Recently I was asked to make some brooches in lime on a chocolate background. Last Friday at the felt group and I begged a bit of brown wool and made the felt, and with my newly dyed velvet, I made the two shapes I was asked for but being me, I had to go a bit further.
Then further still.
I never do things by halves.
I used up all the chocolate brown felt.
Now, what do you do when you are up to your neck in work for three big orders and are having sleepless nights worrying about whether you'll finish in time and your house is a tip?
When you have a little visitor
who has a little rain coat?
You mend it .
Then you think...hmmmm....
not too difficult to copy in Harris Tweed.
Then you get the model...
who is, shall we say, underwhelmed.
For a little dog who is elderly, can hardly see and hardly hear, and doesn't move about much,
she is incredibly difficult to photograph.
She isn't impressed.
