An Introduction...

Welcome to my new blogspot...and to start, a little about my journey here...

I have a background in costume design and I have been making dolls for many years. My recent creations have been cloth dolls inspired by antique dolls and my family history (another of my favourite pastimes). I also love creating anything with fabric and I'm enjoying experimenting with different styles and designing unique items.

In this blog I will share doll info, tips and tricks that I have learnt over the years and also pics and even a few patterns, so please check back often to see what's new....

New faces

Just finished painting these three antique style dolls I now need to dress them (and some others) ready for the first of my Christmas fairs next week.

I don't seem to have quite so many dolls this time, but I do have loads of christmas goodies...

So busy...

I'm delighted to already be so busy...check my other blog for what's happening in my costume world (making a Dorothy costume today)
I'm also busy filling up my Etsy Shop
and if that wasn't enough I will be participating in 2 christmas craft fairs:
Crafty Christmas fair in aid of Forget Me Not charity
Christmas event with a twist
and just to finish me off (it probably will) I have two full cast sets of costumes to design and make for Shining Stars Theatre Schools...think I might be in need of a holiday!
