I can't believe it's coming up to my blog anniversary. So as is customary I would like to give away of my cornish fairies.
She is handpainted and can be hung up by the ribbon.

A rather undignified back view, showing her wired wings.
If you would like to win her leave a message after this post, and I will draw a winner out soon.
I have had the odd creative moment, both weilding a paintbrush and a needle.
We had (found!)some useful frames which I primed and had a play with acrylic paints.

Not very interesting kitchen picures!!

I tried a few ideas, but only liked this one(above).

This one got turned around to house an earlier applique. I was thinking along the lines of Julie Arkel where she uses box frames.

Excuse the wonky picture.
I am happier with another applique I started a while back. I tried some tea staining to bring the fabrics together.

It's not finished yet, but it revisits the 'memory' applique idea using some of my mums fabrics. I have ideas for dolls treated in an equally naive way.
That's all for now happy creating!

Happy Hopefull New Year.

I always seem to have lots of ideas for the new year. They don't always work out, but I can't help it! I try to review my work and move on. We are STILL throwing out and recycling things we don't want. For me it's a real tonic to thinking of new work, as I decide what I really like.
In the new year I hope to set up with a group of other cornish makers, so watch this space. I am debating whether to stay on Folksy, because it hasn't been very successful for me- but it may be a good outlet one day?
If you haven't done already, check out Cathy Cullis's 365 challenge on her website- on my task bar-I too would like to try and work every day on something creative.
In the new year I would like to work more on my papier mache, and make the dolls suitable for children i.e read my trading standards notes properly! Maybe make some clothes for them etc.
I would like to work on these-
