✨Hello my IG friends! ✨ I'm still up to my eyeballs in sewing mermaids. Thought I'd show you a quick progress shot- two finished, minus their shells, and one nearly there.
So the scoop behind the doll making is that a couple of weeks ago I contacted the organizer of a craft show that she hosts in her own home, and has done so for thirty years. I'd heard of it, but never been. On a bit of a whim, feeling like I just wasn't getting very far with getting my work out to new people, I phoned her and asked if I might be part of her show. She liked the sound of what I make, so I met with her a week and a half a ago. She loved my jewellery, and she also loved my mermaid dolls...two of which I'd brought....also on a whim! Long story short, she asked if I could make 15 of these hand sewn lovelies to have at the show! Talk about a ringing endorsement of one's work! So I'm having to do some serious time management in order to have these dolls and the jewellery I need finished in time for this show - called the Silk Threads Craft Show (which you can find on Facebook). Time to get back to it! 🙂✨

Quick break from stitching a doll together to show you these gorgeous mini skeins from @allisonbarnesyarn ...so pretty! I ordered these on the stellina base for some extra ✨sparkle✨😄These are her spring flowers colour ways, and I have a couple of skeins earmarked for mermaid hair! 😊

Back to stitching.....(you can check out my stories for the progress I'm making!)

✨I mean.✨ Just look at her in her subtle, matte loveliness! It is going to be SO hard to list this doll....if I get time! Reason being, I have 15 of my felt mermaids to make for a big craft show at the beginning of November. I'm using every bit of spare time I have to hand sew these babies, so you may find me a bit quiet on here, unless I squeeze in a few moments to stockpile some photos to share with you! 😂 You'll get progress shots of my mermaids, for sure, especially in my stories. Wish me luck! 😊 Now it's time to get back to stitching.....

Such cuties! This is the start of five of fifteen mermaid dolls I need to make for an upcoming craft fair. This nearly became a crafting disaster, too. I'd used what I *thought* was a water erasable fabric pen to mark out the faces. It wasn't. 😫Luckily, some gentle dabbing with a wet washcloth and some mild detergent removed the ink....whew! 😳There would have been some serious tears if I'd have had to redraw, recut, and restitch all five of these! I'm so glad that isn't the case...but I could so with a glass of wine after that....😄🍷 Have you ever averted any near craft disasters? Do tell me! .

This little darling was supposed to have been in my recent 🎃Halloween🎃 update, but I couldn't find her. Until yesterday. Buried under the mess on my desk. Deary, deary me.....🤦🏼‍♀️ Anyway, she will be in my shop in a short while. Don't you just love the sparkles in her dress?✨ Even little witches can use a little sparkle, I do think! 😄

In the meantime, I'm working on some lovely new necklaces...check out my stories for a peek! 🙂✨.

✨Whimsical Earrings!✨ Those of you who follow me will have seen these charms on my new progress keepers! 🙂 When these fun little charms arrived, I knew I'd have enough for progress keepers and earrings...the best of both worlds!

Which pair do you like best? I love the little mint sewing machines, but the purple umbrellas are really sweet, too 😊☂️ I'm fighting with pretty poor light today. The sky is completely obscured with smoke from fires both in our province and Washington state (check my stories to see what I mean). One more day like this, and then we may finally get some much needed rain! 🌧☔️💦 I aim to have these earrings and my progress keepers in my shop within a week 🙂 (have to get back into the swing of things with back to school!)

✨Halloween update this afternoon at 3:00 Pacific time!✨ I'm sorry I didn't post this earlier today. The boys have friends over this afternoon, and some tidying up was required around the house! 😄

Hope you're all enjoying a lovely Sunday afternoon! 😊💐 .
