I have joined a Christmas challenge on Amanda's Blog I Love Cloth Dolls. For the month of June, the challenge was to create something for your Christmas tree made from any medium that takes your fancy. I made a Vintage Christmas bauble, made from a variety of mediums, Material being the primary medium. Has been fun, now I have to think about what I am going to do for July.

Well, now that I have finished my Bee family I must get on with the cloth doll challenge that I am participating in at Cloth Doll Artistry. The theme is an Americana Patriotic doll. This should be an enjoyable time; I have an idea of what I want to achieve, the challenge for me being an Australian is to get the American Patriotic ideas in my head, and not be a typical foreigner. Ha Ha

Project finished finally. Have been working on this one for a little while and could not find the colours that I wanted frustrating when suppliers don't have what you want, so she has not come out the way I had anticipated. So she is a queen bee with her Angelina Jolie/Pitt lips and a very sick baby bee. Well, i guess practice makes perfect, I am glad to get it finished. The pattern is from Back Porch Pickings, Have not done anywhere near the justice that it deserves.

Well, i tried out the new pattern, it would be nice for a child maybe something to carry their things in, or maybe something to put your knitting into if you are going out and want to knit. Well, I'm I'll find something to do with it.

I have been wanting to try making lace with my embroidery machine for a long time, so yesterday I downloaded a couple of free samples of Sue Box Creations embroidery for my Janome machine and here is the result I am extremely satisfied with the outcome. I can see this being sewn onto one of my dolls with a bit of bead work on it as well, of course, i think I will age it a bit.

Found one of my very first. Hmmm, I don't know what you would call it i guess maybe patchwork but maybe not? I made this table runner for Christmas one year and it is now one of those i suppose you could call a traditional family heirloom now that comes out every christmas. I got it from a Handmade magazine a few years ago, not 100% sure which one will have to look for it. Never throw away any magazines. Would be happy to try it in different Christmas colours so that when I change my colour theme for the year I still have the runner in different colours.

Today I've been surfing the internet, discovering the vast range of dolls styles that are around. I found a couple of really great artists at Primitive Gathering. I would love to be able to create gorgeous dolls like they do. I have been working on ideas for dolls and experimenting; I've loaded a picture of a couple that I have made over the years. Shamus and The Little Mermaid. The Mermaid was my very first doll that I had ever made.

This is day one of the beginning of the dream that I have had for a very long time, to start putting my creative ideas to use and create something that will bless others and hopefully to one day generate an income doing what I love. I love making dolls, cross stitching, really if you put the word craft to anything, then I like doing it. I also love decorating, so I am going to try and combine all of these interests and see what I come up with. Day one and I have already designed my first doll. When I have constructed it, I will put up the photo.
