Ginx Woolly Linx Party December


You may have noticed, that apart from a lack of my own posts this month, I haven't made my usual attempt to visit and thank you for joining in the link party. Please be assured that I have visited all your blog posts, but illness has left me short of time this month. I even could not do the Christmas craft fair that I had spent so much time getting ready for, but there is another one next weekend, and I'm sure there will be more in the future.

So thank you all for joining in the party. In December I am expecting to see a lot more Christmassy post.

I love Carolyn of Flickensalat's snowstars and angels. So delicate and pretty.

I could not resist Linda of Linda's Crafty Corner's crochet mice and pumpkins. Especially reading that the mice had invaded a meeting. I have spent so much time knitting mice this month, so it was nice to see their crochet cousins.

Liz from Howling at the Moon, has made some lovely crochet baubles, in beautiful cool colours.

And finally Alexandra of Eye Love Knots reviews turkey crochet patterns. Who new that there were quite so many turkey patterns, and it is well-worth checking them out.

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

Mutant Farm Mice

Once again I have been busy making mutant mice. They are really fun to make, and although my husband keeps saying "why not just make some animals" I am quite enjoying keeping them essentially as mice, but with just a few features of other animals. 

I am getting ready for another craft fair next weekend, and although I am not sure these will appeal to anyone, I am having a nice time making them.

Still plenty of time to join in the Ginx Woolly Linx Party for November.

Audrey Hepburn - A Tiny Icon

I have an item in my Etsy shop called Tiny Icons, where I make tiny versions of icons of screen, or music. I was delighted to have one of my Marilyn Monroe dolls bought recently, and the buyer also wanted an Audrey Hepburn, which I got busy making. 

As you will see, I particularly like it if the icon has an iconic dress or outfit. It makes it a bit easier for me to make the icon recognisable. 

Who are your favourite icons? I would love some ideas of other dolls to make.

Still plenty of time to join in the Ginx Woolly Linx Party for November.
