What have I been up to over the last few weeks ? eerrrmm well , making stock ! Lucy and I have decided the date for our first open studio event , unfortunately am going to keep you in suspense for a little longer with regards to the date as we want to do a big announcement very very soon . As you can imagine there is smoke coming of my fingers , I want there to be lots of handmade goodies that are made with love for people to look at and hopefully buy . However we are also still sorting fixtures and fittings and I have bought some much needed equipment that is essential for the production of my creations . This week my budget has allowed me to buy a much needed iron and ironing board , so with my studio Buddie in mind ( as she would have to spend a lot of time looking at it up) I bought this and it met with approval !! Very Lucy colours don't you think !
I have had lots of fun playing with colour this week and I have had a thing for spotty and stripey legs which are soooo sweet .......
Friday evening I sat planning a new make which I plan to start this week and so I started putting little fabric collections together .
On Thursday evening I had a bit of a spur of the moment make , crochet bunting . This is it blocked out ...
Today I have had a little break from working as I am working 7 days a week at the moment . We had a little family jaunt out to Harrogate , we love Sunday shopping in Harrogate it's so relaxed and best of all it's got a new Wool shop . Leeds based 'baa ram ewe' has opened a branch in Harrogate , yayyy !! This has hit my happy button big style . Very easy to find ( even though I went in the wrong direction ) it's only a stones throw away from Betty's Tea rooms . Check out their web page for directions www.baaramewe.co.uk

I am looking forward to using these muted tones and matching them up with co ordinating fabrics .
