March Update

Well this time last year we were having an unseasonable warm spell. This year we have blizzards and freezing temperatures that  have me wearing half a dozen layers of clothes and the heating in my work space up full blast!

Lots going on here though with two fairs coming up in April and Open Studios North Fife the first weekend in May.

I have had some of my most popular felt pictures made into Open Edition Giclee Prints in different sizes.

Vibrant Hills is available in two sizes
15 x 15 cm in a 25 x 25 cm Mount at £30
25 x 25 cm in a 35 x 35 cm Mount at £40

Island Cottage and Boat is also available in the sizes above.

Harvey is available in the 15 x 15 cm size and 10 x 10 cm

These small 10 x 10 cm Prints are really cute and at just £12, they make a lovely gift and are easily framed.

Available here

New cards in stock include 'Island Cottage and Boat', 'Cottage By The Stream' and 'Wee Coo By The Loch'.

Cards all £2.50 each

Sets of four or six are also available

'Home For Supper' is also back in stock as well as 'Harbour Houses, Boat and Fish'

All cards available here

My Mum has been helping me out by sewing the beads and brooch bars onto my brooches for me. I make my brooches from my own handmade felt and genuine Harris Tweed. I usually sit of an evening sewing them up but Mum has taken on that job and I have to say her sewing is impeccable! She even had two handy little dishes on hand to keep the beads safe while sewing and gave one to me too.

These will be coming with me to Falkland Craft Market on Saturday 6th April, 10 - 4pm in Falkland Community Hall.
You can also find some for sale in my shop here

Our Open Studios 2013 Brochures are now available. You can collect a free copy from public places like libraries and art galleries all over Fife, Tayside, Edinburgh, Dundee, Angus and beyond. You can also download it free from our website and browse all the artists taking part online as well.

Hope Spring comes soon and that we will perhaps see you at one of these upcoming events.


  1. I'm so in love with your work;) youre such a great artist! Greetings from Janine from Germany

  2. You've been quite busy, Aileen! I've said this before, and I must say it again - how you manage your time is amazing and so inspiring to me. You create so many beautiful things - all of which take time to create, of course. And then you have the craft fairs, which also takes time, and then you have your home life and family responsbilities to tend to, as well. How you get all this accomplished, and beautifully so, is to be congratulated. Fair play to you for all that you do!

    I don't know where my comment has gone to, but I'd left one for you about a week (probably closer to two weeks ago) about the beautiful notebook that I purchased from you. It's wonderful, and I just wanted to say thank you - the price was so reasonable, the delivery was so quick, and the notebook itself is a joy to both look at and of course, to write and journal in. Thank you so much, Aileen, for all the beauty you bring to all you do. - June

    ps - Hope you and your family had a lovely Paddy's Day yesterday.

  3. All the prints look lovely, and I'm really impressed by the colours of the boat ones!

    Also, the brooches look amazing, so glad your mum is helping you!

    I'm sure all the craft fairs are gonna be a success! Hoping for a better weather, tho!
