans. It differs from a normal printer in that it uses a mechanical arm with a pen attached to draw lines and colour in fills, much like a human does. But why is it so cool? Because it's CHEAP, that's why! I got two A0 size prints done (841mm × 1189mm) for $4.40 each! That's crazy cheap in my mind. I'm using the prints to get a sense of the scale of my patterns before they go onto fabric:
'geese' and 'japanese garden' - any suggestions for better names? Hehe.
On a side note, the other day I frightened a poor woman who was walking down the street when I shouted out and pointed at her - she was wearing one of my blue dot necklaces! I couldn't help it - I've never come across a stranger wearing my stuff before and it was a reflex reaction. She'd bought it from our local giftwares shop, so it's not as coincidental as someone who'd bought it off the net. But still.
