Glimpses II

Do you remember last week I showed you these glimpses of some swaps I had sent to Dot in Australia? Well, this morning I had a lovely email from her telling me that my Dotee doll had arrived so now I can show you what I sent.

This is the Dotee doll that I made. The fabric for the body was made on the embellisher.

I also made Dot a small pouch on the embellisher and sent coals to Newcastle by lining it with aboriginal themed fabric!

Finally I sent Dot one of my Summer Garden ATCs. I am absolutely delighted that this very special lady is as pleased with our swap as am I ! :))

Lucky Dot!! I love what you are doing with your embellisher - I have two packs of new needles that have not even been used yet!!! I also have to try those lovely fibres you sent me. Fingers crossed I'll have time next week once my cushion orders are finished. You're inspiring me so much I could burst!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love this Dotti, she is just magic, lucky Dot. And your other pieces you sent are lovely, especially the summer garden ATC.
You have a wonderful sense of humour in your work!
I always have a smile on my face every time I read your blog, thank you !!

Love the dotee doll. If people are interested, would you like to host a dotee doll swap on MixedMediaATC_UK? Maybe in May? I would love to join in and I think there are a few other doll enthusiasts among us.

I love my Dotee doll! She is already hanging in pride of place in my home and the Garden ATC and pouch are gorgeous! Thanks so much for swapping with me.

I love your dotee doll. I made one but need to make them more often to really get the feeling of them.

Your Summer Garden ATC card is lovely. I would love it mounted and framed. The colors are soooo beautiful.

What is an embellisher?? Is that the name for the gadget you use for needle felting?
