it’s this time again

…the days are getting shorter, some trees are starting to show a hint of yellow and a drop in temperatures call for some cozy hand knits… – autumn isn’t far way and it’s my favourite time of the year

So, I have been busy crafting behind the scenes and believe it or not, some jolly felted snowmen are already in the works and keeping me company in my studio…. but that’s for a bit later still.

Today I’d like to announce a wee shop update for Wednesday, 9 September 2020 at 7pm UK time.

This little wool dog (fully felted and soft sculpted figure, 15cm in sitting position) and a whimsical set (two baby dolls, felted bunny in a cosy sleeping bag) will be available for adoption.

I hope you are all well and safe wherever you are. Thank you for stopping by – happy crafting and see you again soon, if you wish.

Mimi

Today, I’d like to introduce you to Mimi.

Mimi is a small art cloth doll figurine; just about 21cm tall, button-jointed and soft-sculpted with a charming expression.

Mimi is wearing cotton pants, a tutu, knitted jumper and felt shoes.

Please note that this is a decorative figurine and not a toy due to small parts and the delicate nature.

Mimi will be looking for a loving new home on Wednesday, 19 August 2020 at 7pm UK time. You will be able to find her here.

Thank you so much for visiting! x

Monty

Today, I would like to introduce you to Monty, my newest little bear.

Monty

Monty is a happy little chap – fully hand stitched, soft sculpted, coloured and stuffed with love, lots of polyfill and weighing material for a little extra weight.

Monty is about 22cm tall standing (16cm in sitting position – please note, this little bear can only stand with support).

Monty has sparkly glass teddy bear eyes and a felted and painted nose. He is (loosely) 5-way jointed and is wearing hand knitted dungaree.

If you’d like to bring Monty home, please visit my shop on Saturday, 8 August 2020 at 3pm/15:00 UK time.
