Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe: Spring, Easter,Primitive hand dyed trim bag give-a...: I have been busy once again dyeing trims. Lots of spring colors for this trim bag and of course we need to give a couple away! This a beaut...

Now this is a give a way I would love to win,check it out and see what I mean


Hi All

have not done as much as I wanted this week,real life keeps getting in the way. I had a nice day out with my dad, we went shopping, Blood tests, and taking my 3 doggies to vets for their yearly jabs. so you can see my week was busy.

I finished off my lady sets, These are going on ebay, I also stated painting little shoes,they are so fiddly and take a long time,you can only paint one little bit and then wait for that to dry, It usually takes me nearly a week to paint them.

I did make 3 hats, these were little straw hats that I decorated, I am making hats today,last night just before I went to bed, I decided to cut out some hat shapes and get them ready for me to decorate this morning. That is once I have done my housework, get the washing done and fed the dogs,

Handbags at dawn

Hi All

Well my tablets are now starting to take effect and I have got my energy back and I am back to making minis.

I decided to make matching shoes to go with the handbags, I have got some plastic shoes,so I covered them with leather,I also made a pair from wood. they look all-right,but I do think I could do better, so   I am going to try and make some with modelling clay.

I made a set of Channel items, a hat with hat box, handbag with matching shoes and shoe box, vanity case full of goodies, all Channel of course.

Progress of the big shop,I have nearly  primed all  wood and I am hoping to get the rest painted this week, I really want to get it put together so I can start adapting it, Patient was never my strong point. 

anyway have a look at my photos
