Owl be back!

I've been absent from the blog for too long! I've got a really good excuse ... I'm busy :D Busy is a good thing. I have a custom doll to make and some Christmas dolls underway for the shop. I've been making a few fairy portraits, doing some Etsy trades and just took on a new job teaching at Erina Scrapbook Store. I've been to Queensland for another demonstration, and had a huge family day out at Luna Park. The kids are now back at school, so I have a tad more time on my hands. I intend to use that time wisely and knock a few things off my enormous 'to do' list.

The most exciting new challenge, though, has been crochet. I started about 6 months ago, and now I am writing a crochet pattern book for Milford, along with my mother & sister. Here's a little sneaky peek at one of the projects that will be in the book ... a gorgeous little sleepy/wakey owl toy. This is my first prototype, and I've tweaked it a little, but I love it. I'll blog when the book is available ... most likely wherever you can buy Milford Crochet threads :)
