In the window today

A selection of local makers work for sale in Handmade Happinesw
Pictured above are wrist warmers knitted by Kate Box; a spring flowers mug thrown and decorated by Kate Hackett and a pretty purse sewn by Carol Smith.

A pocket teleidoscope which changes everything you see into kaleidoscopic images by Frank Higgins, a dog brooch sewn by Karen Boller and the next three pieces and the bowl below them are the work of Ali Cooper; the blue storage jar is made by Samantha Robertson; the flattened spoon bracelet by Jenny Shutler and the stitched notebook by Sheila Barrow.

Handmade Happiness contains so much talent. When you start to think of the hours and hours of designing and making that's gone into the pieces on display it's a bit overwhelming. I'm so pleased I opened HH when I did. It's always lovely when people admire the things in the shop and the shop itself. And with the help of supporters and friends I want the shop to just get better and better.
