I have a been up to quite abit lately.
I made this Annie type doll for a showcase I am in this week on Facebook. I love the challenge of showcases. I love to put my creative thinking cap on and look to come up with some One of A Kind type of things... this is my first ever one and I have booked into 4 so far.
The doll above dosent have a name as yet.. I had better put my thinking cap on to come up with that before she goes on sale. The showcase is of a Cartoon Theme for children... there is lots of lovely things that have been created by lots of handcrafters here in New Zealand and Australia.
We have also been away.
A friend has a lovely place in Queenstown New Zealand we were able to stay in
We had a lovely time down there
We had beautiful weather and the trees are starting to turn beautiful colours with Autumn
I am an animal lover.
I have also recently become very much in love with fibre art. I love to spin, dye and ply wool. I love to do things with fabric, wool, cotton and embroidery thread together. I have been experimenting. So while we were away I got to pat an Alpaca.. their fleece is so soft and they are the most amazing colours.
I have been spinning abit of Alpaca latley and it is sooo soft and warm..
This is a hat I made for a friends little baby due in a few weeks.
This is Sophia with a cute little hat and scarf set.
I made these matching hats for these precious little girls recently. What little cuties they are!
and in the process of getting stock together for my website I made this newborn dress. This is made from lovely hand-dyed machine washable wool
I had some dyed wool roving left over after I had done some spinning... so I made this cute little rose out of it..... I thought it would be a cute little addition to my beanie hats I am making.
So I have been busy busy... there is alot more to show you but this post would be super long if I did..
Have a great day
