The New Tags and Anchors!

Today was a beautiful day to be out and about. And after the initial housework of laundry and putting away some wiping up was done, I grabbed some money and headed out the door. I was on a mission. I had a long way to walk and only about two hours to do my errands this morning. First thing's first, though. I just have to let you all know that the new tags are being tried out and the new anchors are now being used. I've been around to Triple B on Miller Road at Slacks Creek and they've been wonderful people to help me with my dilemma of people stealing the tags. When I showed the owner my work and explained what I was doing with it, and how the tags were being either stolen or not lasting long enough, he was good enough to give me offcuts of his work at no cost. After all, they just throw the metre long pieces of bootlace in the bin; and now there's place for it and it's on my art works.

So, here's some snaps of the new anchor and I've also added on a link to their website so you can see what Triple B does - besides supply me with offcuts. They are a brilliant leathercraft suppliers who also do work for the police and security companies as well. My family have known the owners for a long time; and so this is another reason why I chose them to supply me with the offcuts. I also promised to add their link onto my blog too as free advertising. In the next few weeks and months, I'll be adding onto the blog as I've been working on more and more swatches for trees.
In the last few nights, I've worked on one for a tree trunk instead of a branch; but it's in its experimental stages at the moment and I'm unsure if it'll work or not. Let's hope it does and I can show you what I've been up to. There's going to be other things coming onto this blog soon too. I'm researching knitting sites and have been talking to friends to get them to have a look at some of the things on here and my other blogs as well. So, with all this work happening, I'll busier than I have been in a long time. Keep working on what you're working on and happy knitting!
