Friday: Ta-dah!

Is it really Friday already? This week has just flown by, plenty of time in the green house and a fair bit of paperwork to deal with and a rather exciting commission have kept me busy.

Finally here she is, my lovely needle felted doll inspired by the feature in Homemade with Love magazine. She was great fun, lots of lessons learnt in the process. Next time I shall make a larger one first – those faces are fiddly – thank goodness I remembered a tip to needle felt the face flat then felt it on to the doll!

I’m rather pleased with her and she’s sitting in pride of place with my little Russian dolls. One day she will have a needle felted family all of her own, but that will have to wait.

I’ve really enjoyed this issue of Homemade with Love, and I’m rather excited to tell you that the next few issues are going to be absolutely fabulous …

For now my lips are sealed!

  1. She’s lovely! So colourful and soft!
    Smaller projects require less stabbing overall but are so much more fiddly!
    Good tip too about felting in stages. (The first time I tried a 3d figure I just stabbed away at a huge handful of a fibre clump for ages without layering or separating it first – I stabbed myself a few times in the process!)
    Hope to see more of your needlefelted doll family!
    OOh and a bit of a mystery to keep us all guessing!

  • Gonna get dirt under my fingernails, sctratched by rose thorns & probably break a nail or two - but I don't care! First photo shoot for new book is done & now I have six weeks before my hands need to look pretty again! The glamorous life of a crochet designer eh?!?

In a world where you can be anything, be kind, when all you have to offer is time, give it freely and without expecting anything in return.  Remember that compassion is the answer, always and forever. 
Three weeks ago I lost one of my best friends, but I have found solace in these 2 beautiful girls, now women, making their way in the world and knowing that they learned these lessons from the example set by their mothers.
I'm so sorry to everyone who is expecting a reply to an email, a letter or a facebook message. I am doing as much as I can, when I can, but I know I've fallen short of my usual efficiency!!!
