Here comes the sun...


We managed to have a barbeque today - yipee! The sun shone long enough for us to expose our legs and put on our shades. There's nothing more relaxing than sitting with friends with a glass of wine (or Mojito cocktail or three) , with the kids entertaining each other and the sausages sizzling. It also gave me the opportunity to get a bit of feedback from The Girls on a couple of new designs I have been working on - all good so watch this space.

Above is a pic of a Baboo bunny, sheep and egg cosy that I posted to my friend Fi yesterday. We haven't seen each other for years and have recently been reunited through a friend getting married. Fi and I went to uni together over 15 years ago. Sitting in our architecture studio at the Edinburgh College of Art, 5 am watching the sun rise over the castle as we frantically tried to finish off models or drawings - did we ever think I would end up knitting sheep? If I was honest with myself at the time then probably the answer would have been 'yes'.

I also posted an order to my new stockist in Edinburgh - the Laurel Gallery on St Stephens Street in Stockbridge. Eleanor has recently opened the gallery having traded in Scottish Art on the Internet for a number of years. I met her at a small fair I attended which wasn't particularly great for any of the exhibitors due to the lack of customers, but it just goes to show you never know who will be looking at your work and what it may lead to. So good luck to Eleanor with her new venture.

I am now drastically low on stock, which is a great opportunity for me to try out some new designs - and make a few more sheep!

An Edinburgh stockist! That's great! It just goes to show how worth it it is to do craft events whenever possible - you never know where it might lead. I don't suppose you have any bunnies in stock? My friend just had a baby girl and a My Baboo bunny would be a great gift! Look forward to catching up at the September Wee Green Market!
