Almost there

I have almost finished all of my knitting orders and I can tell you it is quite a relief. Once I am completely done I am looking forward to creating some new knitted gems and getting stuck into some painting. I have two painting commissions for a friend of the family and I have just sold another painting up in Forfar so I need to get another one up there to replenish the stocks!

Another thing on my "to do" list is to design new stationary, labels and packaging for my knitting shop. As soon as I have any ideas I'll post them up for you to give me feedback. I think I know how I want it to look but I just find it hard to get it down on paper.

Happy New Year by the way (I almost forgot!). We had a very quiet but lovely Hogmanay up north in Forfar and we all had a gorgeous walk on Montrose beach on New Years Day. With toasted rolls and homemade soup in the car beforehand whilst waiting for the cold rain to stop. As the clouds rolled away, out rolled the nutters having a New Year dook in the sea! Total madness!!Miss G was playing chicken with the waves and lost! Luckily I had a change of clothes in the car.

I am thinking of having my first blog give away to celebrate the New Year so keep an eye out towards the weekend for that.

Here's to a fantastic, productive, creative and profitable (!) 2009.
