birthday card & bit more crochet

Have had this LOTV image coloured up for a while now but finally made it into a birthday card as it needs to get to Hong Kong by Thursday ('last minute' is my middle name I think :D). I just adore these images and have just ordered some of the new ones that have just come out even though I've not used most of the first batch yet! Well, they won't go off will they? . . and at £3.50 how could I resist?!

  • Stamps: 'little girls story time' - LOTV, sentiments are from a Woodware and Papermania set
  • Colouring: Copics
  • Paper: BG 'nook & pantry'
  • Tools: oval nesties, MS around the page border punch, SU word window punch
  • Others: pink adhesive pearls

    After my last crochet attempt with my moose which took a while I wanted to go back to doing something quick & simple. Now, I love the little Japanese Momiji dolls (I have a few) and my neice found me this free crochet pattern which reminded me of them, so I had to try!

    I adapted it a bit as I wanted a more accentuated head/body and managed to make the body all in one piece (the patteren has it as 2 seperate bits) which I am well chuffed with as I am complete novice :). Made use of some of my beading things for her hair accesory. It's about the same size as the dolls (3.5" tall) and I think they will look cute when I make a couple more and put them together. I'm going to adjust the hair pattern next time too as it's a bit too big for my liking. What do you think?

    Well, that's all from me until Monday I think. Have a lovely weekend and hope the forecasted UK storms aren't too bad your way.
