Christmas Lady.

Here,s that dreaded C. word again. A couple of pictures of my latest doll which will go onto Folksy soon.




She's a hanging decoration with little bells on her legs - I love jingly bells at Christmas!
I have also been covering buttons recently, so I made one especially for her.

Cornish fairies and baking.

I have now reinstated a baking day. I did get my food certificate recently and have already started baking for Fridays country market. I love the back to basics cooking, seasonal produce and no unnecessary ingredients of what was the W.I. ( I suddenly feel very old!) So here are my recent efforts.

Naked Cakes.


All plastered with icing- just how we like them!

I have also been working on ideas, some christmas - reluctantly. I do love christmas but the run up is getting rediculous.
One very messy workspace, but I do have to have everything out, who am I kidding O.K. a fraction of my stuff out then.


A few little brooch ideas.


And some ideas from last christmases cornish fairy. I love trying to make ideas into 3D so this is based on...

...this one. It's proving very fiddly but interesting, and rather funny from some angles



!


That's better.
Happy sewing everyone!

St. Matthews Fair, Liskeard.

On Saturday the Piccy Tree that I was helping out on, had its first outing. The town had plenty of stalls, a funfair and a French market. I ended up helping out with my son in the procession holding a banner. The Piccy Trees were so colourful and every banner told a story about the area. 

My applique panel and other colourful pieces made at local centres and schools.
We set off from the Liskerret centre (a hub of local activity!)with a fab samba band.
And ended up at the fair!

Also in town were members of  the Sealed Knot, demonstating weapons and cooking from the time of the 1600's

A warm welcome at Stuart House (a place where King Charles the I'st stayed)

At last a piccy.

As I said I have been trying to put pictures on my blog from my computer without success. Now I have tried a very long winded way through the picasa album and...............

SUCCESS!
Now I'm tired and I want to go to bed surely there is an easier way!
