Good things come in threes!

I’m a very lucky person this week – I have 3 lovely things to share with you.

First of all , look what I received in the post!  This surprise present was from one of my online best friends, thanking me for some things I’d sent her.

Isn’t he absolutely gorgeous?  He’s made from handmade felt from rare breed sheep and is from one of my favourite Etsy shops – you can see him here.  I hope you can see how beautifully he is stitched.  He is now happily hanging on my noticeboard.

The second thing is a lovely blogpost from The Pin Factory all about a bunny she has knitted from one of my patterns.  He looks really cute.

 I wish we had the sunshine here that he has, as I need to plant my carrots too.

The 3rd thing is that I am featured in the UK Handmade Summer Showcase!  I feel very honoured to be amongst such a range of lovely things. You can see them all here.

Hope you all enjoy your Bank Holiday Mondays – check out what other lovely craft people have been up to at Handmade Monday


About madebyewe

Hello, and welcome to my blog, where I talk about the ups and downs of running a crafty business, knitting and life. I learnt to knit when I was a child in the 1970s. I think my Mum taught me, though it may have been one of my Nans. Both Nans were great crafters and my Mum knitted, when she had time. My childhood was full of wearing Mum's warm and cosy handknit jumpers to school and playing with yarn by the fire, making presents for my family and clothes for my toys. When I grew up, I started a business designing children's handknitted jumpers. Now I spend some of my time desgining gardens, as well as designing knitting. The garden design business is well established; the knitting design business is just starting out. I love the rhythmic quality of knitting, the feel of woolly yarn in my hands and the way a project grows beneath my fingers. It is relaxing and productive at the same time. I especially love vintage knitted toys and the quirky simplicity of the patterns. They were often made in times of austerity, when money and supplies were short, but the desire to create something fun inspite of this, shines through. I am a supporter of the Campaign for Wool, supporting the British wool industry, and using British yarn for my kits. Where would we be without fields of fluffy sheep to admire? Baa Humbug to acrylic!

    So please you love your felt Tilly. It’s nice to know she has gone to a good home with a fellow British wool enthusiast.

    I can’t wait to knit up one of your sheep. They are great little characters.

    Bailey looks fantastic too. You must have had great fun designing him.

    Best wishes,
