This last year has thrown so many problems our way and I was fine until Tony went into hospital then just as he was recovering we had a fire here.The fire brigade was wonderful and it was soon put out,the house cleaned up and eventually the damage put right. I thought, and still do, about all the endless troubles throughout the world and this last dreadful one in America and became very sad.
For a time I didn't want to do anything much except necessities,then I began to make things in my workroom and now I am on track again.I missed the contacts through blogging and hope to catch up again .Befor I forget I hope all of you have a Happy Christmas and the New Year brings better news for us all.
The sewing group have sewn lots of cloth doll fairies and I have made several and just have to add wings today because we decorate the village hall this afternoon with them.The above are just 2 of mine.
 I also wanted to try and paint faces ,I tried all sizes and first with watercolour then Acrylics.I found watercolours easier but both were difficult.I see I need to keep trying and I may be given a helpful book for Christmas !!

Sorry the blue doll has come up again,no idea why. I have also made several journal pages.If there is time I will write another blog and show some mixed media collages I have made and love.                                                        


  1. Lovely to have you back Jill, and very glad you are feeling creative again, sometimes the world just takes over and we need to escape. The dolls are gorgeous and I'm sure the village hall will look fabulous.x

  2. Jill,
    Your dolls are soooo pretty. You know how much I love fairies, and I think they will look even more pretty with wings. You are so talented. I wanted to thank you for your friendship this year, and I hope next year will be a better one for you. Merry Christmas to you, and have a wonderful holiday with your family.
