It's been too long!

Here are some mittens I made for a lovely shop called Cakewalk in Ilkley.

I can't believe I've taken so long to get back to this blog. Facebook seems easier somehow, But here are some new people to add. This is my fourth pirate and third gypsy girl. Ok I guess there must be something strange going on here - empty nest syndrome?

Ha ha me hearties!

Pirate ahoy!

Phew! After much fiddling about but lots of fun too here's a pirate to scare those little mermaids out of their scales! I'm very pleased with the dreadlocks which took a few gos to get right, and the flared coat

Three gauguin mermaids

These are the best I've done so far. I'm still struggling with the mouths though. I'm wondering if I'd do better embroidering the faces before I stuff the head. Now I'm working on a scarey pirate with stripey legs. Sort of based on Jack Sparrow so I'm looking forward to doing the hair.

new faces

I've given the dark mermaid a new face based on the Gauguin girl.
My blonde lady has a new mouth - I think I'll adjust the eyes too

Gauguin girl

I'm very pleased with my new mermaid based on Gauguin's Tahitan ladies

Close up

I'm not sure whether I should sew the scarf so it drapes more modestly.
