Recent Deliveries

Domino brooches at Blossom Street Gallery & Framing

When September comes around it's usually time to do a bit of restocking so I thought you might like to see what's been happening.  

Some domino brooches have zoomed into Blossom Street Gallery & Framing in York

Flower button bracelets now available in Kunsthuis Gallery

and a series of colourful flower button bracelets and felt necklaces have winged their way to Kunsthuis Gallery in Crayke.

Felt necklaces new into Crayke

Both galleries are lovely, so do go and have a look. They are places to seek out whether in the city (Blossom Street Gallery in York) or the country (Kunsthuis Gallery in Crayke) and either way you'll have a great time.

Later this month I shall be off to The Ropewalk in Barton upon Humber with a big delivery so more excitment coming soon!

Fantasy Fish - Sales of the Summer

Fantasy Fish proving popular

After the Fantasy Fish Yarnstorm was taken down, all the fish whirled in the washer, went "online" and then got packed up ready for the #FantasyFish sales.  

All packed up and ready to go

Not only were there all the fish but we needed plenty of tables too...

Tables, chairs and a very large fish

We used the big fish as our sign. 

Rummaging for fish

The sales were fantastic with lots of people coming along to buy fish.  We had to have sealed bids for these beauties...

...and the winning bid saw them go to live with a local artist.  The goldfish in the bowl...

Knitted goldfish, knitted pebbles & crocheted plant

...has gone to be a carefree pet in the Ocean Room at the Robert Wilkinson Primary Academy in Strensall, York. A number of other lovelies are now swimming in their own bowls at their new owners too! 
An inseparable pair!

The hammerheads proved popular.  One is now residing in a cabinet of awesomeness...

But, what I'm sure you'd really like to know is how much we raised for the York Flood Appeal?  It was an amazing £600+.  So a big THANK YOU to everyone who made or bought fish or donated to the cause - a fantastic community effort.  And it's been a blast!
