Is too early to think about Christmas ? Not for the Gumnutters Doll group! Last Saturday, our project was to make a "scrappy angel" . Obviously so called, because they are made with scraps of fabric. I made mine 50% of the original pattern size, so they could be little Christmas tree decorations. I am usually still making Christmas things on Christmas Eve, so it seems rather amazing to me that I have at least two decorations made this early. Thanks to the Gumnutters for motivating me.
This week, I was really surprised and delighted to see my Artist Trading Card (ATC) Doll featured on the homepage of the ATC Doll Group site. I made two ATC dolls as part of a monthly swap which had a theme of Coffee/Tea. ATC dolls are made on a card base, the size of an artist trading card/playing card. Other attachments can be added, but must fold down to the card size. For my tea ATC doll, I used the tea bag packet from my favourite tea, Lady Grey and created a vintage Lady Grey, complete with cup and saucer. The other one, the Coffee ATC doll recycled a 'saying' given to me on a card from a friend, Connie. It was fun making these, and quite a relaxing diversion from my other activities.http://www.nceata.org/
