It's a big weekend of crafty goodness ahead! Tomorrow night (Friday) I'll be at the first BrisStyle indie Twilight Market of the year in King George Square from 5-9pm. Really looking forward to catching up with my fellow BrisStylettes to see what fabulous new handmade wares they've come up with over the break.

Then on Saturday morning Sam and I will be teaching crochet at Brown Owls. We'll be doing washcloths for the absolute crochet beginner and granny squares for those feeling a little more adventurous. 

How about you? Are you gettin' crafty this weekend?

sausage dog embroidery wall art

Finished this sweet custom order on the weekend, it's always a pleasure to create something slightly different to my usual product line.

He's so cute on my wall it's tough to part with him, I reckon he would make a lovely addition to any kid's room, especially in different colour combinations. What do you think? Should I test it out in the shop?

A few little pics to catch you up on my craftiness since the Christmas rush died down. Looking forward to a February full of custom orders and if time permits maybe even some new products or at the very least new colour ranges and fabric options (if you're after something tailor made now's the time!)

What's going on in your space? Did you know you can share it here :)
