where I ramble on about what's happening in my little world
and hopefully you have some enjoyment reading about it!

A face only a mother could love!

I just thought I'd share this with you, I'm quite pleased with him and was almost too scared to finish him in case I didnt get it right.... and I because I wanted to keep him too #, or maybe this is a case of 'a face only a mother can love?' haha
(# = he's a commission so is spoken for)
If he didnt have to have a jacket on (which took me 3 attempts!) Id probably love him even more, I find them so fiddly to stitch.... so if I ever have to make another 'Frankie' it will be Tranny-stein cos it'll definitely be wearing a simple & easy to sew dress! He's a bit more greenish than he looks in the pics, I know they say the camera never lies but he seriously looks jaundiced in these pics LMAO

He was made last week but due to lots of things happening at home to distract me, he didnt get finished as quick as I wanted.... I'm blaming that jacket!!! which I have just realised is missing the buttonholes Grrrr .... and a pocket... so he's still not finished!!!.... (definitely needed a dress)

I also forgot to mention my most recent new followers, so a belated but just as happy hello to:
Debs Minis - who makes wonderful minis , I was really taken with the latest creation of a steampunk bed.... in the same fabric as my gypsy's skirt LOL
Cia - who I cant find a blog for (but will edit later if it can be found)
Angela - whos blog is 'A trifle small' and has the most 'I want' gypsy wagon... ever!
Hannajaleijona - a lovely miniaturist who needlefelts minis amongst many other things
Marie - Le Petite Monde merveilleux de Marie although it is a French blog, a lot is translated into English so is easy to follow
Fiver - Mini Menagerie who makes the sweetest litle mini animals :o)
Shelly - again cant find a blog for .... yet!
& Victoria from Little Boxes who has been making some lovely bits of mini furniture and recently upholstered a chair in wait for it... the same fabric that Deb & I used as well!! great minds think alike .... such a lot of uses for a bit of cloth LOL
I shall attempt to not be quite so slack in remembering to welcome my regulars in the future xxx

and finally a farewell
to one of my first 'big' chooks, the ring leader and head of the flock passed away in my arms today :o( she had been a bit wobbly on her legs for a few days and so had a lovely cuddle this morning and just fell asleep in my arms. I was so glad I was with her as I'd have felt awful if I had just found her gone. I'm getting hardened over the years when I lose chooks, I think you have to be, so no sympathy please!!! am done with the tears (and I have no more tissues left!)

He turned out awesome Wendie! Your customer will certainly LOVE him!

Hehehe, I like your blog music!

Fiver said...

Ohhh noooooo, I didn't read far enough down. That's heart-breaking about your chicken, so sorry Wendie. I don't think anyone can ever be so "hardened" as to not feel the sadness of losing a beloved pet.
