When I was not getting sidetracked I managed to finish a new doll - rather different from the normal ones.
This is Lobelia Long Ears, a button jointed Easter Bunny. She's a new pattern, which needs some tweaks, but I rather like her. I intended to put her up for sale, but I'm still too nervous to stock my Etsy shop!
I really liked how these fabrics went together, very spring like and fresh. Normally I don't use florals, but I think this rose design is very sweet. Making this bag was a real challenge, cos it's huge, but it rolls up neatly so you can store it away easily in class, as storage space is so often at a premium when you're doing a workshop!
One of the reasons I've been extra busy is that I've been asked to create some stitchery designs for a regular class, and some patterns too. This is really exciting for me as it's a real chance to combine hand embroidery and stitching - and to use some of those ideas in my journals at last! One design is complete, but it's on it's way somewhere so I can't share until the recipient's seen it!
It's great to be sketching and drawing again. I hope to show what I've been up to soon and as always your comments and suggestions will be very welcome. Hope you get time to pop in and let me know what have you all been up to? x
