Heeeeeere's Mabel!


Isn't she sweet? :o) Here's my progress so far. As you can see I nearly have a whole elephant now... then it's onto the foliage & flowers - it'll be good to get out of those blue/grey tones & add a splash of colour. The greens are going to pop on the fabric (which is Polstitches 'Stormy Skies' BTW). Her eye is looking a little spooky though without the backstitch!

I've escaped from the Wagon a bit recently & have been adding to my stash. I'm sorry but I just can't help that I'm addicted to hand dyed fabbies! I've ordered Silkweaver's limited edition linen 'Cupid's Cloud' and also Polstitches 'Heaven's Above'. I've been stalking the postman all week but still no fabbies have popped though the letterbox :o( There's no hope for me really, is there!

That is one cute elephant! The fabric is so nice. :D

It must be the season to escape the wagon, I have just been on a stash buying spree myself. Enjoy! :D
