Sophie's doll

Just a quick hello. This past week I have been battling the flu. I have never felt so sick in years. But pleased to say I am now on the mend and should be back to my normal weird self soon.

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 week thats been

Hello friends!
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 :)

You have mail

I picked my sister up from the airport last night. You wouldn't believe how much I have missed her and it's only been like 5 weeks since she left!! We are going to get up to lots of mischief in the few days she is here.
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
