I have managed to list most of the new hats on etsy. Three more to be added, but the internet is too painfully slow to continue right now. Those octopods are up though. Huzzah!

I am rather excited about the Raspberry Berrykin SSC hat :)

New Blythe hats in progress

There will be an etsy update in a few days, whenever I can get the internet here to co-operate, it is being a major pain in the bottom at the moment. Anywho... there will be some new hats, including sea snail inspired pearly silk tweed cabled hats, and fluffy mohair helmets. I'm also listing a couple of knitted octopods that have been floating around for a while. They deserve to see a bit more of the world.

Oh noes!

Flickr appears to be down :(

It is my Mum's birthday today. Dan and I bought her a rubyanndesigns locket from etsy. I think it went down well. She and Dad are in the process of going out for dinner. I cooked pasta for the kids here.

Tonight I will be knitting Blythe helmets. I'm slowly working my way through my epic stash, the chunkier yarns I never brought to Liverpool. I've been sharing my time between Ireland and Liverpool this Summer. I've lost all concept of pounds and euros at this point. I'll just stick to dollars, I understand dollars (or rather, how many hats I can trade them for...).

I want to start work on my quilt panel for the TIB quilt but I need my flickr to carry out that plan.

It was THE SCREENING tonite...

... for Andy's film. It was really good. As were most of the films there. And free wine and snacks aplenty (none of which left in anyone's handbag, ahem). Dan and I dressed up all smartish and a wonderful time was had by all.

Andy is graduating tomorrow, we at teacupfaery central wish him an awesome day.

I've been sewing more blythe bloomers tonite. But I've run out of white thread. Oh no! They should be ready tomorrow night though.

I'm intending to get an early (for me) night tonight so I can read more of Clive Barker's 'Damnation Game'. I still haven't finished the blooming SSC reroot, though I have fixed Mallory's eyemech and hair issues, with loads of help from Dan. Her hair is now brushable and lovely. She's currently balanced in a pint glass as her little licca legs don't fit on a stand.

Night night interwebs.

Today's Sewing Updates

Robot Love Bloomers. These are very transient things. They've sold already. Eeep!

Moonflower Blythe Hat

Sunny Birds SSC Rompers and Hat

Cupcake Rompers and Hat

Buttercream Dress and Hat set

A reasonably productive few days, especially if you take into account my new "Lost" addiction. Dan bought the first season box set in a charity shop in Galway. I grumbled at first, but now I'm hooked. Dear God, I love this show. I really do. Especially Sawyer. And Locke....

Right, off to watch more "Lost" and sew more bloomers.

Rompers and Filmstars

Its been a verrrry busy week here at teacupfaery central. I have spent most of it working out how to make tiny rompers for the Strawberry Shortcake dolls. A few new updates added to my etsy shop. More rompers to come very soon, as soon as I get around to finishing them.

I am very excited to be featured in the "This is Blythe" Fan Spotlight this month. Read my interview here...

I have also been lucky enough to have my photo of a skull in Liverpool World Museum published in the new Schmap! Liverpool guiode. Squeee!

On Sunday I got to be an extra in a short film written by my friend Andy. "Its a Pleasure" will be screening in Liverpool on July 20th (I think). I can't wait to see it. Spent the whole day in the Brian Epstein house in Anfield in a corset in the baking heat. Quite exhausting this film making malarky. It took SEVEN make-up removing pads to get the foundation off my face. Anyway... pictures of that incident to be found here...

It truely has been a hectic week. I need to fill in my student loan forms now. Then more romper sewings.

Etsy Updates!

Handknit helmets just added. Two for Strawberry Shortcake and one for Blythe.

I have lots more projects planned for the next few days. Just needing to catch up after my trip. Still needing to bombard flickr with my adventure snaps.

Welcome to the circus

I has blog! I have just returned from Ireland and have a trillion things to do today, parcels to be posted, sewings to be sewn, hair to be rooted.

This will be a place to share updates for my etsy shop, works in progress and any other dolly news. I can also be found lurking on flickr and etsy. We are getting technical. Oh yer.
