When I began drafting this post it occurred to me that it is all about mythical beings! So, I have "cut and pasted" and scrabbled around to get it in some kind of order!
First of all, I would like to share with you two fairy houses that I made a couple of years ago. The green one was made for my son, Aaron. He chose the fabrics himself from my stash - I think he has a great eye for colour!
I made the pink one for my friend's daughter for her First birthday and am in the process of making another for my little Rosie, in the same pink fabrics. I'm going to try some silk ribbon embroidery on that one. :-)
If you are interested, the pattern is by Julie McCullough of Magic Threads. It is very straightforward and, to date, has been the only project I have quilted - and I thoroughly enjoyed it! I would highly recommend the pattern to a beginner, it is quicker and easier than it looks! :-)
I have been playing with fabrics the past day or so in preparation for putting together a dragon quilt for my sister's niece. Actually, my sister (Linda) is my SIL... but she is too close to my heart to call her SIL... hence she is my "sister"! I just need to explain that because when I introduce her as being married to my brother, eyebrows begin to raise!! he he he... Anyway! Linda's niece turns One next month so I'm making a special gift - a "Puff the magic dragon" quilt. I shall show you my progress over the weekend!
The final Doll of the Day!
This happy little Leprechaun was made by Club member, Trish! He's such a joyful fellow isn't he? His love for life almost jumps out of the computer screen and dances with your spirit! (Insert Irish accent here and apologise for cliche!) Ahhh to be sure! To be sure!
Trish is a fabulous doll-maker and her faces are the happiest, prettiest and most cheerful that you could ever hope to see on a doll! :-)
I am off to my "dolly club" tomorrow, and then hopefully I'll get to catch up with some sewing in the evening.
Until next time - happy creating! x
