Stella


I have been verrry productive today,  and since that is not a regular occurrence, I am feeling very self-satisfied... :) I finished an embroidery sampler, I whipped up a cushion, that may end up as a wall hanging (that is for another post), did some photo organisation and even had time to sketch a few ideas that I have had rattling around in my head... all whilst doing my last minute prep for an embroidery workshop that I am teaching tomorrow.... So after I introduce you to Stella, I am hitting the sofa with Mr Cadbury, to watch the Olympic closing ceremony!


Here she is......

Stella is completely hand stitched and stands around 15" tall. I LOVED working on this little girl, she has a teeny tiny rose in her hair, made from lovely dusty rose felt.



I get consumed whilst working on these dolls, stitching wee shoes, adding trim to a ditsy print skirt....



By the way, if anyone wants to know, I get all my felt from The Felt Fairy I just love her felt, in fact I am collecting it lol... she has 70 colours and I have found that the colours she shows in her shop are really very accurate, I always get the colour I am looking for! I get my supplies from her ebay shop but she sells elsewhere, all the links are on her blog, go check her out she is super sweet!


Ok I'm off to watch the closing ceremony, better get my tissues I always cry at these things. ;)
