Happy New Year - I'm so sorry I haven't posted for so long and I do feel that I have neglected my blog but I have been so busy with orders, then Christmas, then more orders - all good of course!
My last post mentioned the Ouseburn Open Studios at Mushroom Works Gallery which I was to participate in - I made around fifty 20cm square pictures for the event and sold about 80% which made me stop and think - 'why don't I make some more and list them in my etsy shop'! So, I have been busy, busy, busy embroidering Scandinavian Birds and Home Sweet Home pictures especially for my on line etsy shop.
Here are a few examples to whet your appetite!
As you may already know, although I embroider most of the time my favourite craft is crochet and over the Christmas period I decided to make some hats, scarves, etc for friends and family. To be honest I design these hats as I go along so you can be assured that no two are ever he same. As I crochet I may decide to change the colour or yarn depending upon mood and to complete each design I make a felt flower brooch to co-ordinate with each hat.
These designs have also been a success and as a result I have had quite a few orders which I have fulfilled. I have also made some extra ones which I have also listed on etsy.
I am in the middle of organising a giveaway as a belated New Year treat so please check back soon for more details.
