I love sewing!

Just had one of those lovely weekends, where there are no arguments, no disasters, the sun shone a little bit, there were daffodils and snow drops everywhere - and I spent plenty of time in my sewing room!
Finally finished off this tiny rag doll - she is about 10" tall. Can't for the life of me think of a name for her though...

After Visiting Mumsy-in-law on Mothers day, we stopped off on 'the tops' (the old road to our next town) and decided to take some pictures Au natural (not me of course!) hadn't realised just how cold and windy it was though - and my poor fingers were numb in about 2 minutes.
I have been checking out the amazing Hillary Lang's blog recently after discovering her work in a couple of books I have - so all credits due to her for the next couple of makes - this is Wee Bunny - in very strong wind! (his ears do actually stand up straight...) I think he will be going to baby Jessica my niece, for Easter...ahhh

And here is another Wee Wonderful - this is Pea nut the wee elephant! I just adore this guy! I did make one of his eye's a bit wonky, but Taryn my daughter who is now pea nut's guardian thinks this makes him a bit 'special'

so she took this photo of herself for me to show her happiness. teenagers, godda love 'em....?

My next project is another wee wonderful - my oldest niece Maisy has asked for one of Hillary Lang's truly amazing 'pointy kitty's' for her birthday on the 24th of march - and after looking on the wee wonderful pointy kitty photo gallery at the 400+ variations can't wait to make my own version(s)

Love the doll. I don't know why but the name LucyLoo came to mind.
