Good evening – I am so pleased to tell you my etsy shop is officially OPEN! Please click on the link, pay a visit and let me know what you think, thank you x
I am currently working on setting up an etsy shop, something I have wanted to do for a long time. I hope to have it up and running by the end of this week!
I am so happy to tell you that I won the Design a Scarf competition with San Francisco based textile and fashion design company Indigo Handloom! It’s all thanks to my wonderful family, friends and weave colleagues who voted for me on Facebook. I am delighted to have won this amazing opportunity and look forward to seeing the completed scarf when it will be for sale this summer!
I am so happy my design which I entered to the Indigo Handloom scarf competition has been chosen as one of the four finalists. I would love to win the chance to have my design woven by master weavers in India, gain wider exposure of my work and have my scarf design sold via the Indigo Handloom website. This is a fantastic opportunity for me and I would really appreciate if you could vote for me, all you have to do is click the link to my design on Facebook and ‘like’ it! Please feel free to share it – the voting is completely down to Facebook likers.
Many many thanks.
Here is my original sample,
I have a new warp wound, stretched and on the loom to be threaded. It will be woven into table mats – something my cousin requested over a year ago which I am finally getting around to doing! I will make one for Julie and I will be selling the others – Julie’s request was very simple – something with Orange, which is one of my most favourite colours. Perfect.
At the moment there are some sad and difficult things going on. I am missing weaving and the therapeutic feeling of focus and motivation I get from it. I am trying to get myself motivated to work on some new ideas I have, I know I will feel better once I start. But I am day dreaming about travel and the good memories I have from our trip to south east Asia last year. The colours, the smells, the people and the way of life all create happy thoughts.
I want to share some photos of what I am daydreaming about.
Do you ever struggle to find the energy and motivation to focus on your work?
