Hey it's me, Emily, Levineke's 13 year old daughter. Gosh, its been a while since I posted, hasn't it?
With only 4 days to go, we up to our necks with Christmas preparations, wrapping, sewing, baking, buying etc. and haven't had much time to post. So, while I have time, I'll show you our latest finished projects.This is a little Christmas fairy I made as a Kris Kringle present for my good friend Ingrid. I was very pleased with it, and so was she. Unfortunately I ran out of time towards the end, so the neck is less than perfect, but i still love her to bits. As of yet she has no name, I left that up to Ingrid.

These are our new family stocking, made from red felt and white crushed velvet by mum. Sorry the photos are crappy, it has been a very grey summer's day today, with thunderstorms and lots of much needed rain.
The letters are cross stitched on, with a leafy pattern embroidered around them. They look great hanging up over the fireplace.
Well I better go, there is a nice fairy cake with my name on it in the kitchen. If we don't post before then, have a safe and Happy Christmas

Emily

The doll is so cute, you are very talented. I'm always scared of making dolls with arms and legs, I always think I'm doing it wrong. So I stick with softies that are supposed to look slightly strange!!
