Coming soon...your very own future King and Queen of England! This lovely peggie couple represent Wills and Kate on the announcement of their engagement complete with the wow blue and diamond engagement ring (in the form of a Swarovski crystal), and Kates now famous blue dress.
These dolls will be available as kits and will come with everything you need to make the dollies including high quality midnight blue felt, blue chiffon fabric, Swarovski crystal, beads, embroidery thread, and organza ribbon. Full instructions will be included with options to glue or stitch your dolls.
These will be available soon from my shop.
Found myself making pebbles last week at a friend's house for the Whitstable Harbour 'Dead man's corner' project (click on the project name to read more).
It was great fun, and we got carried away using up a whole bag of clay...
It was quite theraputic to grab a lump of clay and instinctively mould it into something. We pressed in found objects from the garden, moulded them around our hands and then got a bit competative making portraits of each other!
It was a nice change from having to be neat and tidy all the time...
This is a lot of fun..make your very own gingerbread house! The gingerbread houses below were beautifully made by the Homfray sisters and helpers!
Get your free instructions for this project (including gingerbread recipe!) from my 'free stuff' page.
I now have a selection of goldwork threads and metals for sale in the shop, including pearl purl, Japanese thread in two sizes, rococco and purls.
