so i've been busily working on 2 very cute patterns for another softie book. it will be published in australia like the other 2. i know it is going to be a good one. the other softies books are super. this one is all about hand sewing and geared towards children. i have everything ready to ship off tomorrow. i really want to show pictures but i don't want to spoil the surprise.
other then that today i spent most of my time doing production sewing for jess brown. i got another bag full of dolls done. soon they will be dressed and off to adventure in the world.
the lighting isn't any good in my sewing room so i'll have to wait till morning to take pictures of the new spindle mushrooms. i heart them:) they are very noodle-y!

mushroom family

oh! how i love these guys. i tried something new to keep it interesting. i mixed in some new fabrics. scraps of course hemp, brown velvet, and foiled linen go nicely with the wool felt. i added 2 new shapes also. the tall spindly mushrooms in the back. i think i'm very close to having 27 different mushroom shapes. big happy family.

owls, cats, and spindle ponies.

i've spent the last couple of days sewing, sewing, sewing, and sewing a little more. i try to post a new batch of soft sculpture as soon as they get completed.
i'm so pleased with the colours of this batch. it always makes me smile when i see them all together.
there is more to come shortly. i have a bunch of mushrooms in the works and some sweet faced girls. i'll try to get them done while is still shining.
