Some earrings and a fairy doll.......

Today these gorgeous earrings arrived for me in the mail. The lovely Kimberley who writes the blog Special K, had a giveaway and I won a pair of her earrings.......lucky me hey! I love receiving mail and am hoping to be receiving some lovely LARGE parcels next week from my kind and generous brothers for my birthday. Well a girl can dream I suppose...............

I couldn't resist posting a picture of the fairy doll that I am making Talia for her birthday, she just needs some fairy wings and she is all done! I also have to knit a baby fairy, I've got plenty of time though as T's birthday isn't until October. I am using the pattern from Claire Garlands book Dream Toys, which has got some great stuff in there. I also love the unicorn, but am not going to even attempt that, well not yet anyway...

Your knitted babe is beautiful, I just love those dolls and have made way too many. I've just finished the horse and will have it on my blog soon. Your daughter is going to love her and the baby fairy.

I must agree with the others, you make the nicest dolls. I love the felted ones as well. I always look at things like this with such jealousy as I can´t do it!!!!!! Your daughter will treasure this for ever I´m sure.

Hey there: I found your site through the daisy chain on "dogdaisychains." It is nice that she puts us all in a bouquet! My friend, who lives in Hawaii, is originally from New Zealand and blogs. You might like her site, too. http://www.justlilla.blogspot.com/.

oh i *love* those lips on your wee doll!!! she is a real cutie X

Your fairy is called Tangle Saturnwand
She is a trouble maker.
She lives at the bottom of tangled gardens and in hedgerows.
She is only seen when the seer holds a four-leafed clover.
She wears tangled dresses of multicoloured petals. She has delicate pale pink wings like a cicada.
