I think this is our biggest move yet... somehow in the last 3 years we have collected a LOT of stuff! Right now I am sitting in a corrugated forest surrounded by more tall towers of boxes. My craftroom is slowly being packed away but not as quickly as the rest of the house... I do need to keep my sanity after all!
Yesterday, Claire wanted to make a doll. She handed me a little drawing and some fabric and yarn that she "found" in my craftroom... I sewed and she helped stuff and even drew the face herself... and in one afternoon Claire had a new friend :o)
While I was packing a few of the trinkets away, I found a handful of acorn caps that Claire had collected in Autumn. I have some little needle-felted acorns from Lisa of Lil Fish Studios, and a few nylon and yarn acorns from Recycle Micol. I have wanted to make my own version of fabric acorns for a while to add to my collection. Thank you my friends for inspiring me!
My husband went to Japan recently and returned home with a Komaneko doll! She is the main character from a very sweet Japanese stop animation film. It is my absolute favourite because she is very crafty!!! However she didn't come with her handmade dolls so I re-created the girl doll upon Claire's request :o)
Expect to see more quick little projects during our move while I struggle to keep my sanity! Read more about our move here.
Here is the first part of Komaneko. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
