Wedding invite front

I had the wonderful privilege
of putting together a
wedding invite for two
very special young
people.My daughter
did all the photoshop
ing .And I drove her
mad with the many
changes of colour
and details.What an
expeience for the
two of us. We loved
every minute and
wondered what we
would do after we had finished them!The tag hanging on the side had the persons/couples name printed
on it.

Wedding invite back

We collaged the back
with pictures of her
fabric and created
buntings and pinwheels

LITTLE CUPCAKE DOLLIES

Got an urge to make a dolly.
And this is what transpired.!
My gran daughter saw it and put her order in immediately.
She of course gave me full instructions on what
hers should look like , from the colour of the skin had to be pink  to the fabric of the dress and then right down to the green crosses on her hands for her
 nail varnish.Dierk says she is spending too much
time in my sewing room.

Something " SWEET " is happening.............................................

SWEET CHRISTMAS

Something sweet is taking place
in my home.I decided to make chocolates to hang on the tree
this year. They look good enough to
eat ! I have made them out of cold porcelain so not edible and will not attract any ants or melt .I was amazed
 how tempted I was to take a bite when I had finished them.
My other favorite this year is the strawberry ,can't make enough of these.

LOOK ALIKE



Was great fun designing this bear,
it is for a young bear collector who
knows just what he wants.He bought
one from me that I had done in a
workshop many years ago then
asked for a look alike , could 'nt
get hold of the pattern so had
to just pray hard and there she is.
My family fell in love with her so
I am sure Rouke will to..
