Just a little bit of crafty activity from the sewing room today.
My free evenings have been spent knitting "parts" for dollies.
I loved the little characters on "Fluttterby Patch" so I bought the patterns and started knitting. Well, Like everything else I pick up - it's addictive!
I have already given one away and she has been named Daisy and is already a firm favourite.
We have had a busy week because Maxine was contacted by someone wanting to buy some of her beautiful needle felted pictures so we had to get a few mounted and framed and then set up a little exhibition in my dining room. Here are a couple of them...
Check out "Tilly Tea Dance" if you want to see more. She sold four so, I think she needs to get a few of them on her Etsy site now, in time for the Christmas rush!
And lastly, as I was in Watson and Thorntons fabric shop on Monday somehow I felt the urge to stock up on my fat quarters!! ( Something sounds a bit weird there but I am sure you know what I mean!!)
Just a tip for anyone sewing metallic thread - these needles help to stop the thread from breaking. Also they have a humongous eye so they are easy to thread - a tip for short sighted old dears like me!!)
Well that's it for this week.
It was lovely to see the photos of all our WOYWW buddies at the crop last Saturday - and so good to see that smiley pic of Shaz looking so well too.
Have a great week and thanks for dropping in.
