Half dressed makes..

I feel a little nervous so bear with me please.I thought I'd show you some of the work that is sitting on my desk waiting patiently to be blessed with some attention. 

This little grinning gal is waiting for some rosy cheeks and well deserved pretty hair bows and detail to her dress.She is the leader of a tribe of self assured but dreamy lasses and is inspired by my memories of endless summer wanderings with my best friend.I started these imagining them as plush dolls but now I quite like how they look in the hoop and wonder if I should present them as pictures(especially as I was intending on adding text also)..any ideas welcome:) 

And this is the bare bones of another 'Queen Bee'clutch bag.A different shape this time.

Well I can't take the credit for the embroidery thread but thought the colours were just so pretty;I couldn't resist taking a photo.I actually think I'm a little obsessed by embroidery thread..don't tell anyone.

This patchwork purse is still in a very raw state and waiting for it's leather back.I have a lot of very pretty scraps that I am trying to use so spending far to much time arranging and rearranging (artfully of course)

And lastly a little cloud that is part of a children's range I have been playing with for an age.And quite fittingly I have left my little blog note in the late evening so as the picture says 'Sweet Dreams'

BUT before I retire the extremely talented SketchStitch is having a giveaway on her blog that I highly recommend taking a peek at and entering of course(just click name)xx
