Working with the much loved peggy or granny square, depending on which side you butter your toast, I created a few new brooches to adorn winter coats, hats or bags. A two dimensional aspect was reached with the addition of, also much loved, buttons. All one offs and available from my backyard headquarters.
Yesterday was by first day of business and although I had no sales I did have some visitors. Today the weather is not suited to being out and about unless you are a duck or very keen.
When the rain did ease up a wee while ago I had a visit from a friend who I was printing some Carterton cushions for. They turned out well and are going to going into her new gallery in Carterton called Red Moa. It will be opening soon and will be fabulous!
It was fun yesterday setting up the shop as being inside is a bit of a novelty after years of doing outside markets and having to contend with all sorts of weather. So calm reigns supreme in my small but perfectly formed retail outlet.
