Dish of the day: Pastasaurus!

Today's creation was inspired by last nights family reading of 'Megs Eggs' (as in Meg, Mog and Owl)... while the Stegasaurus cracked out of the giant egg, and Escher made sound effects (creak, crack), I busily drew and cut a pattern in my head....
He turned out rather well I think! So well that Escher has decided he has to keep him and call him Pasta (what else would one call ones dinosaur?). he's made out the left over fabric from Charlie's baby quilt.
Today he came everywhere with us. An older lady we were talking to asked Escher what sort of dinosaur he was, and to this he of course replied 'pastasaurus'.
So cute! :)

Holly Golightly

Meet Holly. She's the first doll I've ever made (I normally make animals and weird monsters)... I've been very excited about doing this since I first saw my beautiful friend Neen (Nettle & Brier)'s amazing dolls.

I had a wonderful time putting her together- choosing the fabrics and deciding what kind of face & hair she would have. Just making it up as I went along, like playing with those gorgeous paper dress up dolls.

As I did this, I daydreamed happily about what kind of life she might have, what her voice sounds like and the kind of person she is. I guess that's what dolls are all about!! I love it, and I can't wait to make more :)

She is up for sale here :)
