Latest Update

Well a lovely surprise for me, my new puppy, "Harley" arrived 3 weeks earlier than was expected and of course that has thrown all my recent plans into complete chaos!!

I had planned to release a new pattern at this years Western Australian Craft, Quilt & Stitch Show, 5th-7th August 2011 ( details below ).

I have the sample just about complete and hoped to to have a few more "Snuffles" done on time, but thanks to my new bundle of fur, I really think I will be pushing it!!!!

At least I will have one sample to display at the show, he is a new elephant design in a long hand dyed string mohair with a wired trunk and tail.

I will post him here as soon as he is ready for adoption and notify the "Special Sneak Peek" members.

If you are interested in this new creation and/or the pattern, please feel free to contact me or stay tuned to this page this coming weekend.
