Honda Made in Britain Style Competition

A few months ago I entered my Custard Cream Cushions into Honda's facebook based Made in Britain: Style Competition. Aiming to promote homespun British design, the competition highlighted the fact that despite overseas manufacture has become commonplace for so many companies- that a lot of excellent British design (including various models of Honda Cars) are made right here in the UK- which is definitely a good thing!

Anyhoo- after the deadline of the competition was moved back due to the volume of entrants, I was really excited to find out last night that my cushions had been shortlisted as finalists! There are 28 other shortlisted entries including the work of two other Dundee locals: 2011 DJCAD Jewellery graduate Roisin Connolly and vintage-inspired maker Cissyface Vintage. What an abundance of talent Dundee holds!

In other news- thank you to everyone who left me a nice comment, tweeted or blogged about my "Sugared Alan" biscuits inspired by this week's challenge on The Apprentice. I thoroughly enjoyed last nights show (mainly as it was all about biscuits)- however I'm still waiting for ASDA to get in touch with their six-figure offer for exclusivity on my biscuit idea!
