Roll on

My show has been put off until June which is such a huge relief. The date planned for March was going to coincide with house settlement date and painting and floorboard polishing and moving stuff and it was all beginning to frazzle me a little. I am pleased that there are another four months now because I want to make a bunch of toys which I hope to hang in the windows.
I love mail day! Thank you Heidi for a big fat package full of wool felt. You made my Friday which was otherwise long and tiresome. Here’s a photo taken in the near dark of Mum’s kitchen. This is a lovely house but as far as natural light goes it rates a big 0.

As the first submission to February’s A Month of Softies arrived in my inbox yesterday I was still sewing cat clothes and vaguely thinking about whether I would do an Alice doll, a white rabbit or a Mock Turtle. Perhaps I will try all three. Onwards, ever onwards!

  1. glad you like the felt, I know you’ll make beautiful things!

  2. oh! your blog is so darn cute!! SO VERY CUTE! I love it all!

  3. Felt! Say….is this wool felt? As in, felt that is thicker than the rather shabby felt I get in my craft store? If so, do you know where Heidi found it? I’m having a heck of a time finding good-quality wool here in Portland Oregon!

    Yikes,I haven’t even decided what to make for February’s Softie and you ALREADY received a submission!

  5. I’m hoping (!) to be able to make several characters. I’m almost through Alice. I would like to make a large wall hanging – with pockets for the characters and several editions of AinW. Then little ones (and not so small!) can pull out each character as they reach the story scene. The hanging can be folded away when not in use.

  6. ooh ooh ooh, felt….i love felt…and i can only find crappy felt…jealous.
    i cant wait to see your alice in wonderland softie

  7. There’s felt that isn’t crappy?…and please forgive my ignorance here, because I’m new to this site…but what’s a “softie?” I don’t generally think of sticking pins into them either–which leads me to believe I may not be correct in my assumption of what it is.

  8. Are you going to sell your Alice softies? I get first dibs!

  9. That is such a great idea Sandra. I’m planning on making a few characters as well. I have finished the one of the gardener cardmen.
