I’ve made my cat and dog a small quilt each for Christmas from our old t-shirts. Minnow was on hers while it still had pins in it! Here is Brock’s (dog’s):
I’ve just finished these commissioned cushions. Client had Harris tweed offcuts and wanted cushions that reminded her of her holiday on the island.
These are lovely @Beesandblossoms. I love the embroidered details. They’re very tactile

I had an illustration published in this month’s SCOOP magazine. It’s a magazine for children aged 8-12 and the article I illustrated was all about eating insects and the future of food production. It was fun to receive my copy through the post. Cricket sandwiches anyone?
Most items I make end up in my shop, but I must admit I love making/ wearing handmade socks !!! so when I get a chance to make , these never end up for sale ! I like to make on two needles as DPN’s just make my hands ache ! Perfect for this weather !
This was a recent commission I was asked to do. I used cross-stitch for the lettering which I really enjoyed as I hadn’t done any for a few years.
I have just finished these. They have been made using stones from an old brooch that my customer has had in a draw for 30years. Hopefully they will get more wear now.
I’ve recently learned how to knot pearls (my business goal of the year) and have made these for myself as I actually had 2 matched strands. Black/peacock pearls knotted on amethyst silk. I wear them everyday and am looking forward to doing so at fairs when I’ll have knotted necklaces ready to sell.
Unicorn felted bowl / tray . A request for my daughters friends unicorn-loving daughter!! Something a bit out of my comfort zone , but I’m ok with the result and hope it fits requirement !!!
