asking for trouble

Back to work

Felt Flowers

Sorry, it’s been a bit quiet here. Things have been ticking along but nothing major has been getting done. I have just two more weeks of full time work to go and then I can get going on all my exciting projects!

However, I have not been slacking entirely. I’ve just cut out twenty flower shapes out of felt which will soon become new vintage button brooches. I’ve also got five Japanese flower brooches ready to go after that.

A few other things of note:

  • I will have a stall at the Glasgow Craft Mafia Spring Market on March 15th. You can see the lovely bunnytastic poster on my Events page.
  • The West End Craft Fair has sadly been cancelled due to wind damage to the venue but hopefully it will be rescheduled soon.
  • Alistair at Unpopular wrote a nice post about the things he ordered from my shop, along with the photo below. Thanks Alistair!
