It's been a busy week - I had a stall at my school's Christmas fair on Saturday which was a complete waste of time as I sold one item. I guess I just cannot compete with a tombola and a lucky dip! Consequently, I have some things left over that were made especially, so they are up for sale here now.
One a brighter note, I four paintings inthe local exhibition last weekend and sold three. Amazing result! Not only that, I won Best in Show as voted for by the public with this picture:
Brilliant, that made my week!

I'm not sure I would wear it on my travels though - this week I have been dodging a small herd of deer while walking the dog. Salukis are hunting dogs and mine can spot a deer at fifty paces - I wouldn't want him mistaking me for one!
Talking of Christmas, can someone stop the clock for a while, I am struggling! Too much work and far too many presents to be bought with no idea of what to get. One year I would like to be ready in October - but I don't think that will ever happen!

Watch out over the coming weeks - I have been commissioned to make a series of tiny knitted animal head trophies along the lines of the stag that I already make. This involves a fair bit of design work, but I think I can handle it - very exciting to be doing something a little different.

Now I have to make the pair of cheeky pugs that will sit on it!
