Na na na na na na na na.........


Got some new fabric through the week. I can't wait to cut into this lot!

I'm off work this week. Hope my new purse fames arrive soon. It's been three weeks since I ordered them. They shouldn't be too far off. Haven't received the book I won yet either.

Going to launch Frankenstitchery in a couple of days, so keep your eye peeled for that!

I collect Asian Ball Jointed Dolls. I have done since 2005. It was a natural progression from the collectors Barbies and other fashion dolls I have. In August 2010 I received a doll with an Asian face sculpt. I named her Iris and started drafting a pattern for a Chinese dress which I have been working on it on and off ever since. It's just about finished. I just need to sew the studs on the back.

I was planning on making her a wardrobe full of Chinese dresses in defferent colours but I don't think that will happen, though there is a lovely green Chinese satin in the shop...........

Drac in the Bag

So this is the bag I finished off on Tuesday

I started off another one today. When I went to put the frame on I realised it's the last one of this type I have. I've got some coming form China (same as above but with loops for a strap) but they won't be here for a while. I guess I can still make the bags up so they're ready and waiting when the frames get here. It's either that or I do some pattern construction for the different frames I have [groan].

As tomorrow is Easter Monday I have an unexpected day off work, so I will be trying to finish off some doll sewing that I have been meaning to do for ages. There's a doll meet in Glasgow next week so it would be good to have it done for that.

Oh! I won a book! I left a comment on the Mollie Makes site and won one of the giveaways  :)
