I'm really looking forward to this weekend...I'll be taking a variety of works in progress...might even get a couple finished while I'm there!

I've had a busy weekend at the Water's Edge Easter craft fair...there were lots of visitors and I made a few new friends during the weekend. It's much more like a social event than work, but still quite tiring! I'm looking forward to my next fair and hoping that my new stand will be ready as I can't fit all of my new dolls on this one!

I made this doll from brown brushed cotton denim, so the fabric is very thick and heavy, but has a beautifully soft touch!! I have to say I think this is the easiest fabric ever to paint, the paint glided so smoothly on to the surface and stayed exactly where it should with no bleeding...must get some more of this fabric!

I've been busy working on some new dolls...they're all painted and ready to finish, though not without a few difficulties along the way. The darkest doll is made in recycled brushed denim and although she was very difficult to turn and sew due to the thickness of the fabric, she was a dream to paint! I can't say the same for the other darker doll, she was made in a very soft pure cotton from a shirt and I discovered that the paint bled very easily, so although she was easy to turn and sew, she was a nightmare to paint!
