Clown Skull …

At the weekend Lee created this original design, clown skull tattoo for one of our customers who was mighty chuffed with it. It seems even a lady serving in the local shop was also impressed as, when Lee popped in there earlier today for some bits and pieces, the assistant said “I saw one of your tattoos on Saturday and it was really good and a bit scary!”

Groovy Baby …

The stash of vintage patterns I inherited from my grandmother helped put the ‘authentic’ into a 1970s themed party this weekend. A friend seeking inspiration for her outfit sought out a bit of help from Trashcan Emporium and granny’s patterns got put to work. Using a 1970’s Jiffy sewing pattern and some amazing 1970s fabric, sourced from an auction, we made sure our lovely friend looked groovy baby! What do you think? Do you dig it? ❤️

Baby I Love You

Valentine is an excuse for us to be arty farty! My gift from Lee was this beautiful “Baby I Love You” drawing. The message is pretty special as it is a reference to the song by The Ramones and the tune for our first dance at our wedding. My card to Lee is a heart made out of one of my early swatches made on the machine knitting. Oh and I really do love him more than knitting!!!

Happy Valentines Day ❤️

Sweary Bobble Hat …

Very happy to have spent this weekend learning more about my knitting machine. Spent yesterday at a brilliant one day workshop learning all sorts of new things. Spent today fine-tuning my sweary bobble hat skills! Soooooooo blinkin’ happy how this one turned out … what do you think?

Dragon Fly away …

Our lovely regular customer is another lady whose heart has been stolen by Pembrokeshire. She came here on holidays a few years ago and soon made this beautiful county her home. Luckily Pembrokeshire is also the home of first class tattoo artist Lee Trashcan Minton of course! This beautiful colourful dragon fly is her latest ink … what do you think?

Hats All Folks …

Learning the knitting machine has been so so tough. I knit, I sew, I embroider and I crochet, and I do them all with confidence. However, learning how to use a knitting machine is a whole new league for me. I’ve made it my challenge to master the machine in 2018. With stripping, oiling and much perseverance I have my Silver Reed standard gauge singing beautifully. I am mighty proud of these beanies I machine knit over the weekend. The flower design was using one of the punch cards that came with the machine, but the other two are my first attempts at creating my own designs. Lee is very happy with the secret message written into the blue one. They are not wholly perfect but it was good learning and everyone starts somewhere right?
