Getting there with the website!

It's so time consuming! But we're making slow progress, got some words, taken some photos. Hope to go live early July. Watch this space!

Oh, and Ludlow market went well. Sold the purple tunic as seen on Florence a few days ago to a lovely lady, I'm sure it will look great on her! I'd love pictures of people wearing the things I have made.

Last-but-one commission

Joseph's jumper, modelled by Florence. A friend wanted a jumper like this but the pattern we had was for fine yarn and we wanted aran weight to be snuggly in winter. Using school maths I made up a pattern from several different ones and came up with this.
The latest commission was for a little rainbow cardi as a christening present, but I forgot to photograph it!

Phew, that was busy!

I've just done a marathon 2 weeks of markets with 4 markets a week. Too much really as Colin can't do any feltmaking as he's childcare officer, and I am so tired! We have tried some local markets - Ludlow and Bridgnorth - which have been really good, and finally took the plunge and did the Fair in the Square in Shrewsbury last Saturday (Made in Shropshire), which has been our best market this year. I have had three commissions for woolly jumpers as a result of the markets so things are looking up!
Looking forward to a quieter week, then off to Tissington again in the Peak district for a two day craft fair.
