busy busy busy, and a giveaway.

I noticed (abit late) that my last post was my 100th post. There seems to be a bit of a trend of a crafted giveaway going on to celebrate mile stones , so i'll join... more on that later.

Have been very busy here. Trying out new things, crafting, playing etc. The kids are slowly one by one coming down with the flu now though, and last night it grabbed me :(
Luckily Beady seems to be fine though, and is keeping us all busy threatening to take her first moves

This little gal arrived in the post though, and is making me feel better. I love Kewpie dolls (i am so not a blyth person) and was pleased to find this one from the 60's . Her name is Daisy, and i plan of making her some new clothes in the future.

Meet Florence, (i am afraid this is not the giveaway my mum already has her) She is from a vintage pattern doll, and i had such fun making her you might just catch some joining my Floppety Bunnies for sale in the future. She had pantyloons, peticoat, dress and apron. In the future i vote on more ribbon and lace.

Other than that my friend Caroline and I decided to have an over msn craft along !! She choose a shawl for us this time. She beat me to the finish, but i protest it was because i was making a doll at the same time!! This pink one was hers

And this green one is mine...

Which brings me nicely onto my giveaway. I made two green shawls., so that one could be for some lucky blog reader.

Leave me a message (with a contactable e-mail) and in a weeks time (sunday 27th April) I shall pop the names in a hat and pick a winner :)

You definitely have talent. Green is my favorite color, so I'd really love to win the shawl. :)
