it's pumpkin time again . . . .

i have been busy making pumpkins in the shop for the last couple of weeks


medium tall ones

squashy peach ones

tiny ones to wear

traditional shaped and coloured velvet ones

even blue ones

shiny silky velvet ones

small ones for pins

lovely woolen fabric ones for a change 

and a little blue one to finish

check out my facebook page 
for regular photos and updates
as i'm afraid my poor blog has become sorely neglected

Peg doll workshop at the Magpie's Nest

we had a children's craft day in the market where my little shop is located
 So i ran a Peg doll workshop.
Making boy friendly dolls seemed daunting, until i thought of a peg leg pirate :)

i think we ended up making more pirates than fairies :)

i may make up some little take away peg dolly sets,
most of my customers are holiday makers and with our unpredictable weather
take away craft kits seems a good idea!
