So, all has been a bit quiet over here as I have been beginning to prepare for the Magdalen Road Christmas market in Exeter, it’s on December 6th so I haven’t got that long before I need to have things ready! I’m doing it with my friend Laurel from Arrietty who has a stall there every year. Laurel has been knitting up some soft and lovely lambswool into beautiful patterns and she has kindly donated me a few bits for creature making:
I used Laurel’s lambswool, linen and felt and the little bear cubs aren’t too big, they look like little totems.
Im also working on some dinos and trying out some embroidery, I like the little touches of detail. As well as being on sale at the Magdalen Road market on the 6th, they are available in my Etsy shop. I’m sure they would make lovely Christmas presents, remember it’s great to shop handmade if you can, support small businesses and avoid mass production. Everyone wins!
