In Scotland, a first-footer is the first person who crosses your threshold in the New Year. They are supposed to bring good luck. So, here is a photo of my first-footer, a Scots Pine design shopper-style bag that was the prize in my #yarnlarder Instagram competition. Hopefully, it will bring good fortune to the winner, Amelia Hodsdon, known as @woollenwords on social media!
I’ve now started preparing for the Edinburgh Yarn Festival which takes place from 20th-24th March. I hope to update my EStore afterwards, possibly in April.
Thereafter, I’m applying to attend the Perth Festival of Yarn which is held in September; and hopefully I’ll be at GLOW at the Dovecot Tapestry Studios in December again.
Hope you’re having a good start to 2019. If you have any questions about Woolly Originals or my project bags, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
