Newest little designs going on etsy later. My moof doll Angel really liked the green one! I have so many ideas in my head my hands can't work quick enough.

This is the baby I was working on all week using (full price!) yarn in 100 per cent pure silk (gorgeous to crochet with!) and sequin scattered yarn. Sold the dress straight away, much to the dismay of Teagan who had really taken a shine to it as you can see in the pics! I usually try to recycle old yarn and fabric as I like the vintagey feel but I just wanted to create something special. I think it's lovely....wish I could make one to fit me

Here are the newest additions to the Polly family. My moof doll I have called Angel as she looks like she comes from somewhere else! The Strawberry shortcake dolls are all washed and their hair is drying while I am busy making cool little outfits for them. Also on the crochet hook is a very luxurious outfit for Blythe (silk, lurex and sequins) I will post pics when it is finished!

All I did was win an old Sindy on ebay as it reminded me of when I was little. This has led to a complete obsession .........3 more dolls, clothes, knitting, sewing and taking photos of them. Honey (my blythe doll) is really happy to have some friends but I'm not sure my bank account is! Here are some picsthat I have been busing taking instead of doing the housework.

I am really rather pleased with the new bag hot off the crochet hook. It evolved rather than was planned, as are most of the things I do! I wanted something really pretty and colourful to brighten up my wardrobe after the winter and this seems to have done the trick.
My Garden is in full growing mode at the moment and I have a lot of work to do in it but I still find time to create..........I have to for my own sanity!

Last Wednesday a 60 year old man who has worked for our small family engineering business for 30 years and who got on very well with all of us, plunged a knife between the shoulderblades of my husband. He meant to hurt him badly. The knife missed all vital organs and spine by 1/2". He is obviously mentally unstable but this does not stop us all being very confused. He handed himself in to the police later that night and said it was a fit of rage and he was sorry ( I did not want to know this) We are very lucky to still have Kev with us and he is fine and back at work, but it has left us dazed. The man has been let out awaiting court. I can't think about it all too much because we need to move on but I had to post it here as it is now part of me.
It makes life seem even more special though.

Here is Honey in her new outfit, thanks to mimiwoo (ebay seller) for sending her new footwear and shades to finish it off. She really likes the little vintage diamante buckle I found in my rather large button collection. Kev thinks I am too old for Dolls..........am I bovverred?

Just signed up for swapbot after hearing about it on Craftypod podcast. I have always wanted to participate in swaps but felt like it was all too confusing and didn't want to do anything wrong and upset anyone. This was very easy to understand and I am hoping it will be great fun. I have signed up for the little handmade bag swap as I love making bags, so this should be a good start.
My most recent bag I am really enjoying using is made of ice cream and fruit printed vinyl with needle felted cherries on it, lined with yellow gingham. It has brightened up what is usually the most grey month of the year!
Also Honey's wardrobe is expanding still. I have knitted a little silver dress and made some silver leggings for her. I just need some footwear that will match.
I have put a pic up of her in a little pink coat I adapted from a vintage Barbie pattern, and a little pink and purple scarf from some lovely oddments I had.

I'm back and here is my new friend Honey (bought in tokyo from the coolest place ever, and carried all the way home to the UK very carefully and with lots of love!) She is having lots of attention and new clothes and enjoying being photographed. I had the best time ever on our round the world trip, but so much wish I could just get back and buy more stuff!
I have been so busy with our business at the moment but slotting a bit of crafting in here and there. I made myself a nice little tote bag and reading my japanese craft books over and over again. Well not reading but looking anyway! Japanese magazines are wonderful.
The lack of blythe stuff here in the UK is a bit frustrating but I am trying to be inventive as usual and make everything myself. Any UK info would be lovely ........anybody.......I am feeling like Honey would like a friend. But don't tell my hubby!
