I have been playing and learning and then tweaking. Just a little bit. Well actually quite a bit! A very steep learning curve. What have I been doing? Remember this post “A little bit of this..” when I hinted at a project I was starting? The sketch has gathered momentum and collected fabric, ribbon, and yarn on its way. The scissors have snipped and the machine has whizzed to produce….

Her face smiles and her plaits wriggle out of her cap. It needs a little bit of lace and perhaps some different eyes….
With ribbons in her hair and around her collar, a satin tie on her broidery anglais pinny and a little secret behind…
