I have news. I’m so happy to tell you that the little shop in Warley Woods, next to the cafe, is now stocking all sorts of handmade loveliness alongside the bird feeders and golf balls. Including a whole cabinet of Crafty Mutha makes.
Putting my owls in there was a no brainer. They feel right at home. But I’ve also made a few little teeth keepers and some upcycled leather corsages. And a couple of embroidered hoops for good measure.
Nat and Ceri have made some gorgeous jewellery. Pretty earrings, sweet hair clips, rings and Cer’s fabulous Bearwood Bracelet. There’s also original sheet music bunting and garlands from Nat. And Erin has been working her fingers hard on some beautiful knitted Christmas decorations. Fair Isle baubles and cute little trees.
The people at Warley Woods are making a concerted effort to stock some local, handmade goods alongside their regular merchandise and I think this is a really nice idea. Whilst stocking our cabinet I noticed Bearwood Tapestry member and friend of the Muthas, Lise Heeley, also had some of her beautiful jewellery on display too. Of course, the Muthas and Lise will have stalls at our upcoming Bearwood Handmade fairs soon.
Right, talking of The Tap, it’s on tonight. I have a hearty dinner of venison stew to serve up and then a bit of food shopping at The Bearwood Pantry before I head off to our monthly craft social. So I’m off.
