It's been a while since I managed to write this blog. I've had a week in Cornwall visiting my Mum and brother who have lived there for around 10 years. The journey is a 6 hour drive (eek) but worth it to see my Mum and for the beautiful scenery in that part of the world. She lives 10 minutes walk from the sea and I wish I could spend more time down there as I love it. We went out and visited some beautiful National Trust gardens and also spent half a day in St. Ives, which was lovely. It was also my brother's 50th birthday so we all went out to dinner and my sister and her husband came down to join us for the weekend. We rented a stone converted barn for the stay and it was amazing. Just a small place but lovely and cosy inside. I didn't want to come back ! Below are some photos of the gardens we visited. The pond was cute and the Rhodedendrons were in bloom and fantastic.
I've been preparing some Annies to put on either eBay or Etsy, can't decide. 3 of them I needle rooted the hair in and hand drew and coloured the faces with pencils....little bit of a change from my usual style. The little ones are around 10" tall. I forgot to photograph their feet as they all have little white socks on and handmade black felt shoes. The largest Annie is more traditional and this might be the one that goes on eBay. Please feel free to comment and let me know what you think. They were all made from a Sweet Meadows Farm pattern.
I've got a few idea for dolls and will hopefully create some more over the next few weeks. I'm also going to make a little elephant to keep my bear company in the Etsy shop, lol. I'm happy to sell the dolls if anyone is interested, please e-mail and I will send more photos.
Hope everyone had a good weekend and will be back soon.Thank you for reading my blog x
