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.
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.
