Easter .......

I hope you all have a wonderful Easter break, I know I am really looking forward to mine! I intend to spend some of my time sitting in my favourite chair (which as you can see below I often have share with one of my cats, Phoebe).... I want to do lots of stitching during the break. The weather has cooled down, so perfect stitching weather. This is a close up of some of the stitching on a Klimt doll I have worked on this week for a friend in the USA.... she has been waiting a while for her doll, but will be pleased to know she is on her way.
This is the finished doll. I have it on good advice that pink and orange are two of my friends favourite colours. As usual I have used a Kaffe Fassett fabric for this girl.... KF fabrics lend themselves so well to these art dolls I think.

I hope the Easter Bunny brings you much love and peace (and of course lots of yummy Easter Eggs).

Belated Happy Easter to you Jacky! I loved catching up with you and Lee. Your Klimt doll for your friend in the US is stunning and very vibrant. Loved seeing it close up last Sunday. You have such a way with fabric and color (and tiny stitching).

Loved the pic of your favorite chair with Miss Phoebe sitting on top (kitties do find the most comfy places to sit don't they?).

Hope you enjoyed the rest of your Easter.
