My first attempt at a Tilda Doll

and I have to say it wasn't as difficult as I thought. Okay, the hair WAS difficult but I reckon with practise I can probably conquer it...

Apologies for the photography. We've had nothing but rain for the past couple of days so the light is terrible PLUS I found it quite difficult to photograph her as she's quite a big dolly and it's difficult to get all off her in the photograph without making her look teeny tiny.

Anyhoo, enough excuses. Here she is

Here she is without her wings purely because the photograph might be a bit clearer

...and then again...maybe not....sorry...

I did take a bit of poetic license with her by adding her little head scarf but other than that I think she's exactly like the example in the book which, by the way, is the Homestyle one.

She's a crafty angel for my pal Louise so she will be on her way to a new home as soon as I know when Louise will be home to collect her.

Christmas in July

I met up with some pals at Newbury Racecourse for the Artstamps show yesterday and splurged on some new stamps and dies. Couldn't wait to play so I scampered on up to my craft room and made this card to add to my stash of Christmas Cards. OF COURSE there are mice on it. I couldn't resist :oD

The show was much smaller than usual but there was plenty there to keep us interested and I came home with quite a haul of bargains so that should keep me happy for a while :oD Guess you'd better watch this space....
