Actually, we are a pretty exhausted family as the past couple of weeks have seen us packing, cleaning and relocating Grandparent SUDs into their new home. But yesterday my crafty mo-jo made a comeback and I went fabric shopping!
I've had this pattern for a few weeks now and finally purchased fabrics to make it.
What could possibly 'top' a new doll pattern? A Christmas one, that's what!! he he he...
This little beauty was designed by the very talented Annie Smith of Country Keepsakes. I couldn't find a blog for Annie, but if you are interested, Faerie Noelle can be purchased at The Stitching Post.
And talking of dolls, the lovely Deb from The Angel and the Pukeko contacted me a while ago to ask me if I would like her collection of doll patterns, as she no longer used them. So I now have a few more lovelies in my collection - thank you Deb! xx (She is definitely the 'Angel' out of the duo!! LOL)
While purchasing fabrics, I also picked up these fresh tones for my next original design... so stay tuned!
Oh look - you can see where I used to live - that little red blob is England! Can you see my old house? he he he...
I wish I knew the name of this fabric range, it is divine. Wouldn't it make a great travel-journal cover? I will be using it for something 'useful' and will share next week once the Birthday Girl has received it!
Update: This fabric range is called Peace on Earth and is by Three Sisters for... Moda. Thank you Jeanette, for advising us! :-)
Right - I am off to sew! What are you up to this weekend?
