Keepsake Boxes and 2022 Calendar

I've had quite a productive summer compared to the last 18 months and I'm delighted to be back in my 'making zone'! The pandemic is by no means over yet and so many things are not and may never be 'back to normal' but I seem to be able to focus better and actually get stuff done!

I've been developing some existing designs and added these little latch hook clasps to my little Keepsake Boxes.

The latches are not just decorative but actually work! I think they are so cute and love the way they keep the lid securely closed.

I have brass ones on the boxes in rustic shades.


And silver tone ones on the boxes in blues and purples.

My boxes are made with my own handmade felt on the lid and Harris Tweed or Scottish Tweed for the sides.

Keepsake Box £38.95

I have a few of the 5 cm and 7 cm sizes available with the latches and plan to make the larger sizes over the next few weeks.

Also new in my Etsy shop this month is my 2022 Calendar!

I know, most of us are still trying to process 2020 but it will be 2022 in just over 4 months time!

My calendar features my most recent felt picture on the front. The puffin was inspired by puffins we saw at Duncansby Head on a trip to Caithness in July.

I've also used the puffin as the image for July.

I just had to use my Bluebell Woods image for May.

And my tribute to Fungie the Dingle Dolphin for June.

And I decided on a colourful little robin for December.

Other images include sunsets, boats, cottages and of course sheep.

2022 Wall Calendar £12.95

I have one event planned so far for November. 

The Handmade Show in Perth Concert Hall will be on 

Sunday 21st November. 

10.30 - 4.30pm


 Mill Street, Perth, Scotland. PH1 5HZ

It's so long since I exhibited at a show that I'm not even sure where my table cloths etc are! It will be great to be out seeing people face to face again though and I'm working on building stock already.
