Dolls knitted outfit

Finally finished the dolls outfit. I haven't knitted anything like this since I had Karen.  Hope little Eva treats it with as much love and care as I have put into it.


Can't quite remember where this photo was taken, could have been in Maderia or maybe Spain, all I do know is that I was definitely lots younger and lots slimmer, and not afraid of wearing colours!!!! The octagons are cut on the Scan n cut from some of my Gelli plate practice pieces.  There is lots of inking and two colours of ribbon. The flowers are Tim Holtz tattered floral garland with a drop of liquid pearls. I think I'm loving this page and I hope you like it too. Inspiration came from Pinterest sketch.

Just a Heart

Just adding this heart very quickly.  I was looking for something else and came across this in Folded Book Heart. I love it. It's made from a hardback and uses the centre forty
pages. The are some very precise measurements and once you have them the rest is easy. If you want to have a go bring a hardback book with you, mine measured about 20 cms in length and had 286 pages.

I love this recycling of old books.

Hearts and flowers

Well here it is your very own valentines pressie.  If you have an old paperback or two then please bring them along. First there is the lovely open rose and second, well it's really an apple but leave off the leaf and stalk and it could pass for a heart do you think? I was thinking of making a few roses and sticking them onto an oasis or polystyrene ball to hang in my new bathroom for a bit of a shabby chic look. Well we will see!
