As well as teaching workshops here, there and everywhere (Tollesbury, Letchworth and Peterborough in the past week) I'm also four weeks into my MA and all day Tuesday was spent at the University of Hertfordshire. We've finally started to move on from the "getting to know you" games and at last I feel I'm ready to get to grips with some research and possibly even make a start on some practical work. I'm quite determined not to lose sight of the fact that I'm doing this for fun... but it can still feel quite intense at times, so it has been a welcome relief to be stitching something frivolous in the odd free moments during the week...
At the beginning of the week there were wings... sparkly fairy wings.
Then there were some very sparkly fairy shoes, because all fairies should have twinkle toes.

Then finally this morning the whole lot was assembled...
and the result is a rather loud "Diva Doll" fairy.
as yet without a name (suggestions most welcome!)
The reason behind this frivolous fairy is that I've been teaching a two day "Diva Doll" workshop at Art and Stitch in Peterborough and I'm back there tomorrow where I hope there might be some bodies finished to attach to all these heads!
Watch this space...!
