Prizes, Hearts and Dolls

Lucky me ..... I won 4 prizes in the One World One Heart give away! Two have arrived already.... a gorgeous Oriental Arch from Marion Bockelman http://bockel24.blogspot.com/ - I love the colours and all the detail in this... and a very pretty little journal folder for me to put my own pictures in from Rein at http://stampingrika.blogspot.com/with an adorable ATC inside!

Thank you both - I love my gifts....and I still have two more to come!

One of my Australian friends, Keron Lee (who lives in Victoria) has set up a special site dedicated to helping people who are in need of love and support - in particular those who have been affected by the devastating bushfires recently. You can read more about it here and get involved if you wish to. I have made 2 dolls and 2 hearts which I will be posting to Keron tomorrow.

This doll is made from the pattern you can download from http://loveitforward.ning.com/

and this one I adapted from Dots famous Dottee Doll pattern. Normally I would stitch lots of beads on but as it may be given to a child it couldn't have too much embellishment.
Now I'm going back to my journaling - so I'm off to Kathryn's blog to be inspired!

Belated congratulations on your wins Linda! Sorry I have been out of contact.

Have been thinking of you and hoping your dad is settling in OK.

Love the gorgeous hearts you are sending and the dolls too (I smiled at the angel adaptation of a Dotee doll - it is gorgeous).

Am busily working away on my covers for our fabric book round robin. It is going to be a lot of fun!

Sending lots of love to you (lots of love).
