Giveaway!!

Oh dear, I really seem to be neglecting my blog at the moment, can you see the cobwebs and dust gathering in the corners. I'm happy to say it's becasue I have been very busy in the studio working on some new lines of work. Here are a few:

Afra is my latest monster bag. I've tried to improve the shape and style of my bags and I think Afra is an improvement on her predecessors, she has a nice chunky handle and a magnetic clasp, and is made from natural grey merino. I've listed Afra in my Etsy shop. The price of my monster bags has gone up quite a bit as they really do take a long time to make and I'm going to have them available for wholesale at the BCTF in April.

I've also been working on these little heart brooches (as it's February). They are needle felted from Norwegian wool, I just love the colours.

And finally, I have re designed my felted flower brooch kits. Last week I supplied some to the York Quilt Museum and Gallery, they have some beautiful felted tunics exhibited at the moment which are well worth a visit. I've also listed some on folksy and etsy. As promised I'm going to give two kits to two lucky blog readers, just leave a comment and I'll draw two winners at random on Friday the 12th of February.

Hi,

I just landed on your blog by accident and must say that I really like the stuff you make. The monster bags are great. I've never tried felting but certainly would like to try it.
Please put my name in the pot for the drawing and maybe I'll get to try felting very soon.

Thanks for sharing
