Flowers, bunting,journal pages and the village sewing group

The last few weeks I have been busy making flowers and bunting to decorate the tent and all around the wood in readyness for the party we have every year for my birthday. Luckily the wood has about a 1/3 where there are few trees and its quite flat. We have two fabulous irish musicians coming again ,they are very versitile and the music is perfect to dance to or listen.In between I have worked on my other daughters journal,I found a photo of me with my father taken on his 80th birthday and still have many more family photos to use.The other page  is for her to write on. She loves bright colours and I am trying my best.

 I worked with the sewing group this week and asked a friend along to show us some of the dolls she has made. Every one was very impressed and she explained where the patterns came from and hopefully will come back to show them how to make sculpted faces. Something I want to know too.

Though I doubt somehow I will ever follow other peoples patterns,I love to see them and appreciate how brilliant they are but prefer to muddle along my own way.

  3. Wow your journal pages are beautiful Jill. Hope you have better weather than us for your party. Your sewing group is very talented. Love those dolls. They all are lovely.

  4. I left you a message on your purple doll. I wanted to make sure you got my comment. Have a sweet day.

  5. The journal pages are very lovely--what a thoughtful and magical gift. And what a party you're going to have! That sounds magical too. The dolls are really cute, but I agree with you: I'd rather muddle through on my own. It's a more interesting trip.
    best, nadia
