Vintage wallpaper.

I am still making jewellery, which in this cooler weather is taking ages to dry.
I have also tried photographing work - which is not my forte!
Even on a tripod they come out blurry.
I did manage a few that were O.K.
I have been trying to sort bits out in my studio, and I am still working on my 'bits and bobs' ( from dotty angel) wall. I bought some old -vintage I should say! wallpaper and it reminded me of the colouring on grandad pyjamas, the stripey type. I got out some other papers I had, and  quickly albeit a bit wonkily made something anew.
From This,

To this.
Excuse the blurry picture!
I also clothed two tiny babes.
In scraps of fabric.

They are very tiny - even the matchbox is a mini one.
I think I'll make them a tiny quilt too.

I have also been working on my website to make it a bit clearer! I have found my shop difficult because it doesn't take the item off when it's sold, so with one off pieces it's impossible to use. So I have just got jewellery for sale, and an archive of work with links to Folksy. I'll see how it goes!
Any feedback is welcome.
Happy Creating!


  1. Love the re-do its so colorful....and the brooch is so unique!!

  2. Hi Felicity, another good thing about having a giveaway or a craft it forward is meeting different people. Loved visiting your blog and seeing your lovely makes. Also enjoyed discovering Alice Apple. Too much temptation out there for the food shop money to be cut in half this week.

  3. Hello Felicity, well done you with your web-site; a step too far for me at the moment, I'm not thinking about having a shop just yet - one step at a time!
    I'm seeing so much in your work that speaks to me, especially your dolls which I find very fiddly to make. I too enjoy applique, and find it quite addictive, whether on a large quilt, or on much smaller pieces.

    Anyway, hi and bye for now!

  4. Thankyou for your lovely comments and stopping by. It's really enjoyable to discover new blogs and everytime I wonder whether I should continue...I see other people sharing such wonderful work, and it does seem worth it!

  5. Ah, no, keep going, Felicity! It would be a shame not to share your super work.
