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.
