Bit of this and that...

Thought I would share some things that have evolved over the last few months, things that have been works in progress for quite a while. These blue ladies are sisters, twins I say but not identical.They are finished (picture is pre-embellished) and now reside in the homes of two great gals that are lovely, wonderful, caring friends to me.

Thought I would share my latest fabric book page for Jo, a heart pocket that holds a secret.Once again I could have added so much more to each one as the ideas keep evolving and have a time frame that my brain isnt set to. Gotta stop overthinking my plan and be a girl of action to get it all how I want it to look in my head ! Each round I learn something new which is brilliant.This page taught me that I know nothing about tention while free motion stitching on my machine HA !!! Still have a romantic thing happening ,working in pinks and purples, but hey, thats the way it goes....


Had a lovely gift arrive from the ever loving, ever giving Dotee which was so awsome from the moment I laid eyes on the parcel. Dotee had decorated the package with little dotee doll stickers and spoilt me rotten with delightful dolls (miss Amelia was a favourite and thrilled she is mine) stickers, beautiful fabric and the most wonderful Dotee dolls for my two girls to create for themselves.A super inspiring gift and makes it so worth getting my gall bladder removed to be spoilt like this, so I thankyou dear Dot for caring about me. Hug you Dotee xxx

and this polymer clay will be heading to its new home very soon.
Love this stuff and so much fun...

very serene looking dolls, and very different faces. I do like the book pages you have done - I am sure with practice the tension will get better (did you ever have it looked at?)it just adds to the piece anyway. Your poly work has an inner glow to it too. Lucky you with the Dotee doll.
