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?

Intricate and Delicate …

Lee created this beautiful and intricate thigh piece this week. Our lovely customer had already had some smaller ink work on her arm by Lee and decided to go large for her next piece. I think the detail, delicacy and intricacy make this so feminine and very beautiful. What do you think?

Goodbye Dukey…

One of our lovely customers bid a sad farewell to his beautiful dog this week. Cocker Spaniel Marmaduke, affectionately known as Dukey went to doggie heaven at just 7 years old. His heartbroken daddy brought a treasured photo into the studio and Lee created this beautiful tattoo in Dukey’s memory … so sad but so beautiful!

Happy New Skull (part deuce)

I popped into the studio yesterday afternoon and found Lee having a quiet few moments between his customers. The huge huge skull painting he started a couple weeks ago seems to be coming along beautifully …
