Well I’ve only gone and opened a flippin’ shop! Katie Lou Makes Stuff is open for business! Okay, well it’s not quite a real shop, it’s an online Etsy shop, but a shop is a shop is a shop! I’m so excited! Loads of people were telling me to do it because I keep churning out loads of… Continue reading I’ve opened a shop!
I’ve had a busy few weeks since finishing Brian from the Crocheted Wild Animals book.
