Hi everyone, I'm safely back from my trip to England, full of early Christmas festivities with family and friends, such a lovely time. It was also my sweet niece's 2nd Birthday, I knitted her a little winter doll which she carried around, so I think it was a success! I have not knitted since I was little so it was fun and very relaxing to pick up the needles again. I found this wonderful free knitting pattern from Jean Greenhowe here.
I had a fun time strolling in the rain round the Town where my family lives. I used to walk past these buildings all the time and never really take much notice. But this time I really appreciated them and I'm sure you will like their higglety pigglety nature too!
We went out and got our Christmas Tree yesterday and it's here twinkling prettily by the side of me, oh how I love this time of year. I'll be sure to take some photos to share.
When I left a week ago I had not quite reached 100 Sales in my Etsy store. I was excited about the prospect of reaching this goal having started my illustrations around Christmas time last year. Whilst away the Bears & Friends whizzed past 100 Sales much to my delight. So I've been busy today getting all the orders together and off to the Post Office. THANK YOU to you all for your support, kindness and encouragement over the last year, I really do appreciate everyone of you x
Don't forget if you want any of your goodies to arrive in time for Santa's sack please order before December 11th.
This week I'm busy working on a special commission Bear in a fabulous mohair. Hugs, Catherine x
