Thanks for the response to yesterday’s post. I should probably have been clearer, in that I do still intend to post process photos but I think I’ll be a bit more mindful of which ones I choose, I’d find it quite difficult to write an interesting blog if I didn’t talk about my work in full so I can’t see me stopping and I’m sorry to read (but sadly, not surprised) so many of you have also suffered from your work being copied.
At the beginning of the year, when I pulled out my summer stock to see where the gaps were, I was a bit shocked at how few lavender birds I had left. These used to be one of my staple designs, always a best seller but in terms of selling a slight pain as they are stuffed to order, to keep the lavender smell fresh and ideally, I prefer things to be finished and labeled ready to go. Interestingly, the sale of these has dropped off quite a bit in the past year, I think it’s partly down to my not introducing many new colour versions so I thought I had better correct that.
I’ve started with some ‘Pam Kitty Happy Dot’ by Holly Holderman for Lake House Dry Goods as the bright colours mix well with my summer stock. I think I bought this with linen mice in mind and they would make cute dresses, so maybe if I have time I’ll run a few up later.
I’ve rather heavily processed this last image, it’s a bit grainy so would benefit from being taken again in better light, but I feel the need to get things listed, especially with Mother’s Day coming up (is it the day of the Mother, singular or the day of Mothers plural, I never can decided!).
Ah wonderful, after a very chilly start the sun has come out, time to set the tripod up and try to get some photos taken, best make hay and all that 🙂
Oh and they are here.
