Hi, Its been a while since I last blogged. I have been working on more new designs & still working on something that’s a secret and I am still unable to share it with anybody 🙂
I have loved showing guests that visit how I design on my laptop, it still makes me smile when they say they thought I was playing on Facebook & cant believe how complicated the design programme seems but are amazed at how a sketch turns into a design 🙂 I have done a lot of test stitching designs at the shop & you never know when you pop in I may be working on something new.
I made some more cushions using fabrics from NEXT, Harris Tweed & also a new Black Watch Tartan from Glen Elgin. Tomorrow In the studio I will be sewing Owl, Stag & pheasant cushions so I can then start on more Squirrel, hares & wolves again.
I have also been making many more goodies using Harris Tweed including 15 different designs on greeting cards which are ideal for framing after use, 9 of them are my own unique designs that are not available anywhere else & I will not release the designs for digital download until after September & some I will not release at all, I have made more bookmarks and now have a lovely variety of designs, Mug Rugs, coaster sets & the Mug Warmers have also been topped up along with Harris Tweed hearts & Needle sets. I sold out of all the books I had so they are on my to do list.
Now not forgetting the little ones I have been playing hard making some goodies for them as well. Here are a few of my makes but I have many more in the studio, including Dinosaur masks, Pencil Toppers, Games, Dolls & felt guns, tartan purses & bags & jewellery & stationary.
If my toys and gifts are made of felt this is toy quality Felt which is thicker than the normal felt as this is the only felt that will pass the CE safety tests that I have to do before selling any children’s toys.
The Fairy Homes including Mushroom houses all have CE tested battery candles in them which has a screw in battery so your little ones will not be able to open the battery base.
Have a great week xxx
