I have been sick in bed all weekend with some very bad cold and fever so it was lovely to see all your blogs. In desperation I tried to book a ticket yesterday to Briancon, but was told by Eurostar not until the 1st of April. Anyway I made this mad creature a while ago and forgot to show you all with the fabrics that I bought with Linda and Danielle in London It is 1925 French ticking (not sure how you spell ticking)and the book to make the box I picked up in France last summer. It reminded me of the vocabulary one had to learn in school. The fabric was quite hard to sew with and the face is a bit sad, but I think it has a sought of "coco chanel" ness to it.
Beinn's teacher sent home a note asking if there was a parent that was any good at sewing and papier machie. I laughed out loud. She came and had lunch and I showed her all "OUR" work. So now she wants me to go and do a workshop with 7 year olds. I am planing on making mad animals. It will be fun to see what they all come up with. Enjoy the snow Rebeka and Jonie. Enjoy Jonie, Oolie! and get in touch with me Danielle.
Love to you all Joanna
