Christmas at the Cowshed

Apologies for my absence of late, but I've been rather busy, not only with Folksy and NOTHS orders, but also building up stock to sell at this lovely event...

Country Living readers may well recognise the painting style - it's by local artist Nicky Harwood, better known as The Cow Lady. She is opening her studio to the public, and selling crafts and gifts made by other creative talents in the area.

So I've been making driftwood cards...



lavender fish... and also collected everything else from my Folksy shop!

This whale cushion has been looking for a new home for some time - I hope he finds one this weekend!

I like seeing everything together in one place: it's strangely satisfying!

I don't remember showing you this large Christmas Owl in the Moon before - you can just make out the snowflakes falling if you look carefully! I just love that fabric, it came from Seamstar.

Anyway, I know many of you won't be able to make the long journey to attend the event, but I just wanted to stop by and say Hello and to wish you all a most excellent weekend!

Christmas at the Cowshed * November 20th and 21st * 10am to 5pm

  1. Oh, your things look lovely all together! I'm sure they'll sell well - they're great. Love the bowl of robins! Love the Cow Lady paintings!

  2. Hello You.
    I agree with you that everything is very pleasing on the eye when it is all grouped together. It sounds like a very good thing to be part of, this Cow Shed Malarkey. Have fun and sell lots, Ax

  3. All your cards and softies look amazing, hope it goes fantastically well for you:)

  4. I truly wish I could be there. Your work really does look wonderful clustered together like that. Best of luck and I'm sure you'll sell stacks.

  5. Dear Kirsty
    I'd be there if I could! Your creations look so very lovely all collected together like that and show how amazing a house could be filled with them all :-)
    I love the owl, and yes, the fabric is delightful.
    Have a great time at the fair this weekend and fingers crossed for zippy whale and a new home !

  6. Hi Kirsty, Good luck! Wish I could be there! Everything looks amazing... one day I will have saved enough pennies for an owl! Have a wonderful weekend! Lou xx

  7. Your creations are delightful Kirsty. I know you are going to sell out!
    Congratulations on being in the Folksy Christmas sampler as one of the most viewed shops. It is well deserved. I can claim a little credit I think as I often pop into your folksy shop and drool!

  8. Hi, I'm Louise, one of your newest followers! I love your blog because of all the beautiful things you make, you are very talented! I'd love to visit the cow lady studio this weekend but I live in the peak district so it's a bit too far! The driftwood cards are lovely, what a great idea! Are any of them going to make it to your online store?! I would be interested in purchasing one or two if so :)
