Completed


 

This gorgeous scarf has just come off the loom. I really enjoyed making it.

It is the 'soari' style and made from cotton, Teesdale and Merino wool,  and silk.

It is lovely and soft and when I have finished it off it will be flying off to the Norfolk Gift Company in Watton.

Norfolk Gift Venture

 


New Shop    -    New Adventure

The Norfolk Gift Company opens its door for the first time this Saturday (April 30th)

Proprietors Amanda George and Natalie Hutchings have made the big leap from 

market stallholders to shop owners.

The pair joined forces to bring an inspirational and much need gift outlet to 

Watton High Street, Norfolk.

Ms George is the owner of Naturally Rambunctious and  makes a wide variety of products including fragrant handmade soaps and bath/shower products.

Mrs Hutchings is the owner of Appleyard Candles and makes a large selection of fragranced candle, wax melts and home fragrance products.

They each had a market stall on Watton High Street and together they had a third stall they called The Norfolk Gift Company. It sold items from local craftsmen. They had a great response and with help from the Breckland Council's Regeneration Trust they moved into the former Barnado's charity shop in the High Street.



Katrina Krafts is proud to be part of their new venture. I will be having a large selection of handwoven scarves and shawls and other wooly items.


Good Luck

Happy New Year


Happy New Year to you all and thank you to you all for your support during 2021
and interest in my website. 

I hope that you managed to meet up with your family and friends over the Christmas period and you have managed to stay Covid free.
I am now boosted and ready for the New Year.

January began mild and grey so we decided to go for a walk to blow away the cobwebs. The trees are yet to show growth but we did see our first burst of catkins.
Here you see across the fields towards the Lincolnshire Wolds.


 Over the holiday period I managed to do some weaving. The first scarf I sold before I had even finished it. It was light and airy and woven in a soft yarn with a purple patterned edge.


My second piece is also light and airy and made a soft beige viscose/cotton blend with a patterned edge in pale green and lemon.

Christmas Wreath


I decided to make myself something for a change so I made 
myself a Christmas wreath made from pompoms. 
It was very therapeutic and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

What's New?


Hello everyone What's new?

It has been an odd year and already it is autumn. I have spent a lot of my time in the 
garden as well as crafting and writing.

My book Fagus the Badger has been proofread and tweaked and now I am in the process of having some exciting illustrations done by the Clumsy Pickle


I have been making some fun cards for my Folksy shop.
