  10. Hello,
    I just came over here from Magie's blog, Teacups and Bunting. The little doll that you made for her is darling. I love handmade dolls, and have a few of my own. I was looking at the little bunnies and ginger bread men on your side bar. You are so talented. Me and my daughters also have a blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you. Your blog is very pretty, and so cheerful to me. I hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day.

  15. Were you channelling Kate Bush at the time! These are lovely - are they for the Christmas Tree? I have seen patterns for felt skates but yours are great - do they fit? Ho ho
