Oops,  how bad is that,  this is the first post for 2015.   Life has been busy,  the inspiration not always there, so the creative side has been a bit dormant.   Made a few fabric patchwork rugs just for us –  and not really a lot else until the last few weeks.  Had the usual Saturday evening surf on the net and found some inspiration to get me going again.   Decided to create some larger pieces that can be hung – these have an Angel theme and will be great for Christmas time, or any other time – always good to have a bit of glitter somewhere no matter what time of year it is!   The art dolls are made from recycled fabrics and embellishments, with some hand embroidery and hand beading.

These have a heavier backing which I think provides a better base for hanging.  Just need to find the best way to hang them.

This one is called Life is a Wonderful Fairytale:


and here is the back, which has been painted red and gold.


The next art doll is Speak the Language of Angels.  The stars are all handworked (both sides) with sequins and beads.

Loved the idea of making some wood blocks with vintage Father Christmas pictures.   It was a good idea,  but buying wooden blocks was impossible – so off to the builders depot I went.  It wasn’t their biggest sale of the day!   Then they had to be cut – not so easy as we don’t really have the right tools.  Still,  Jess is very patient with all my odd ideas,   and cut plus sanded the blocks.    I think they turned out pretty well.  I tied them with ribbon and put a little chocolate santa on the top.  (There is a different Santa on all four sides of each block).    Didn’t get to photograph all of them as I had posted off a few before I remembered that I hadn’t taken any shots.  And then had to wait for them to arrive before I could put anything up here.     The smaller blocks were just for us at home,  but I was quite happy with the glitter/glue effect.      Have a Happy Christmas!
