Good morning kitty cats and don’t worry, the title does not mean I’ve taken up boxing!
This lunar New Year ushers in the year of the tiger, so it seemed the perfect time to add a little striped person to my range!
Let me introduce Tai Shan (named after the wonderful Tai Shan Scherenberg from Landscape/portrait artist of the year)….
What a perfect design to show the switch from plastics, Tai Shan features an organic cotton yarn, recycled plastic bottle stuffing and these new eyes…
The embroidered eyes take a little longer but I love the freedom they will bring to colour choice and of course no plastic!
Little Tai Shan needed a playmate so this is the design for his sister…
I’m excited to say that I have a custom order for Toko, and that’s about all I can say as it’s a surprise gift…….
I managed to finish a personal project before orders started coming in, this gorgeous Christmas stocking from a pattern published in Mollie Makes by the super talented Sewing The Seeds Of Love…
It’s going to be our St Nicholas day stocking, it will save me wedging pressies into shoes 😂
I’ve been taking a course to finalise my book idea, so Welcome to Darcey’s Wood is definitely happening, and the wood remains our happy place!
Finally, im looking to upgrade my art skills!
Freddy is my usual style but I’d like to try a more detailed style and to that end,I’ve put myself on the waitlist for Bonnie Snowdons art academy – I’m so excited!
First on the list for the new style is my lovely Jasper cat….
I think that’s enough to keep me busy for this month!
