well my first one was a bit of a dodgy effort. I increased the size of the pattern to 200% instead of the 150% (on purpose as I wanted something bigger). Georgie loved it, so have decided to still post a photo (I am a bit of a perfectionist so if things aren't perfect I trash them). The other one is one that Lucia chose herself, not really what I would have put together but she was determined & picked it all out herself. She turned out quite cute, but Lulu won't let me put the apron on that I made as it covers up the cupcakes. Mmmmm a few more cut out & I think I will continue making these gorgeous little dolls for some pressies. As most of our friends have girls I am sure they will go to lovely homes!!! Here is where you can find the free pattern, they are called Black Apple dolls & of course are from Martha Stewart, I love that woman!!!. You can also find some beautiful ones here, of course my clever crafty friend, as always does a fantastic job!!! She is awesome. Always sharing her skill, finds & helping me out. She is never competitive & so generous!!! Now if only I could find the time to finish all my uncompleted sewing projects - namely 2 quilts, 2 bags & numerous other things!!!
Also have been doing a bit of scrapping, I LOVE all the new American Craft papers & all my new fiskars punches (gotta love contacts in the States) & had so much fun with this LO. This is one of our only family photos, I really have to remedy that, but Anthony is soooo not into it. A friend gave us an amazingly generous voucher to a beautiful photography studio for free photo shoot. He has told me go get some photos with you & the girls. LOL. Guess the idea of a family canvas might be a little while off!!!
So that's it for me now. The holidays went way too fast & we are back into the swing (sort of) of school run, lunches etc. Liv is really missing the girls & we have been so busy catching up with friends who are over from France. Will post some photos & love soon. Happy Days. Me xx
