Ok, so I'm a tiny bit late, but I'm back to it now. Lots of work to be done now, ready for fairs starting again in March. This week I've been cutting out and stitching together lots and lots of small felt budgies to make brooches out of and I have to say, I LOVE them to bits! I love them as if they were my own children! I've also been working on a silver version of these budgie brooches today in my workshop. I'm not bowled over by the silver version yet, but with a little bit of practice and tweaks here and there, I'm sure the silver ones will grow on me too. I think tomorrow might be another afternoon spent in the workshop, testing out ideas and soldering like mad.
I desperately want the silver budgies to work!!
Also today I've noticed my small space on the sock fair website appear. Thats always exciting, seeing your name and work on someone else website. check out the link here if you wish!
See you soon!
