Here is a lovely sewing caddy doll, based on an antique in a museum in the usa. This doll can be purchased as a kit from http://www.gailwilsonsdesigns.com/ and is a real pleasure to make. I am currently making one in red gingham for myself, do check out her website for more unusual antique inspired dolls, with amazingly accurate instructions, but mostly for the experienced needlework person.

You will need the following,
into a large mixing bowl place--
two medium eggs, two large mugs full of self raising flour, one large mug full of caster sugar, one large mug full of margarine or vegetable oil and half a pint of milk, or a little more so that the mixture has the right consistency.
Mix it altogether to form a yummy mixture, then add three quarters of a very large bar of bournville chocolate chopped up and two large mugfulls of black berries and slowly fold in.
Place the mixture into cake cases within two muffin pans.

Here is a great idea I want to share with you. Pictured is a cropped cardigan knitted in Debbie Bliss's luxury tweed,--instead of using a traditional button to fasten up I have threaded large ribbon through the kneckline and created a ribbon tie !!! Easy-peasy!! Go on have a go, or if you dont have time email me and i can knit one to order--Happy Knitting!!
I have a never ending passion for bunnies !!
The appeal of the bunny never dies. These sweet little darlings are made with german mohair, have real glass eyes and vintage material. They are small and cute and make very sweet presents--no two are the same--I never keep a pattern.
After having moved house its been some time since I blogged, but I will be on track from now--as you can see I have updated the blog page , the header including a photo of some of the bunnies I make--I hope you like them. Here is a quick picture of a real sweet raggedy anne that I made , just using a simple face using good old vintage buttons, I hope it gives you some ideas of how the simpliest things can make you smile !!!
