Before anything else, I’d like to say a great big “thank you”
to everyone who has made such nice comments about my new Rosie and Bear designs
. I hesitated for a while before committing to this series of blocks because it’s quite a large project and I wasn’t sure if people would enjoy it. But you do!! And thank you again. I’ve been busy with January and above is a sneak preview of that naughty Bear perched on a snowman’s hat with a pawful of snow ready to fling at Rosie.
One or two people have remarked though that they think Bear’s fur would be challenging. It’s not … honestly .. I only use 3 different colours of floss and straight stitches. But … I did wonder if you’d like me to put a free tutorial togther for my method of creating fur? Please let me know via the poll at the top of the blog and if there’s demand, then I’ll put one together for you.
In the breaks from Rosie and Bear I’ve also started on another project – and here’s a second sneak preview. Won’t tell you what it’s for yet – but there will be a giveaway when it’s complete .. so watch this space!
And finally .. was in one of our charity shops last week and picked up this fabric. I simply had to have it. I have no idea what I’m going to do with it – any suggestions anyone? And does anyone know anything about it? I’ve googled dollie dressmaker but can’t find anything, guessing it’s 1960s from the designs, but would love to know more ….
