Cheer up and hang on!

I seem to have escaped full-blown flu, but I have got most of the minor irritating symptoms. I got up yesterday morning and felt as if I'd grown old suddenly overnight. Looking for something to do that wouldn't need too much application and energy, I made this 'pin doll', to cheer myself up:

The 'body' part measures about 3 inches, so you need a good cup size to show it off to full effect!

It cheered me up sufficiently to make this pair of 'hangers on' to go with it:

You probably noticed, these still feature trellis stitch.

These pins are charming! Any spot they hung would be brightened. I can see them suspended on the end of spring where even a small tweak would make them dance.


Love all your textured stitching and these cute little art dolls
