shoptalk : front page glory

It has been quite an exciting week so far, the love of 'granny chic' is spreading and I think one of the Etsy gods has got it bad... ;)

Ihave been featured twice this week on Etsy's front page and not because of a lucky treasury, but because the Etsy gods are smiling down on me! The first was my wee rose design pot holder 'Vera' in the soft and dreamy collection above and the second was the lovely 'Audrey' and friends in this equally beautiful collection! Both of which have resulted in lots of new shop and item hearts which I am utterly thrilled about :)

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, I'm spending time with my family just now so I will catch up with you all properly next week.

Wishing you lots of 'granny chic' goodness!

On a Friday... *ahem* ...sorry, I got a bit side tracked this week!

Anyway, it's all about the pretty fabrics on my desk this week. Lots of yummy prints in teal, cream and mustard with wee hints of red and olive. Yep, I have picked up my needle and thread again and have started work on a new collection of children's designs... it feels good!

Just popping in to show you what I have been waiting to do for the last half hour! It seems like it's been a dogs age since I put my last treasury together but I promise it won't be that long again, way too much fun! Well, as my take out has just arrived and there's a bottle of wine with my name on it, I'm off to have a lovely quiet evening. I hope you all have a fab one too... :)

Not very much crochet creativity going on here this week, instead of a hook in my hand it's a paintbrush. I'm finally getting round to sorting out the kitchen floor, cleaning up the old boards and painting them a gorgeous dark chocolate brown. Honestly, you could almost eat it! Not that there's much of a link between that and this Flickr mosaic, other than that I find painting and these lovely blues very soothing. Tenuous, I know... ;)

Oh, and don't forget I won't be announcing the winner of my potholder giveaway until Monday, so you still have plenty of time to think of the perfect name for her and let me know why. Once I have put the finishing touches to her I will post another picture.

Until then my dears :)

giveaway : name that pot holder

17 comments
Well that was an interesting week, quite the pot holder frenzy wasn't it!? Well, maybe not for you, but it certainly was for me! And to everyone who left a lovely message of support and love for my wall of pot holders ~ thank you and have a big hug from me! Your response was quite overwhelming and unexpected... :)

So now lets get down to business, it's the all new 'name that pot holder' give away...

giveaway : name that pot holder | Emma Lamb

Today I have spent my afternoon pottering away on this daisy motif pot holder. I'm using a cotton yarn in the most beautiful faded blackberry colour, which will be trimmed with an equally lovely rusty red. If you're interested in adding this little lady to your own collection, or if you'd like to start your own wall of pot holders, all you need to do name her. Just leave a wee comment on this post with the name you would give her and why, simple! Then in one week I will decide which is my favourite and announce the winner, and if I can't decide (you may all be pot holder naming genii* for all I know!) I'll do some kind of random pick from my favourites... :)

So best get your thinking caps on my friends... ;)
Emma, x

* according to Wiki genii is the correct plural of genius when referring to individuals, although I think I prefer geniuses... it sounds more cuddly!
