This is a selection of some of the christmas cards I have been making in preperation for Christmas Market in The Clarion Hotel in Sligo 12-6pm 5th and 6th December. Busily making other items hopefully will have ready in time for this weekend!
This boy doll is an updated version of the 1st boy doll I made a few weeks ago. Dressed for the winter season with a cuddly scarf and bright yellow boots to keep his toes toasty warm this boy doll is off to Dublin via Dromahair a pal for Lucy Lou. Bon Voyage!

Really pleased with how this turned out in spite of the fact that each time I tried to rotary cut the satin it somehow got stuck into the cutting mat pulling threads as I prized it free. I am almost a week late but Anna-Marie you will be the same age all year! happy benifit of this you can party anytime to celebrate (note to self next time we meet must party) the occasion, so it figures that if you get the present there before the years done its ok! Well thats my story anyway.

This has been a week for boy themed projects these quankies were made to suit. Now that I have these made I think the fabric with the car graphic would totally work for added umph! on boy doll Joshua's jacket. The little fish fabric was from my stash and used in a quilt project in the hawkesbury valley, Wisemansferry Australia that was some time ago oh the memories, warm weather, sun baking ....... realise have become attached to the fabric but must reduce stash and learn to let go.....
This is a boy doll I have been working on ( special request) he has electric blue eyes, stitched mouth , rosy cheeks and a sown in purple star shirt a fleece jacket and denim jeans made from old jeans i had lying around. I think his blue fleece jacket needs a little jazzing up! His hair is black and white and a little loopy!
