Fingers in different pies

Since I have my fingers in different pies I thought I might as well have another pie going LOL! So I decided to take Jacque's class. This is a lovely tree top angel called Ashley Rose . Here is mine sitting in a corner drying. I hope she doesn't take too long. I think I will put her in the oven
to speed up the process.

Gifty Day!!

Look what I got in the post today! A pressy from my dear friend Kai! Thank you so much Kai. I never expected it, you are so kind and generous and it is lovely. I will treasure it. It has made my day. Thank you thank you once again.

Tiny fairy done

My tiny fairy is done. I am wondering if I should give her wings. I like her as she is. I made some wings for her but I think they are a bit too big so they keep flopping over. May be I will give her tiny wings. What do you think but I personally think she has enough magic in her to make her mobile LOL! She works her little magic and stands on her own. Her hair is made from wool that is twisted and when she is working her magic they stand out on the sides. She a fun fairy. Hope my partner will have fun with her. Her petals can even be used as pin cushions.

Weekend fun

Chris had a mini challenge in her blog to raise funds for "Breast Cancer". I am no good at scrapping anything let alone my breasts LOL. So I decided I'd make a little paper doll since it is for a good cause
Beach Babe
On Saturday I went to a feltmaking class. It is a 3 week course and I just loved it. It was great fun. The teacher showed us such an easy method. I have read about how to felt in various books and internet article but nothing to beat hands on demo. Here are my first results. Never thought it would be so easy.

Tiny Fairy

My Tiny Fairy has hands and legs. She turned out to be a skinny 10inch fairy LOL

I have been tagged!

Hello ladies, I have been tagged by Michelle, Diane, Chris . Thank you ladies for thinking about me. I have decided that I will just play here and not tag anyone else as most of you have already been tagged. So here are my 7 secretes LOL!
1. It is one year since I left work and thought I would miss it after a while but I don't. I love being at home and doing my own things
2. When I sit down to do my craft work the elves keep coming and hiding my things
3. When I do my craft work my work seems to spread from one room to the next
4. I love to watch Antiques Road Show
5. I try and excersise 3 times a week
6. I love to travel places that has a lot of history and if I had the money I would do just that...
7. My fix for the day is a cup of tea in the morning and a cup of tea in the afternoon.
It is almost time for that fix so I am off the computer now

Dolls dancing

I have dolls dancing, that is in my head but not yet materialised. After having been to the knitting and stitching show I came away with lots of inspiration. While I have been mulling away in my head, I made this quick pin for Justine whom I am going to meet on Friday. She came across me via the internet and contacted me immediately when she found that I live in England. I am really excited about meeting her. I am also designing a tiny little doll for a swap which is not turning out tiny at all LOL! The swap is for a 6 inch fairy but mine is about 8-9 inches. I will just have to turn her into a 6 inch fairy and I will make a bigger one as well which I want to do.

swap doll done

Today I went to the knitting and stitching show in Ally Pally( Alexandra Palace). As always I had a great time ooohing and aaahing over so many beautiful textile art exhibits and as usual ended up spending more than I should have. But I console myself saying oh well it is only once a year. I met up with Barbara, Betts , Patti and also met Sarah in their booth. I missed meeting up with Colleen which was a pity. Also in the rush I forgot to take my camera so I have no photos to show you all. I got my mermaid finished and delivered it to Patti. She is a swap doll. At the moment I don't know to whom it will go to but we are doing a swap with Patti's doll club members so I hope whoever gets her will like her. Next year the doll artists will be going to France for the show. So may be I will go there too it gives me an excuse to go there anyway and meet up with my french friends.

Something fishy

Today our teacher brought in some fish (Sardines) for us to paint. I think I am slowly begining to get the hang of water colours. I don't think this is an exact replica of the fish but that was not her intention in giving us to paint a fish. She wanted us to use colours to blend. She also wants us to paint to a large scale hence the fish is big and everything else we will paint will be large. Now don't ask me what that orange blob is and what it is doing there, I won't even go into it LOL! I didn't find anyone moving away from me in the train so I guess I didn't smell of fish either LOL!

Going for a ride!

This is what you show when you have nothing to show LOL! Since I am at a low ebb thought I would show what my dolls are up to. This one seems to be enjoying her ride . This one is taking its time to come together. Will I ever finish her ? I have to send her away next week!
