I'm A Winner!

I was very lucky to be the winner of a lovely giveaway at Whisker Graphics last week.  It's been ages since I won a giveaway so I was very excited indeed.  This sweet doll named Fru Marseth was handmade with love by the lovely Emily Moss from Ravenhill.  Well she arrived safely in my post box yesterday and has now been secretly hidden away until Christmas, sneaky sneaky!  Thank you so much ladies for such a wonderful gift.

She has a lovely stitched heart on her bottom.  I like doing this as well.  It gives a toy a little bit of love to go out with.

I wonder if she would like to be friends with rabbit?  I will have to give it serious consideration. 

And speaking of Christmas... yes there has been some talk of this day lately on a couple of blogs.  Well you can never start too early with preparations can you?  This stocking I've made from felt is another project for the school sewing lessons.  I went out and bought all the felt at Spotlight yesterday.  Oh all right, I actually bought way more than just felt!  There might have been a few fat quarters too, and perhaps some more quilting pins, and some fibrefill, and the day before there could have been some other purchases at the same store.  Oh sometimes I am sooo bad!!  But who cares!!

There are a couple of dresses I wouldn't mind getting some fabric for as well.  I'd like to make one for myself too actually.  I have a fancy wedding to go to soon and I have no idea what to wear.  It will be a warm weather wedding so a pretty dress would be nice.  I'd love one of these vintage frocks, but would that be suitable?  I'm into floral fabrics at the moment.  There are so many pretty ones out there. 

I'm off to the fruit and veggie shop in a min.  Hope you are having a good day/evening today.  Love to you all!!

Congratulations on your new family member, Fru. She is beautiful. Oh and yes, I do think Fru and Rabbit would love to be friends. I have heard a few Christmas rumours popping up lately also. *Yikes* had better get a move on myself. Your little stocking is beautiful. I will be heading to spotlight myself possibly tomorrow, as I need to start gathering ideas and supplies for 2 x book week parade outfits, once the final choice has been made by my two. They currently have a short list, so we need to work on that now. lol. Have a wonderful day.

Congratulations, there is nothing better than a little surprise giveaway win! She does look so at home with bunny - they make a cheeky pair.
You wouldn't want to waste time with a trip to Spotlight for just one thing...unthinkable!

I think that dress would be perfect for your tiny body, maybe with a large hat à la Heudrey Hepburn?!
The stocking is beautiful!

Buy the dress!!! I love it. Be daring and wear it to the wedding. I have a lovely vintage dress too, but alas not enough sunshine hours in Taranaki last summer to wear it. And I'm not sure about wearing vintage to a 'mainstream' event either. But I think YOU should. Most definately.Be Audrey for a day...
