I got them all cellophane wrapped and ready to go! I'm just waiting on my other stock at the moment, which I am super excited for! In the mean time, you can purchase my greetings card from either my Etsy or my Folksy stores.

Growing up in various regions of this little island, I came to find it a sensible idea to always take an umbrella with me, just in case. Because even if it looks sunny, and the skies seem clear, you never can tell what lies ahead. I felt like it was an appropriate metaphor for life too- if you always have it in your mind that (although you hope for the best) things could go horribly wrong, I don't think you'll be as upset when they do, and pleasantly surprised when they don't. I guess that I just have an optimistic pessimistic view on life, but I feel like it serves me well, I'll just have to keep all my fingers and toes crossed that my stall experiences are mostly pleasant ones!

Well, he's WRONG because just about every Scottish person that I've asked has told me, not only that they'd heard of it, but that it's very common up here too. So I win another one.
Although this is just about done, I am still considering making the eyes a tad lighter to show up against those black feathers.

I'm getting closer! Here's a new greetings card that I've designed, I've got a few more to go, and then hopefully I should have my collection in a more acceptable capacity to send on to publishers/ retail to take my images.
I received an ink stamp today, so I've made a start on some 500 bags that I've got to get stamped up for the trade fair next month.

I designed this pattern for a friend's birthday, as she wants to make a nightie out of it and said that she couldn't find any fabric with (red) squirrels on it anywhere. She also wanted foxes, but personally, I like my woodland animals (unless they're the same size in real life) split up, so I made one design with just the squirrels, which I am CONSIDERING turning into cushions, if I can feel convinced that they will sell. I might might might also create a separate design with just the foxes too, but that's when I've got everything else that I need done and dusted.
Eventually they will be available here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/KitchenCrawlies?ref=hdr_shop_menu

So I'm designing some fabric as a gift to a friend. She wants red squirrels and foxes, the only problem is that I'm having to learn to draw foxes- look at their anatomy etc. I've got all the squirrels and little bits and bobs done... just the foxes...

A lovely craft fair organiser has offered me a free table, so, come next month (I'm still waiting on funding to order stock) I will be (assuming my stock arrives in time) doing one, either in Buchanan Galleries, or the Thistle shopping centre in Stirling. Watch this space! You can purchase the tote here
