Very busy here preparing for a big market -
I'll give you the details on that next week!
My sewing machine is holding up well
- as long as I de-fluff nearly every day!!
Lots of free motion sewn flowers of course,
and I've sorted out how to display the big brooches
- pegged to the top of some little display stands, with added fresh leaves.
(will just need to make sure the sunflower is taller than the others of course)
As well as the neckpieces and brooches, I'm working on something else
that might be suitable for ladies going to the Spring races this year!xx

I've been working on some new floral brooches - which have alot of stitches.
Trying to pick out the details in faded fabrics.
Also using some felted wool rugs for a bit of a different look.
They are alot of fun to make, but really clog my machine up with fluff!
The bottom pick is of a shop order for neckpieces and also brooches.x

I have made some limited edition, special silk Frida Kahlo dolls.
These Frida's are all one of a kind. They're dresses are made from
dupioni silk, some having the dual shine of another colour at certain angles.
They have more jewellery, wraps sewn on to hold in place
and different trims to their long skirts. Some of them even have
one leg smaller than the other, just like Frida.
They are available in my etsy store here!
(there will also be some available at a design market I am doing next month)xx

Recently I was given some fabrics from other people's stashes!
One of which was this gorgeous 1960's swirly fabric from Nic.
Inspired by the fabric, this girl was made..
Shona is a redhead with blue eyes,
she wears a chunky vintage necklace (formerly a bracelet) and
black and white checked boots.
Find her over here.xx

Here are a few hints of The Silk Collection.
This will be a limited edition release of Frida doll's made from silk fabric.
Their jewellery, neckpieces and wraps will be a little
different from the normal Frida's I make.
They will be more elaborate, more luxurious.
I will put a few up in the shop to start with and there
will also be a some available at a design
market I am doing in a few months time.
