Bobble Hat girl is almost finished. Was good to relax and enjoy making something different to my minor project although the print design on her dress came from some of my drawings. I'm really pleased with the colours!

Handmade Dolls

Now my minor project is over! :) I'm at a loose end but not for long I'm sure still a dissertation to finish and on Tuesday we will be given our Final Major Project Brief...... :/ So just to keep myself busy in between a little housework catch up! lol, oh the life of a Student.... I was looking through the latest Selvedge, Folk! Issue 31 Nov/Dec 2009 and came across the following dolls by Pip Squeak Chapeau and Apolline a Paris pop and have a look they are just gorgeous and the Apolline site is just a dream! Now I'm thinking, have a go see what you come up with after the Momiji Couture Contest doll who knows. ( The result for which is to be announced this week I believe watch the Momiji blogspot!) I'm knitting little bobble hats again and matching scarf and have some lovely linen as I want them to have a pure natural look about them, possibly a little scandanavian? Will post some pics soon as when I head back into college this week will print some little areas of the dresses before cleaning the screens for the Christmas break. Where has this year gone?.......

Excited to see that the Momiji Couture contest is being judged at the moment and to find that my Notecards and Egg Cosies all sold at the Knitting and Stitching Show at Harrogate this year! Also have deadline for minor project this Friday 12pm and then I'll be back on with writing my dissertation. Here is a drawing taken through to print for my minor project Illuminated Discharge on Haboti Silk, also put a photo of some birds I embroidered for a garment last year. Looking forward to Christmas with my family though will be chilling out together. No Degree work is coming with me, lol :)
