My Week ::

Some free motion sewing - white thread on black!
#whitewineglass #notreally

 {actually a sort of halloween thing going on here ..}

This double string necklace has been in my head for ages!
Love these colours together.

I hadn't set out to try and collect this set of vintage Pyrex,
just came across them in the op shop over the last couple of weeks!

I had been using a phone case for my iphone,
but now have a custom made granny square case 
made (and fabric designed by) Cam!

I haven't had much luck finding vintage buttons at
 the op shops recently, so bought some on Etsy!

Love vintage buttons - they can be used 
as earrings on the dolls, or even brooches etc.

This is a little bit of free motion sewing that our daughter did as part 
of her science project recently. She was showing the different layers of a cross
section of an eco friendly water filter she designed. She also used some of my 
black tutu netting for another part of the filter!

I hadn't made any maori dolls for a long long time.

So have put this girl in the shop, and will add another one soon too!

And lastly, I have eventually ordered a huge piece of 
merino wool felt for the dolls hair - just black at the moment.
As I'm making quite a lot of the Frida dolls. 
It makes sense, as there will hopefully be less off cuts etc.
Just took me a while to commit to such a large amount!

Hope you are have had a good week,
we have school holidays for the next 2 weeks.
This term has gone so quickly!xxJ

Love seeing the results of your (and your daughters!) free motion sewing Jennie. Given I have trouble sewing straight with a sewing machine I have a lot of respect that you can have the control and skill to draw with it!
