It's not always important
how close by or far away friends are,
more important is the feeling they give you !
Today arrived a little package from the US.
I was told it would be coming,
even knew a bit what was in it.
But to really hold it in your hands
is special !
Nancy made something for me because of her blogaversary
(a year ago ! yes : she started when she knew
who it would be for ...)
A real s l o w cloth piece
(just like we learned from Jude Hill, right Nancy ?)
a tiny woven pouch
and a sweet card.
Such a gift really warms the heart !
Thank you so much Nancy !!!
While I was busy working on items
we could take to the summer festival,
a hanging doll this time.
I was so busy doing other things, that I only had time
to look through the first two instructions
and glance at the pinterest board sometimes.
I didn't even have time for instruction number three
But, last Monday I took the "Embellisher"
and the stuff I had collected during the first week
and made a start.
My plan was, not to make a doll exactly like Sara's,
but : a mermaid.
(hmmmmm ... I discovered someone else ended up
with a mermaid as well, but I decided to stick with my original plan)
Front and back of the same lady
(I could work a bit differently because I had seen lesson one ánd two !)
One side of the body fixed with the embellisher
the other side sewn together.
The face is embroidered on the wool itself, and a tiny blue extra cap
to fasten the hair on.
For now, "swimming" in the garden
A sideview with the tangle of seaweed-like hair
It was another fun "Challenge" Sara !
