This sweet horse I whipped up yesterday for a birthday present for a horse mad girl. First attempt at making a horse like this and she turned out pretty cute.
I have so many ideas running around in my noggin at the moment that I want to sew up. So excited.

Starting from today I am going to post inspirational photos, quotes etc on Mondays to help us remind ourselves that it's the simple things in life that count and to feel better about yourself to carry through with you for the rest of the week.
Happy Monday everyone

I would like to show you a sneak peek at a new doll I am designing. So far she is coming together nicely. Still need to tweak a few things but she should be finished soon.
I have also been busy making pirates. I showed my two pirates that I had made a year ago to the girls at work and the orders came pouring in. I made this fellow for the lovely Sarah and I'm happy she loves him.
So hopefully today I will get stuck in and make three more cheeky pirates. Although it's going to be hard to stay inside on this beautiful hot spring day we are currently having on the Gold Coast.

Morning all! I am up bright and early on this beautiful Saturday morning. I wanted to share with you my little Ragga Muffin doll I made for my mother on her birthday last weekend. She was such a delight to make, I especially love her wee shoes! *squee* She is from the pattern by Gingermelon I bought a while ago. My mother loves her as much as I do and I'm thinking I will make her a little friend for Christmas.
Speaking of Christmas! My gosh I swear the Christmas decorations come out earlier and earlier. I first noticed them at the beginning of September. How crazy is that! But it's got me thinking about making some felt ornaments for my Christmas tree this year :) They probably wont go with my star wars ones but meh I love those ones too!!

I made my little niece a doll the other day. I tried a little something new with her lips which I think turned out rather well. I will be posting her off to Sydney. I hope she likes her :)
I have had a whole lot of ideas running around in my head which I should write down! but I can't wait to start bringing them to life. Stay tuned.

The past week was pretty awesome because I got to spend time with my sister who was visiting from New Zealand. Even though she got food poisoning the day after she arrived then when she recovered from that she was struck down with the flu. Dear oh dear!! And now my boy has got man flu so I will be looking after him for the next couple of days. I am not sick......yet *touch wood*
So not much crafting has been going on recently. But I will show you my little naked raggedy doll I am making. I just need to make some little clothes for her. But she is ever so sweet already.
My sister and I went for a hunt for writing sets as a gift for her friend and we could not find them ANYWHERE! We love writing letters because it's more personal than email and it is exciting to check the letter box to find a pretty envelope addressed to you (plus my sister likes to put confetti in them so when I open it, it goes everywhere!) So in the end I decided to make my own. It came out pretty good so I will probably be making more in the near future :)

So it was her birthday on Monday and finally she was able to open her present from me. I designed and made a fabric mail/letter set folder. Thankfully she absolutely loves it. We write to each other every week so I know she will get good use out of it.
My other sister Tanya a few months back won some postcards from the very talented Wonderforest. I was so happy that she had won because I know how gorgeous they would look in her baby girls room. But she also gave me one in a pretty pink frame!!! I haven't decided where I'm going to put it yet but I will probably hang it up in my sewing room. So thank you Tanya, you are the best! xxx

My sister is arriving for a fleeting visit this Thursday for a couple of days!! I am looking forward seeing her again. I just hope her flight doesn't get cancelled from the ash cloud. It is her birthday tomorrow and I have made a special something for her which I will post about later after she has recieved it!! Exciting
I will leave you now with this sweet music video I found.

So this here is the start of my granny square. I will have to start again because I feel it's too small and tight but it is starting to resemble some form of crochet instead of a knotted mess! Practice makes perfect.
