Ready for the New Year?

I hope everyone has had a very Happy festive season.....hectic here, but finally a bit of time to reorganise the thoughts and continue with the plans!! well we shall see.............
The Brus have been fires now need to concentrate on the painting. The Tonner dolls still hasn't arrived so I am beginning to stress a little on this one. I've made the hat and drafted the pattern but still need the actual doll to fit.

While the guest were here over Christmas I have managed to snatch a bit of time to begin the serious update on the Southern Belles website, then I'll look at my own and try and bring it up to date. But it all takes time..........

As i write the casts are poured and are drying out now. I'm very tempted to start cleaning but that's how it goes. SO..........

- The Bru project is underway
- The Robert Tonner design is begun and I sourced the fabrics yesterday. I'm a little stuck with this one until the doll arrives from the Tonner company, I hope its not too long as the time scale is tight on this one. I still need to source the straw braid for the hat but until the doll arrives and I know what colour hair she has I can't make a decision on colour.
- The last of the Christmas bear kits are done
- I'm just getting the designs for the AGM project sorted out now and hopefully I can start printing the fabric during the week

Its all go right now!

Its finally arrived!

I now have the mould to make the small 12" Bru on the chevrot leather body. We already have the 24" Bru which is the right size but so many people want to make the smaller doll.....I've gone with the flow!
I will get to work on the sample as soon as possible so she is ready for the project class to start after Christmas. Watch this space!
