It’s been a strange couple of days stitchingwise. Having been all enthusiastic over the stumpwork portraits, I suddenly find myself unwilling to begin another just yet and can’t figure out why but with fingers twitching to do something, yesterday I began making a little doll based on Salley Mavor’s Felt Wee Folk. I am only using her methods as a jumping-off point so my version will be bigger (and less professional) but embroidering the jacket yesterday kept me busy for a while and was relaxing to do. If I finish this little person and she looks half decent, I’ll post more photos.

I found these Crafter’s Commandments yesterday on the side bar of this blog during an internet trawl.


I had not come across these before and I have to admit to being particularly guilty of number 11! What about you?

    yes, have drawers full of bits of string, bits of odd shaped plastic, cardboard, thread cuttings, etc, etc,etc. Are you saying you’re not supposed to buy things just because they are a nice colour or they may come in usefull in the far distant future?
