Work in Progress....Art Doll Fairy continues....

I think she may well end up wearing this headdress....rather elegant don't you think? Quite alot to do before I get to that stage though, but I thought I would share. I should go remove the pins from her face now, it looks a bit uncomfy :)

Love my sewing machines,truly,....each one has a special place in my heart,it's own certain strengths and weaknesses....I have an old,old metal Singer (electric,so not antique for any of you who are interested) which can no longer wind it's own bobbins and is SO HEAVY-but it will sew through anything from paper to vilene and runs smoothly with a perfect stitch, even threaded with sparkly Indian embroidery threads that no other machine can stitch further then 2cm without snarling and snapping-what a hero,worth keeping around just for that.I have a friendly,cheap modern machine which is reserved for experimental projects that might damage a more delicate motor-this one could not sound any worse that it does already,but it rattles through all kinds of weird stuff.
I ADORE my overlocker (serger, I think,for U.S. visitors) for it's efficiency and speed,though I must confess I am STILL getting to know it after 7 years and still have to keep the manual handy at times!
My pride and joy is a high-range computerised Brother ( scary £££££s but worth every bit)-it offers SO much,I never cease to be amazed at it's skills .... if only it made tea as well and my life would be complete :)
The only issue I suffer from time to time is that the more a machine can do,the more fussy it is that you do it RIGHT -fine if you are prepared (not really my style!)and know what your project needs and have plenty of time for fine adjustments, but for me,when the muse strikes,I tend to work fast,instinctively and with a vast range of fabrics and threads. It hates me when I do that :( It spits at metallics.... Coughs at fluffy fabrics.... and today it growled to a complete halt and stated on-screen 'safety mechanism activated' Did I know it could say that? Erm, no. The good thing about that function is that it stops you from messing up the machine by sewing when it might hurt it...told you it was clever didn't I? Not to be outsmarted, I fiddled,cleaned,faffed and generally overhauled the situation until things ran smoothly again....then I opened the window and let out the colourful vocabulary which accompanied this delay. We are now friends again....and my stitching does NOT make a grinding sound and look like this photo any more,which is GOOD news...although my inspiration has evaporated and I have nothing else to show you until tomorrow.....

Mini Fabric Album

OOh scrummy! I'm so delighted to be sharing this darling little album with you!
This album was created using fabrics and papers with stitchery embellishments. The style is very much grunge/shabby chic,with layers of yummy fabrics and papers,raw and torn edges and uncut threads-do not assume from this design style that it is loosely stitched however, it is firmly finished,and whilst designed to fray,the edges have been finished to prevent too much unravelling-it is very much designed to be handled! This is such a special piece of textile art.
This is a miniature size version of my fabric albums. It's so cute I almost didn;t part with it, so I hope it finds a loving home!There are still ten pages, not including the front cover entitled 'IMPULSE' and back cover embellished with 'FOREVER' with fabric and stitchery.
Book is filled with all manner of stitch and fabrics,inspirational/mantra style words and a couple pages have tiny pockets for some of my handmade tags .
I have included lots of photos so the page may take a moment or two to load but is well worth it! Album measures ROUGHLY 3" square and approx just less than 2" or so thick
Currently available for sale HERE!!!
