LOOK! These are the wonderful arm warmers and hat that Freyalyn made me for my birthday trade! She dyed the wool herself, as well as designing and knitting them, and they just exceeded my expectations. Not only are they beautiful to look at, but the wool is wonderfully soft too. I am SO pleased with them, they are just exactly what I wanted. Freyalyn sells her wool in her Etsy shop here.
And it's Christmas sale time! I have a stand at Christmart, in Chagford Jubilee hall this weekend, along with many other wonderful artists (you will find Terri Windling, Rima Staines, Virginia Lee, David Wyatt here, as well as many others). It's a chance to buy some work direct from the artist, and do some Christmas shopping! For those of you who live too far away, I having a special Christmas sale in my Etsy shop to coincide with it. 20% off everything there until the end of the weekend. To get this, just enter the code CHRISTMAS2010 at the checkout, and your discount will automatically be taken off.
I've been busy framing tiny studies , and I loved my daughter's owls so much that I have sewn a batch more, with lavender in their tummies. If these don't sell I shall hang them on my Christmas tree this year. In fact, it's tempting not to sell them for that very reason - an owl tree would be a lovely thing!
