Easter weekend dawned bright and blue and sunny and I was out with the Homestyle Argyll girls at the Tayvallich Inn with our first pop-up shop.
There was no missing us underneath Catherine's bright purple gazebo! I do enjoy displaying our wares together, although our work is very different individually, we are able to create a harmonious collectionnn.
I have recently started to make cards to tke to an event in May, and thought I would put them out this weekend as a trial run...
Small, slightly abstract landscape images, painted on fabric with some stitched detailling, then mounted onto 100% recycled paper cardstock. I have made a conscious decision not to buy plastic cellophane bags (even compostable ones) but printed a small paper wrapper to keep card and envelope together.
Some more debut pieces, a seasidey muscles and scallops appliqued lantern & a printed and painted spring snowdrops one.
Tomorrow it's back to lamp & lampshade making for my exhibition which starts next week.
And I have already started counting down to the Kirsty Allsopp Handmade Fair at Ragley Hall in Warwickshire in May!
