Lemons and Teapots!

After a sunny weekend I've been encouraged to start on a new Bear using the most luxuriously gorgeous wavey soft mohair (you can tell I like it!) in a sweet lemon yellow. His pattern has just been cut out and I'm excited to bring him to life. I have also been doing lots of drawing, I have so many ideas for illustrations swimming around in my imagination I have to remind myself to focus on some rather than a bit of all of them! I'm having to politely say to my characters, one at a time please ;-) I am currently working on some new sets of Art including some inspired by the Wee Bunnies I brought to life a while back, think High Tea with the prettiest china! So lots to look forward to revealing!

In the meantime here are some more photos from my holiday in Scotland, this area was near Glen Coe, an amazing valley. Our hotel was right on a Loch side, with our room's balcony looking out over the water with beautiful sunsets. I hope you enjoy a glimpse into these happy moments.

Hugs, Catherine x
