Snow Storm

And my first snow angel! I had to try a couple of times- the other ones all ended up looking like the devil.

Baby Love

I was commissioned to make this baby blanket this week, and finished it up this afternoon. I love how playful the design is, it was really a joy to create!

I made some business cards and labels for the dolls that I sell in shops. I printed them with cut-out rubber stamps and India Ink.

Do you see the special secret in the big snail?

Penny Dress

I made this dress the other night out of some material that I bought when I was sixteen and brought with me to Canada because I had always loved it!

It is called the Penny Dress because I was having trouble making the bodice fit properly at the bust, so I tried tying a penny (like when you make tie-dyed fabric) in the centre of the bodice and it worked amazingly!

I drafted the pattern myself and made the collar from an old napkin and some incredible lace from the 1930s that I also bought in Australia.

It snowed yesterday and the mountain is sporting a fine white blanket!
