I have been such a busy bee over the past 7 months, I was invited to attend a huge Christmas craft fair that I also attended last year & took twice as much stock & still came home with empty boxes so since then I have bee crafting almost 8 hours a day & I can say I have had a beano & a spare room full of stock ready to (fingers crossed) Last me through out this years shop season.
I have also been busy back designing, some of the Embroidery Patterns I will be uploading to Etsy so that you can download them & stitch yourself but I am keeping some patterns back so that only I will be the one stitching them.
With so many new designs & patterns & secrets in the pipeline I am looking forward to a very busy crafting year.
Here are some of the new gift cards I have added, I love taking photographs & last year I sold more of my own designs than any other so I have added 16 more new designs.
I love working with Harris Tweed & have used more than ever for this year. The bookmarks shown here I designed a pattern so that my Embroidery Machine sews them out completely for me, I have currently Sheep, Scotty Dogs, Thistles, Belted Galloway & Highland cattle on the designs on xx
These Cushions are all my own design. I have released the Bird of prey as this years 1st download but I am the ONLY person in Dumfries & Galloway that are able to sell them in a shop. I have been asked to release some of my other designs & will do over the next few weeks but not all of them. I want to keep some designs under cover & will only be selling finished products myself xx
Harris Tweed Villages have been added this year, they are not as straight forward as the normal felt ones I sell but I have finally perfected them.
Harris Tweed Lavender hanging hearts & Harris Tweed Broaches. I made these in huge bulk amounts as the Christmas fair showed me they could be again in high demand. These were again designed by myself on the Embroidery machine which will do all the stitching for me & then hand finished.
I have always wanted to try free motion embroidery, so I had a play & even surprised myself how well they turned out. These are really large framed pictures using nothing but Harris Tweed & thread & every one I do is unique. I have done 8 up to now & every time I finish one I can not wait to start the next.
The last picture I am sharing today is a picture I designed on my embroidery machine. It is done completely in one hooping & I can change the size so I can make it automatically fit any size frame. I decided to design some pictures like this as they can stitch out in around 17 minutes & I can sell them a lot less than the unique free motion embroidery ones. I have designed lots more of them all with different scenes to fit in to woodland Forests, Sea & beach themes & will work on some more soon .
Happy Crafting all & hope to see you soon xx
