Why it's been quiet...

I haven't listed anything new in the shops for a while becasue I've been busy with this lot. Forty flower brooches and ten soap stone are now on their way to Italy, phew! I've now got a couple of custom orders I'm working on then I plan to make a whole batch of products for the shops. I have lots of ideas for a coordinated range using natural dyes which I'm very excited about. I'll be showing sneak peeks on here before they are listed so keep a look out.


Did you know today is the International Day of Felt, our region of the IFA has worked on a project for this event which will be displayed at the IFA stand at The Knitting and Stitching Show in Harrogate.

To celebrate this day of felt I'm going to offer a little give away either today (or tomorrow if I don't get the item finished in time), so please call back soon.

Oh, and one last thing. I am debating whether to sell the instructions to make my flower brooches in a PDF format in my etsy shop, would anyone be interested?

Now I know about the felt display at Harrogate, all my doubts about going this year are dispelled.

I love your brooches so much I am inspired to make some flowers (different from yours of course) to go on my new bag. Felted flowers really are wonderful things aren't they?

your flowers are very different, more sculptural. Your work stands out from all the other felting flowers!
