Joyeux Noel ......

This is little Tinkatink asleep on the couch...she was so cute with her little paws outstretched that I couldnt resist taking a photo. I did have a box of patchwork supplies on the couch which I had been sorting through. Tink has used it as a bed. Isnt it funny how cats are drawn to fabrics. If I leave anything lying around she and Phoebe will always lay or sit on the fabric. What a lovely surprise in todays mail... in fact two lovely surprises. The first package was from Sesga in the Wales who had sent me two of her gorgeous peg fairy dolls and a sweet pink kitty softie... soooo gorgeous and thank you so much Sesga, I LOVe them! The second package was from my friend Shirley in Western Australia who had made me this beautiful handfelted and stitched book. It is so beautiful Shirl and I love each and every colourful page.
I have been doing some stitching too. I made the two Klimt dolls below to send to friends for Christmas, one in a beautiful green fabric that reminds me of a Monet painting and the other in a lovely Kaffe Fassett turquoise fabric.




Just a short post this time.... busy with Christmas preparations and I still have some last minute Christmas shopping to do tomorrow before my visitors start arriving on Wednesday.
Wishing you and yours Peace and Joy for the festive season.

Jacky-I love your kittie's name-and what a cutie pie!

Great colors and work on the dolls. I have zero sewing skills and will have to stick to drawing/painting/collaging.

Happy New Year to you and yours!

XOXO,
Leslie

Thanks for finding me Jacky! I love your Klimt dolls! They are wonderful. I also love the photo of Tinkatink! I am sure that George would love to meet her. They would get along famously since he avoids the soft fabrics and sleeps directly on top of my beads in my plastic bead sorting boxes...Happy New Year! Camilla
