I'm writing this from my re-designed desk/computer area which is wonderful and so comfy now! Sorry to disappear without any explanation - I overdid things in May and paid the price. I'm now much better, but my problem is probably with me for life, so I've had to make quite a few lifestyle changes. A few weeks ago I began lessons in the Alexander Technique, which has been a revelation. I hope to start doing some embroidery again in a few weeks, but I'm going to have to make changes in my creative life too.
I've been trying to keep busy though and I thought you might like to see the dolls I've created over the past couple of months. The first 2 girls are stump doll samples for classes in the autumn and the third was purely for my enjoyment!
Arianell, Queen of Winter, was designed as not a Christmas angel or fairy, but something completely different which would be suitable for the Christmas/Winter season.
I had a very short time to work on these, but I'm pleased with how they came out.
Finally, here is Sunny.
She also painted the old lace she found to jazz up the t shirt and borrowed mum's sewing machine to machine embroider her bag, using the contents of mum's orts jar to make the fabric.
Recycled flip flops and beads; chain belt made from old jewellery and fabric flowers in her hair and clothes complete the look.
Hopefully, I'll be back to blogging a bit more regularly now, and I'll tell you the news about my changing life! Thanks to all my kind blogging friends who have been in touch, you're a wonderful bunch of people!x
