Hello there Cowgirls! I have a number of new designs planned for this Spring…and these lavender sachet giraffes are the first to launch. The first one has just been sold online in my Etsy shop and more are on their way! It’s always so nice to create something new and to know that someone, somewhere, has fallen in love with it and decided they must have it. I really like these giraffes, with their cheery fabric and wool felt manes and tails and have enjoyed making them. I’ll post more pictures when there are more giraffes to show you!
It’s the Chronicle Christmas Market tomorrow, Saturday 15th December, and although we’re expecting some less than hospitable weather, we’re hoping you’ll come and have a look around at the lovely crafts, sample the delicious local foodstuffs and enjoy the festive atmosphere! We’re there from 9am-6pm, so do take a moment from the high street madness to pay us a visit! I shall be there with my sweet little friends, who are all looking for brand new homes for Christmas!
I’ve been thinking I need to pay this site some attention. It does tend to get neglected in favour of my online shops, for instance. And so I think it needs to serve a different purpose, rather than feeling somehow like a kind of add on, an old friend you keep feeling bad about neglecting, when you’re really fond of them, actually. I think we need a new look, at least, and some serious thought put into what is needed from the site. So over the summer I’m going to brew up some ideas and see what I can come up with! In the meantime, here’s a pretty picture or two, and the promise of something just a little bit exciting coming up very soon!
See you back here soon, I hope! Lucy x
I might be feeling the Spring thing a little early, but this warm sunshine sure makes me feel happy! I’ve started listing some lovely new products online here – https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/TheWhistlingCowgirl?ref=si_shop – and am busy sewing for my first Made in Shropshire market of the year, next Saturday in Ludlow, from 9am-5pm. It’s in the town centre, just off the main market in the square. I shall be bringing my new spring collection of fresh, flowery goodies to celebrate the start (we hope) of a lovely, sunny, warm year ahead!
Two fabulous events this weekend! First up there’s Bus Stop Vintage’s Christmassy Fair at the Lion Hotel in Shrewsbury – from 11am – 5pm, with live music, tearoom and mulled wine!
And Sunday, it’s my first time at Concorde College’s wonderful Christmas Fair, at the college in Acton Burnell, from 1.30pm – 4.30pm.
See you there for much Christmassy fun!
Here’s all the details you need for two splendid events this weekend! I’m going to be at both and am greatly looking forward to them! Are you coming? First up it’s Crafty Vintage at Bishops Castle on Saturday 2nd November, then Vintage Escapades on Sunday the 3rd. I’m trying to find the poster nestling about somewhere on my computer, but I can’t. I’ll find it later and upload it. Anyway, the event is 10am – 4pm as usual, at Woore Victory Hall, Woore, Cheshire, so come along and start your seasonal shopping!
You can now reorganise your Folksy shop better and add easily viewed collections…it has a lovely, fresh look that is gradually being rolled out across the site. Check back for a whole lot of new listings next week!
It’s the first Bus Stop Vintage Fair tomorrow, and I’ll be there, so please come and have a peep! It’s in St Mary’s Church, right in the heart of Shrewsbury town centre, opposite Vinegar Hill. Running from 10am-4pm, there’ll be wonderful vintage sellers and handmade goodies for your delectation. And the tearoom, of course, with hot coffee and tea and cakes galore. Hope to see you there! I have some brand new, fresh off the bolt creations, plus some sale items to tempt you!
Well, who do we have here, sneaking into Issue 22 of Mollie Makes? Only Fox, sitting on his shelf in Claire Bates’s Landbaby shop at The Bluecoat in Liverpool! Take a look at page 11, where you can see a glimpse of Claire’s gallery of craft specialness, which must be on anyone’s list of places to go should they visit Liverpool. www.landbaby.co.uk. More foxes will be made to go into my online shops later next week, so please check back and see…They will all need nice, new homes!
