"Harris Tweed & Tartan, Tally Ho!!"




Here I am in the beautiful Cotswold's, on a misty Saturday morning on the 1st of October!! The tree tops all around are turning to shades of gold, pumpkin and burnt orange. I can here the Cockerel crowing and a pheasant "clattering", with the clumsy flapping they make!! My thoughts are going towards creating wonderful winter accessories. I'm certainly feeling inspired by my location, close to Gatcombe Park, in the "Royal triangle".  Harris tweeds and tartans are my chosen fabrics and I made the items in my photo's from upcycled scraps, purchased from a Scottish mill and a fellow UK Folksy seller!! These hats and bobby pins are listed in my Etsy shop, there's only one of each, as my scraps are small!! The strange thing is, we are having a late Indian summer here in the UK and when it warms up, the barbecue will be put into full action, with a spot of autumn sunbathing....Tally Ho!!!!
