Say hello to Sally. Sally is the dolly I started making at the Creative Women Workshop in Launceston. When I saw that Sarah and Anne Ida had finished theirs I just had to get her done. She is a Rosalie Quinlan design and I am very pleased with how she turned out. Isn't her face pretty? I must confess that Rosie did to for me!
Her pinafore is needleturn appliqued and I think I've done okay for my first effort. Big thank you to Gail. I have some Roxanne's glue coming in the mail this week from Lesley at Foothills Fabric and Threads so I can't wait to do some more.
The original Sally had pink hair but I thought this linen ric rac I found in Melbourne last week would do the job. She is having a rest after a busy morning collecting eggs with a friend.
I also decided to give her some shoe laces.
Oliver was very interested in this photo shoot. I think he's missed our little sessions.
Where did this throw rug come from? Why's it on my bench? (Just realised it's upside down! And no it's not dirty - just teadyed.)
With Easter just around the corner, I've been looking through magazines for some projects to make. I have made heaps of Christmas decorations but virtually no Easter ones. I figure if I try and make something each year, I'll gradually built up a collection.
Think I'll have a go at these felted wool eggs from Australian Homespun No 46,
and maybe these little ornaments by Debbie Lofgren of Little Stitches. Found this pattern at the Expo in Melbourne.
If you're still here you may be in luck. As I somehow missed celebrating my 5Oth post, I thought I'd have a little giveaway today. Look at the picture below. If you can guess which long legged lady I started making this morning and tell me the names of the Aussie ladies who designed her (a few clues there!) I will enter you in a draw for a little prize. Just leave a comment by Friday 7th March to go in the draw.
