This mosaic is a 'hotch potch' of some of my favourite pics/creations of 2009 (at least the ones I could find on Flickr!). A mixture of Harris Tweed, landscapes, embroidery, softies . . . oh, and I must have been feeling hungry as there's some herring and potatoes in the corner!There appear to be four bumblebees in my random selection - I've no idea what that's all about, but I seem to like 'em!
2009 was a busy year in terms of new designs and just trying to keep up to speed with everything in the world of 'crafty' business enterprise in general! This year I plan to slow down a bit and concentrate on more 'one-off' designs, have some fun with fabric (I'm thinking of returning to doll-making but more in terms of 'art-dolls' which I find very exciting!), perhaps work on slightly smaller pieces, and in general make life a little easier for myself!
My own website is back up and running - hooray! I have a couple of new ideas for products, but mostly I will keep it much as it is with a variety of Harris Tweed 'gift ideas' on offer. My two Etsy shops are in various stages of transition - Tweed Plush is in the process of being restocked this month as I want to keep it looking fresh with some new products rather than continuing with the entire selection of last year's stock (I may have a sale however of older stock!). I hope to keep a variety of some of my favourite items eg. bag charms, etc. in stock. Tweed Delights has a small variety of home decor gifts as before and more to follow I hope - I would like to keep this shop as traditional as possible for those who enjoy the pure, unadulterated beauty of Harris Tweed! I know there are a number of you out there!
OK, let the crafting commence - I'm up for it, are you? :)
