Friends....

This will be my last post for a little while as we are leaving for Skiathos in a couple of days. Before I go I want to say thank you to everyone who left such encouraging comments about my doll. I'm looking forward to starting on a new one when I get back from my holiday.
I also want to dedicate this little piece of work to all my fab friends out there who have been such a tremendous support to me these past few weeks.........you know who you are!!!
I started off by wet-felting, added more by hand needle-felting, then finished it off with flowers, stitching and beads.
It says....... 'A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words'.

Yassas!!

Hi Linda. I found your blog from Lynn at Her Creative Spirit. The items you created and sent to her were beautiful. And now that I've seen your blog I can see how creative you are.
I have my MIL living with us who has dementia so I understand how trying this can be and your in my thoughts.
