Finished by Friday with a smile

 Three little finished items that make me smile!
Little Katie Morag dolly now has some hair - she complained bitterly about the cold until I finished stitching her lovely copper brown hair in place.
Each one seems to be better than the last but they take about two days to make so really I just make them for fun, because it's what I like doing.

Some folks wanted a better picture of my little needle-felted robin.
He still needs a bit more "dumfing" with my spiral needle-felting needle to tuck in all his stray fluff  feathers!
I made him at the workshop with Gretel - Middle of Nowhere blog - she makes amazing little needle-felted sculptures. He is just a tear shaped ball of brown wool roving needlefelted and then details added. He will be hanging on my tree this Christmas.

Lastly, the cheery little pink "In threes" cardi for Lexi.
It is made in DK and is just enough to give an extra layer of warmth without being too bulky.
She loves pink!

Hope you like my Friday show and tell and that it has raised a smile too.
Join in with Annie's smiles over on her "A stitch in time" blog.
Have a great weekend.

You have a wide variety of creations today. I really like the bird. It would go in my "bird sanctuary" if I owned it (grin).

Your little doll looks very labor intensive. I can see why it would take two days to make. She's lovely.

Gosh! You put me to shame how fast you make things. Did you do her knitted jumper and stitch her skirt in that time too!!
Hugs Mrs A.
