Family stuff

Here are my girls in Cafe Costa. I also have a lovely son. At present my Dad, their grandfather is very ill and that is why I've not felt like posting on my blog recently. I'm sorry. Will make it up to you soon.

Yesterday this blog celebrated its second birthday. I had planned a whole raft of freebies, best ofs and nice pictures and hopefully I'll still do some of that but it's been a helluva week and my blog hasn't had a look in.  I will remedy the situation and intend doing a series of posts. Thank you for still being there dear reader.

Favourite Doll

My friend Chris reckons I should make dolls like this life size to just sit on the sofa. I don't think I am capable of making big objects like that, everything I make is small. But she is without doubt my doll of the moment. Soft and squidgy she nevertheless has a great 'Don't touch me. Don't look at me' expression.

Workshop Buttons

Jane sent me this picture of a peg bag with buttons she made on the last button workshop here at my house. And on Saturday I saw Serena wearing a navy cardigan with buttons she'd made at the previous week's workshop.
Today I'm sorting out clothes for winter and I'm thinking it's high time I sewed on my handmade buttons to my own clothes.

Hello Autumn

Cooler temperatures and fallen leaves inspired me to make autumn tags.

Birthday Girl

Would you believe this blog is approaching its 2nd birthday?!
This simple doll is one of three doll experiments. My daughter thinks she should be a pen; a friend thinks she could be set in a scene in a box frame and my other daughter says add lentils for a paperweight. What do you think?

NEW! Hand felted badges

As usual with anything new these took far longer than I thought they would. But I'm pleased with the results. I hope that people will buy them in quantity. One could be worn on a coat , or several could be pinned round the neck of jumper. Hand felted badges designed and made by Jenny Stacy.

Using the wash board

I recently blogged about the old fashioned wash board Jane kindly gave me. Here it is in action helping me make felt. And very effective it is too.
Here you can see the new brooches I've made with felt made on the wash board.
