Doll I made earlier in the year

Because of all the things going on in my life I couldn't post the picture of this doll which I had made earlier this year. She was a CIFI challenge doll. The theme for this year was under the sea. Her name is Aurelia and she is a jelly fish who rises ethereally from the depths of the sea floating silently by wherever the tide takes her. Her skirt lights up with fibre optic lights. Unfortunately the lights don't show up well in the picture except as bluish tint. I found it hard to depict the ethereal and floaty look of a jelly fish so she just looks like a ballerina lol!

Table Mess

What a mess! I should clear it all but need to just do a bit more. Drawing patterns are so tedious I prefer to make them and embellish them.

Snowing again

It started snowing this morning again today and I couldn't resist taking some pictures this one I quickly took from my car. I know I know I shouldn't do things like that but there were no other vehicles on the road and I was crawling

This was in our neighbourhood
And this lamp I thought looked really pretty glowing through falling snow

The snow is slowly stopping now but you know what will happen, in the night it will freeze and make the roads treacherous tomorrow. Watch out everyone in Scotland and in the north of the country this snow is coming your way now.

He is done at last!

"The Caterpillar and Alice looked at each other for some time in silence: at last the Caterpillar took the hookah out of its mouth and addressed her in a languid, sleepy voice....."

Well I do hope he looks languid and sleepy enough. I made only 2 sets of hands and was dammed if I was going to make anymore tiny hands lol!  I made him for a challenge but couldn't finish it in time because of my husband's health issues.
I guess now I have to make an Alice to go with it. She will have to be pretty small hmmm....

Hope you all have kept well. I will try and catch up with you all slowly. I have missed visiting your blogs but I shall get there eventually. Thanks you  all for supporting me through the past year and hope you will hang around here even though my posts are a bit sporadic at the moment.
