Felt Pictures, Textile Jewellery, Scottish Gifts and The Handmade Show!

The weeks are rushing by as we head through autumn and The Handmade Show is this Sunday the 17th of November!
I have been busy making a selection of new textile and resin jewellery in lovely deep blues, some of which I have added to my Etsy shop.

New felt brooches include the leaf shapes above in mixed merino and silk fibres. The bird brooches are made with Harris tweed and I have different motifs including treble clefs, thistles and hearts.

I also have a selection of these Treble Clef Brooches available. Makes a nice gift for a musician, singer or music teacher!

My range of printed gift items featuring my artwork is starting to run low. I tend to restock in the Spring so if you have your eye on anything shown here, be aware that there are only a few left.

I've also been working on some original felt pieces including this picture

Inspired by the coast around Rosbeg near Ardara, I wanted to capture the light and sky as well as the headland, rocks and beach. I used a variety of fibres to create the effects I wanted including some fabulous had dyed Shetland fibre I got in Aberdeen earlier this year.

These two cottage pictures both feature hand dyed fibres I sourced at Woolfest and Loch Nesss Knit Fest this year. I love meeting the dyers in person and getting my hands on unusual fibres that add texture and colour to my work.

I'll have more of my Textile Trinket Boxes available on Etsy by Tuesday 19th November. There are a few on there just now but I plan to make more this week.

So you can see all of this in person at The Handmade Show this Sunday the 17th November. It's held in the foyer and Norrie Miller Studio inside Perth Concert Hall, Mill Street, Perth PH1 5HZ  from 10.30 - 4.30 and it's FREE to get in. 

Don't forget that my 2020 Calendars are still available.

The Calendars feature a different print for each moth plus a whole calendar page to write on. Prints can be framed after use.
