A Very Prepared Little Red!

I've just finished this doll for the CWT "Little Red Rides Again" online event.

This Little Red is not your usual sweet, naive little Little Red is thoroughly prepared for an encounter with a lupine gentleman. The book she clutches is called 'Canis Lupus - A Study', so she will not be caught unawares by a chance meeting in the forest. Forewarned is forearmed, as they say!
Thanks to everyone who has already left a comment on my last post - celebrating 100 followers. I'll be revealing the prize and conducting the draw next weekend, so there is still plenty of time to join in the fun!

A Celebratory Giveaway!

I have noticed that my list of followers is currently at 99 - anytime now, I expect it will hit 100, which I regard as some kind of milestone. So, to celebrate, I am offering a prize - something handmade from my studio. To be in the running, please comment on this post (with your email so that I can contact you if you are the winner). To choose the winner, I will number all the comments after a cutoff next Sunday (2nd August) and draw a number out of a hat (or other suitable receptacle!)
Join in for the fun!

A Sneaky Peep

Here is a little peep at my 'Sylph' - can't reveal all until the ADO blog event this weekend.

I've also listed this 'Clothover Kit' in

Should have more new stuff soon (Iknow, I know - I said that last week too!)

WIP Update

Here is my Sylph, 'Aeris', with most of the assembly completed. She now needs to be prepared for painting and then painted. I haven't yet decided finally on a colour scheme, but I'm veering towards something fairly muted and limited. With blue.

I've Been Busy!

Apart from getting new items ready for my Etsy store (, I have been working on my ADO 'Elements' challenge piece - here are some w.i.p. pictures. I need to get a wriggle on with this because I only have about nine days to get it completed. I'm calling this piece "Aeris - an Airy Wraith".
I also have this new head ready for a body. The glorious Tibetan lamb wig is from and was part of my prize for winning the 'Discworld' challenge. I got to choose stuff from their wonderful online store - I chose two colours of this Tibetan lamb (each piece is big enough for three or four wigs) and a yard of wool blend felt in a yummy cinnamon colour - I'm planning to use it to make some dolls with moulded felt heads, which is something I haven't done in a while. Dollmakers Journey has a great list of quality stuff for dollmakers - worth checking out if you haven't yet done so.

I will most likely be posting some new things on Etsy this weekend.
