Lots of sewing ......
It has certainly been a mad month of March for me, with so much going on, I don't know if I am coming or going, and on many days I have not even had time to log on the computer at all!
My friend Jayne opened her shop Poppy Patchwork on Wednesday, and I spent all day Monday helping her to get set up, which was great fun, but really exhausting. You don't realise how heavy fabric bolts are until you have to move 250 of them quickly! However, it was all worth it, and the shop is looking great.
I just wanted to share the doll I have designed and will be teaching in June. (As long as enough students register!) She has now gone on display in 'Abigail Crafts*' so fingers crossed...
Abigail is very much a cloth/sewn doll as the audience will be primarily quilters and stitchers. Her face is much more simple than normal, as I have tried hard to do something which will be easy for first time dollmakers to follow. Making her so others can create her has been a real challenge for someone who can't follow instructions herself- and the teaching notes very hard to do - but it's been fun.
She is off to quilting class with her little bag and quilt top ready for completion.
Hope everyone is having a great spring so far.x
