Fragrant and Fruity Experiments..

I've not been dropping in here very often lately because I've been indulgently taking time to experiment and try out ideas I've had for a while now.I'm still'officially' enjoying my creative adventures but thought I'd give you a little peek of what I've been up to lately.

This is my first Lovely Lavender Lady and she is a book loving maiden like myself.She is hand drawn on a piece of my freshest batch of tea dyed cotton and I have added touches of colour to her using fabric paint.She has a pink linen back and has been filled with polyfil and lashings of dried lavender.All hand sewn of course!and finished off with a dusky pink velvet ribbon hanger and bow.I can't wait to do some more and was thinking of adding some embroidery too.

Another new obsession is fabric fruit and I'm so taking with making them that I'm working on a whole new jewellery collection incorporating them.I guess it's the symbolism attached to fruit which has captured my imagination.I hope it won't be too long until I can show you the'fruits'of my labour(I'm sorry..that was unforgivable!)that will be for sale in my shops.

In the meantime,I have added a new 'Pretty Posy' brooch to Folksy shop the other day.A posy for a sweetheart that never withers.

Well Cheerio and take care.Thanks for popping by.
