Dolls, & Hair bands

Jean the proprietress of Needle Little Love emailed me to say that she received the 3 little gifts I made for the 3 ladies of her home. A snoogem for Zoe, a hair band each for Alison and Jean. I initially wanted to sew up a hair band for wee Zoe but I am not too sure what measurements I should go with. So I figured better be safe than sorry :) I made her a doll!

The snoogem was really fun to make and can be found at Mel's blog, a born crafter without a doubt. The front of the snoogem is stitched with stem stitch on calico and the backing is red gingham. I suppose you could substitute the flower with a button but I dare not risk it since Zoe is a toddler. Mel's tutorial can be found here.

As for the hair band tutorial, you can find it here. I've added a strip of blue rick-rack on Alison's hair band, just to jazz it up a little!

I'm been busy lately and have not been stitching at all, in fact I'm trying to wind down on blogging and commenting on blogs. You good people out there will notice that you've not heard from me lately but don't you fret none. Please know I do read your blogs not immediately but eventually. Just my way of keeping tabs ;)

You'll hear less of me. I'll pop in here once in a while...maybe :) Nothing to worry about, I'm fine and want you all to know that. Just that lately I am not jiving in the blogging department and it's zapping me up. I'll take some time off and see what that does ;) Till then take care everyone.

Gift exchange

I made a pouch for NNC's 1st Anniversary Meet's Lucky Draw. My gift was drawn by Rose.

And a little something that I made for Jackie.

NNC's 1st Anniversary Meet

We had a blast!! There was so much merriment, loud chatter and did we eat? ;) I had a great time and following are the lovely, lovely gifts I received from my fellow crafter friends :D I shan't keep you in suspense.

This is a posting award given by Nik for the 1000th and 15,000th posting. It's a couple of lovely pincushions.

Lovely crocheted bookmarks from Usha and I, got an extra crocheted heart ;) She also made some X'mas gift tags for me. Ah... arent they grand?

The talented June made a wrist pincushion for all of us! Just so so cute.

Tatting maestro Faizon, made for each and everyone of us a tatted ring ornament. Exquisite in every way.

Dear Margaret, helped by her sis Jackie did a fabulous job by stitching a fob with our initials. They're so awesome and so perfectly finished!!

This is my gift exchange from Lillie. We had a lucky draw and I was fortunate to have drawn Lillie's gift. It's so delicate and pretty in pink. A pinkeep ornament. Truly a piece of art.

Thank you everyone for all the lovely gifts and the wonderful company. I had a great time.
