This butterfly is almost finished. I just need to add some sort of light weight ribbon (organza?) for the hanger.
Starting next week, I will be working on some tartan ornaments to sell at our local Highland Games. I know a kiltmaker who assures me that the Highland dancer crowd is always on the lookout for something different. She says as long as it has some tartan on it, there's a good chance it will sell.
Making these little cotton things is a hobby I took up a couple of years ago. I'm still experimenting and learning and I'm nowhere near as skilled as I'd like to be. But I am improving and have made a few items which I cannot part with. I mention this because selling my work is not important to me yet.
Anyway, I expect to be posting a lot over the next month. Maybe I'll even find time to catch on old flick on YouTube every now and then.
