One of the many things that I'm doing, I have just started a stump doll, it is for an exhibition next year called"The Natural World" and I would like it to resemble a tree. the stump body looking like bark, branches for fingers, and either branches and leaves coming out of her head, or just leaves for her hair. Whetherr I'm just dreaming this or whether it will work, only time will tell, but I've made a start and I'm pleased the way the body has turned out.( the head doesn't belong to this doll, was just lying on the table, so pinned on body)

Great news, I've actually finished the patchwork cover and is now on his bed. Keeping my fingers crossed that the seams will stay put and not come apart after being man handled by my son. Sorry that the picture is a bit dark but the due to where he has his bed.

Now, I wish I could stop being a dabbler, but I saw some tooth pick dolls and just had to have a go. They are less than 3" in height, a little fiddlely to do and made from 4 tooth picks. They were fun to do and will I make any more? I think I will as there's alot of room for improvement.

Blackberries are early this year, when I was little we used to go blackberry picking on our weeks holiday from school in October called Blackberry week. I've already frozen some and made some jam. I'm just wondeing what next to do with them as there is still plenty on the branches. Maybe make some wine??

Doesn't the time fly by, the kids have returned to school, the nights are drawing in, dark by 8pm and the leaves are falling. Summer has almost come to an end.
Still busy with my douvet cover, hopefully it should be completed by next week and then I can play again with my dolls, although I did find time to felt this little keyring

For once, my husband thinks I'm making something useful for a change, instead of making dolls and other embroidered items. I'm making a douvet cover for my sons bed. I thought I had lots of blue fabric, enough to do it in 4 inch squares. I've cut out over 800 squares and still cutting. My pile of blue fabric has disappeared. The first side is completed, thank goodness. It seemed a good idea when I started but now I'm wondering. Just have to keep plodding on.
