A whole month without blogging - yes I do have a decent explanation though, honest! After much head-scratching, soul-searching (well, just a little bit!), humming and ahhhh . . . ing, and all manner of other metaphors, I have finally decided to lay 'Tweed Delights' to rest. Eventually the retail side of my tweedie crafting antics has gradually petered out, just as my interest in a much wider range of crafts eg. crochet, embroidery, sock-knitting, fair isle knitting, etc. has expanded.
So no more 'Tweed Delights' - my website has gone, but I now hope to continue with my crafting and blogging. The journey continues, but in a slightly different direction! Perhaps I will now get time to line this tweed jacket I made over 20 years ago - it has hung in my wardrobe all that time (how's that for a W.I.P. - work in progress, hehe). I'd also love to make another pair of these Egyptian Socks by Nancy Bush, which I knitted last Winter - I'm thinking another pair in red and white this time - they were such a joy to make : )
So no more online selling, but lots more personal crafting to come I hope :)
October Holidays seem a long way ago now, but we enjoyed ours anyway. A lovely visit to Glasgow preceded by a chilled out week at home, being vaguely domesticated. Scones, crochet, and big mugs of tea . . . .
Well, must dash now and catch up with eight years of housework! Yikes, yes, eight years since Tweed Delights started - where did that time go?? :) Anyway, I'm pleased how things have evolved and I'm looking forward to a smooth transaction from craft retail to . . . . well, more crafting adventures - wherever they take me! I'll keep you update here at any rate :) :)
(I have accrued a huge amount of crafty skills over the past few years - my thoughts right now are how to maintain and adapt these skills, to share them perhaps - lots of Tweed Thoughts!)
P.S. A HUGE thankyou to all my lovely customers/friends, over the last few years - you are the BEST! xx
