I was so pleased when I reached 100 lovely followers.I had no idea it could happen .I love writing
and have been motivated to keep on being creative by the kind comments I have received and from seeing so many brilliant blogs.
I have never been very confidante about the things I love to make but have been a compulsive maker since childhood.Since writing this blog I understand that for me its the making and kind comments have given me so much more confidence. Now I even run a workshop here in the village and tonight all our effors will be on show in an exibition in the school hall.So I am going to give away the cloth doll you see in the photograph,please leave a comment and I will give them a number as they come.Tony has already placed a number in an envelope and I will open it on tuesday the 7th of august and let the winner know. I forgot to say she is about 28inches tall.
The other day I promised myself I would put some shoes on my latest cloth doll,and I have at last.
I have spent two days playing around with this .I first printed onto cloth a painting I did several weeks ago and then drew some little faces(something I love to do) and made the body in a similar shape to the comfort dolls I have made in the past .I stiched around te flowers added a few beads and thenassembled it. The bit that went wrong was the border,my machine didn't like the thickness so a leson learnt.I have begun another but she must wait for another day.
