After a long summer break from making and blogging, it's back to work now with preparations for all my upcoming events this Autumn!
I had this idea for a felted hare picture back in June and finally got time to make it once our schools went back mid August.
The original measures 20 x 20 cm and comes complete with mount and frame. The outer edge of the frame measures 36 x 36 cm.
One of the reasons for making the picture was to have it printed into cards and notebooks.
I also had it printed onto cushions!
Other new cushion designs include Gardener's Cottage and Drying Day at The Bothy.
The originals of both of these pictures are still available in my Etsy shop here
Other new card designs include Gardener's Cottage
Aurora and Stars
Dragonflies and Seathrift
Drying Day at The Bothy
and Winter's Garden.
The cards measure 12.5 x 12.5 cm and are all available individually at £2.50 each or as a set of six at £12

My cards and jewellery are also available at The Rowan Tree Gift Shop in Falkland, right on the main street, opposite the palace.
Staring on Saturday 1st October, I have six events lined up for Autumn so far.
I'm particularly looking forward to Perth Festival of Yarn on Sunday 2nd October.
Other vendors include
Blue Moon Indigo/The Border Tart,
Mothy and the Squid,
My Mama Knits,
Eva Christie Hand Knitting,
The Queen of Purls

So I have been busy building up my stock of Felt Sheep Jewellery and Textile Trinket Boxes.
I also have my 2017 Calendar out.
The calendar features 12 different images, one for each month plus a whole calendar page per month to write on.
For daily updates on new makes etc from me, I am now using Instagram more often. I am @aileenclarkecrafts
I'll leave you with a nice sunset we enjoyed while on holiday in Ireland in July. The photo is taken from the very end of the Dingle peninsula, Co Kerry. This is one of my most favourite places to be!
