I was busy working in my room when there was this huge noise. I rushed to the window to investigate and found a helicopter at the bottom of the garden! We live out in the sticks and if you need to get to the hospital quickly the only way is by air ambulance. It was all very exciting for us but I hope the person they took away will be alright.

As they have featured Inches in the latest Quilting Arts Mag. I thought I would post my small collection. It is very quiet on the net at the moment. I guess you are all enjoying the sun ( in England) I prefer to stay in and admire it from the window and then go out when it is cooler.

My First Art Doll
I have just redone my first doll. She was not properly stuffed and was very floppy. I have also wired her head. She is made from calico which I have painted. Her hair is sheeps wool. She has pipe cleaners in her hands and arms which means they can be bent into different positions. Her hands are a bit untidy and one day I may re do them too. Her dress is made from cheese cloth which I have stiched Tyvek, beads and sequins. Her head dress was free machine embroidery with felt leaves. Her shoes are also made of felt which have been covered in various odds and ends including Angelina and a bit of netting from a lemon bag. Her wings are made from two layers of organza which have been machined together.
