Giveaway closed, and a little experimental project . . . I'm winging it!

OK - Giveaway time is up :)  Thank you so much for entering it! -  it's been a  fun  way to ease my way back into my blog and to say thanks for still reading, even if my posts  have been a bit sporadic this year :)  I love using my blog to mull over new creative ideas as much as anything else - it's my outlet for creative thought, so thanks for listening to my incessant drivel, hehe!  I will announce two winners (one for each purse) by Monday at the latest : )  Good Luck!

Talking of new creative ideas, here's the current one . . . . . . a little doodle of a Scottish terrier to be magically transformed into the basis of a new knitted colour-work idea . . . 


some  paw prints as an additional design feature  . . . .


. . . my first very basic original design for a  knitted colour work project - bonkers!, yes completely, but when you get a notion to try something you've got to just go with it . . . 


Do you think it will work?  I have no idea either LOL :)  I'm having a go and seeing how it will look - this is fun though!  I just traced my drawing onto the squares of the graph paper . . . no, I don't really know what I'm doing - but that's the fun part!


I'm enjoying stamping my new 'handmade' logo onto craft bags and anything else I come across - if you stand still for too long I might stamp your forehead with 'handmade by Tweed Delights' - watch out, hehe!!

This week I've started on some new tweedie-work and added this matryoshka doll to my Etsy shop . . .


More to come hopefully . . . I'm still adjusting myself to my new (Linux) operating system on my laptop -  talk about a learning curve, I didn't know I had to become a computing genius to run my crafts business!  I'm sure I'll get used to it . . . . . hmmmmmmm :-/

Later, gaters - I'll be back by Monday to announce a winner - I'm off to knit up my little Scottie dog doodle, I hope to have something to show you - byeeee!

Have you remembered to use knitters' graph paper for your cute dog (hope you don't mind me mentioning this or he'll turn out a funny shape). Vera
