A flat dolls head Christmas card

Didn't have much time today but finished this fabric postcard late this afternoon. I tried, what should be my new found skills with photo shop, to brighten the picture but can see I still need to redo some of the classes. I have made several of these cards but still enjoy doing them, and am surprised how each face has its own expression.

Another doll finished

This poor doll has been sitting about for months wearing very little. I made her the yellow skirt, didn't like the colour and put her on a shelf until I could decide what to do. This was nearly three months ago but a few days ago she caught my eye and I took her down. My worktable was very cluttered at the time but luckily right in front of me were some blue bits and piece and some lace. It put them next to the skirt and liked what I saw and here is the result.
I have just one more unfinished doll , I shall have a long look at her soon.

Meantime I have been busy making more fabric cards and little felt shoes in red, for Christmas.So I better get on.

A fabric postcard swap

I received this fabric card from Whytefeather who has a blog called Squirrelly Ducks. It was a swap for one of mine. I really like the face and the way Stacie has added beads and lace to her hair. I was so pleased to receive it as its the first fabric card I have had with a face on to add to my collection.

No picture of Cinderella

I don't know why the photo of Cinderella didn't appear but will try again now.

Doll finally finished for a CDA Challenge

I have taken ages before telling myself she is fine, though I have just realised she has no shoes on. I remember I did start to make some but they probably got hidden somehow and then forgotten so she has to be shoeless for now. She is for the Vintage group in CDA and for the Cinderella Challenge. I don't usually enter challenges so this is my first time.
I have been very busy lately making lots more fabric cards in every spare moment as lots of people have asked for them, but think I need a change. Judy at Judy's fabrications kindly sent me some photo copies of craft projects that I have been looking at and I have started a new quilt.
I also enrolled for Kim Klassen's photoshop skinny-mini e course. I want to have much better photos than I take now. Its just for a week and I can do it in the evening when the light is too poor to sew.
