K.Mart Christmas Tree Gifts

They are so almost ready to go, Just have to finish sewing the limbs and the eyes on the elephants, and the gifts will be ready to go.
All 100 things for the K. Mart Christmas Tree, but before they go there, i will be doing Show and Tell at Spotlight at South Morang as this is where all the yarn and most of the fabrics i have bought this year have gone into the dolls and toys.
I can honestly say that i have enjoyed making them, and i wish you all A Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
I also want to thank Jodie Carleton for her beautiful patterns, The Lady From Greensborough, Gina Denholm for some lovely boy fabrics, the ladies from A.C.D.A. for the buttons and fabric and yarn throughout the year, and all you lovely bloggers out there who have given me encouragement to enable me to achieve my goal this year.

Sleep or not to Sleep

Tilli, She just loves to sleep in the climbing post
I am sitting on the floor doing faces when i look up, and there is Meg looking down on me from the pool/craft table.
What i have been doing today, well yesterday, last night until now, 6am, Is it too late to go to sleep now? I got up off the floor to have a stretch only to realise that the sun has risen, the birds are singing, and i am almost finished on the dolls faces, Do i finish them or try to get a couple of hours sleep? Well i thought about it, and decided to carry on. I will have some brekkie a shower and freshen up and continue, I still have buttons to put onto jumpers. After finishing the rest of the faces.
Although i can draw my own faces to save time, this time i am using a face stamp from Katkins Designs
The Stamp is called Beatrix.
I bought this from her earlier this year at the Stitches and Craft show, and asked her permission to use them on the dolls i was going to make this year for the K. Mart Christmas Tree, and she was happy for me to do so.
I have gone over it with Prisma Pens, done the whites of the eyes with gel pen from the newsagents and coloured the lips using prismacolour pencils
Christmas Trees, all they need to have done on them is some decoration, and they will be ready for the Christmas Party next month.
