Open Studios North Fife 2015 on 2nd, 3rd and 4th May

I'll start this blog post off with a nice relaxing sunset taken on the Isle of Skye the week before last. 

Yes with just a few weeks to go until Open Studios, we still managed to sneak in a quick trip to Skye as we have done the past few years. It's such a great time to go. No midgies, pleasant Spring sunshine and not too busy either.

We had a great time and even though we've been to Skye a few times now we still found things to do that we hadn't done before.

One thing I'd wanted to do for a long time was take the boat trip over to Loch Coruisk from Elgol.
We took my mugs along for a wee photo shoot on the beach.
As you can see there are now six designs available.

Below is the latest design and will be available from me during Open Studios this year. My Mugs, Coasters and Notebooks are also available from three different gift shops around Scotland.
Little Thistle in Dunfermline
Wild Thistle in Braemar as well as at Braemar Castle Shop and 

Also new for Open Studios this year are a range of printed cushions.

Thistle Bothy Cushion
Available to order here 

Other designs will also be available soon.

I also have some new heart shaped Pendants and Earrings that I am working on just now.

Pendants £24

Earrings £18

I have even managed to make some alternatives to purple and turquoise!

All of these will make their debut at Open Studios and be available online from around the 6th of May.

I've made lots of bracelets and rings as well.
Bracelets £20 and Rings £18

This week I am finishing off a batch of these Felt Heart Pendants in Blues and Turquoise. 
I also plan to do something with this hand dyed silk but I'm not sure what yet. It's gorgeous just as it is!

Staying on a purple theme, I have this landscape to finish.

 I finished this little one last week. It's 15 x 15 cm and is also available as a printed cushion.

So it is going to be an incredibly busy two weeks now. Hope to see some of you there.
I am at my usual venue, 64 Commercial Road, Ladybank.
