bye bye birdie

A huge thank you to all who stopped by the shop the other day. Times are tough for all of us these days, so I really appreciate those who chose my creations for gifts or treats! Thank you.
I must say I am incredibly jealous of Hillary, who packed her bags and left for Hawaii to go live in a sunny yellow kitchen. She was my favorite birdie too, I will miss her.

I know it must sound odd for a thirty something old woman to be lamenting over the loss of her dolls, but I do. Particularly before a shop update; when I see them first thing in the morning they make me happy. My husband thinks I am so odd grinning at my dolls, cup of tea in hand.

Now I must start working on my x-mas gifts. I had planned to hand make all gifts this year, yeah right. Plus my daughter turns 1 this year, my Christmas baby. How time flies.

Today's update

I've been hoping to finish 8 dolls and birds for the update today but the other night I spilled coffee on three dolls so I will only have 5 listings today. I spilled coffee on my Mac's track pad and broke it a few months ago so really I should have learned my lesson. I have been sewing nonstop at every opportunity and am really tired, so I'm really looking forward to taking a break and getting ready for the holidays.

bird trio

To be honest, I've never been too fond of birds before I met my husband 8 years ago (I prefer fluffy little things like cats. love them). When I was 10 years old, I was literally attacked by a mother bird when I unwittingly ventured too close to her nest. Then we moved to the area we live now and we are lucky enough to live a block away from an estuary, filled with absolutely beautiful birds such as herons, pelicans and so many different species... the occasional ray and dog sharks. My little twos love them. My husband is a true bird lover and has converted me too. So these birds are dedicated to them and they will be in my shop update on the 12th. I hope to have one yarn hair doll and two or three Charlottes. Hopefully I can post a pic on Thursday.

hello - my first post

I have been wanting to start a blog for a couple of years now but wasn't confident that I could find the time with two young kids, managing a household and crafting in my spare time. So I am really looking forward to sharing a bit of my life with all of you and to give you shop updates too.

Thank you for stopping by; I am so looking forward to getting to know you!
