The first was the dreaded vertigo – which – fingers crossed, for the most part is better.
I have been seeing the osteopath, and she has really helped however the process of recovering from the vertigo gave me a very uncomfortable back – so I could only be in the studio for short bursts of time!
The other reason is that I was making “art dolls” as Christmas presents and for the PIF exchange and I did not want to post pictures until I was sure that all of those dolls were in their new homes!
They did prove to be slightly more time consuming than I first thought – although they were not really very complicated – just fiddly. The hardest part was turning the doll right side out.
However – they were a joy to make!
I will post more pictures over the next couple of days – as they are not all in the “group photo”
Here are links to two more fun tutorials on art-e-zine;- for making this type of doll which caught my eye when I was first thinking about making “fairies” for my friends Christmas Trees.
One of my resolutions this year is to try and stay on top of “paperwork”. I seem to have half a Brazilian Rain forest of papers and “stuff” to sort out. (I think I say that every year) So no studio time for me until I have made some inroads into my paper mountain.
So I wish you all a wonderful 2008, thank you all for visiting my blog and all your comments and e-mails.
