Makes in process : Day three

A sketch of a 'Jorinda' doll I am hoping to make.Jorinda(the love of Joringel)was turned into a bird by a wicked witch and after many years of singing her sorrowful song in a rusty cage she was saved by her love and transformed back.Grimm ended his tale in the traditional happy way however I wondered if after all those years Jorinda might have still had some birdy ways and what if she hadn't completely transformed back...would they live happily ever after?

Playing with clay

As promised here is a glimpse of the first of my makes in progress. She needs an awful lot of beauty sleep so I have to whisper but a bit of sanding and some colour on those cheeks and she will be ready to parade her peculiarly pretty face.
See you tomorrow,

Finally I can focus...what joy!

The title of this post has two meanings.As of late I have been struggling to focus on which creative path I want to skip along and also quite simply my poor tired eyes have been suffering too.
Years of very late night reading and detailed stitching have taken their toll on my eyes.For the last couple of months every time I sat down in front of the computer screen to tip tap out some little words to your good selves;I ended up with streaming blurry eyes and headaches.So off to the spectacle shop I finally stumbled where I was presented with some lovely shiny new spectacles.

Everything looks so bright and fresh!I feel a little bit silly that I hadn't realised sooner that I needed them especially since my mother and grandmother are spectacled but I've always had a tendency to overlook the most obvious explanation(quite literally in this case!)So now I have a new addition to my wardrobe..lots of fun to be had.

If you are regular caller you might have noticed that I've been redecorating my blog and I'm still mucking around I mean redesigning it so bear with me please.Headache free computer using is a bit of a novelty at the moment so I got a bit carried away!
Regarding not being able to focus creatively,I have been working through quite a lot of custom orders lately but with new work I have been slightly flitting from one idea to another.So I thought I would just show the newest pieces that I have listed on Folksy over the past couple of weeks and then each day this week I'll post a picture and a brief description of my unfinished makes.(I thought that would be a good way to get back to blogging regularly)So here goes..

So lovely to have a catch up and I'll be back tomorrow.Have a lovely day,
Take care
