Eye Spy ... Something I want to try

Well that list seems endless as I am always amazed at other people's abilties and end up with lots of ideas for things that I would love to try. I was in Little Sparrow this week and picked up this flyer to make the gorgeous Waldorf dolls. I would so love to make Poppy one for Christmas but I just don't know if I have the time, but I think the classes are a really great idea to keep me motivated.
I have also seen some gorgeous circle quilts (this image from here) and was reading this tutorial. I don't think I will do a whole circle quilt just maybe add in a couple onto Poppy's one that I am planning.

Thanks to Kimino Reincarnate for her great theme for this week and I am hoping that Aussie Waffler can help us out with next week's theme. You can join in anytime, just add your link after you have posted below so we can all find you and it doesn't matter what day of the week that you do it.

How exciting to be first!

I love the Waldorf dolls too and never thought myself capable - how sad, especially since a dear friend of mine makes them and would be thrilled to teach me!

Do the classes! Sounds like fun. :o)

Love a new class! It's all about time though hey.

Oh, quilting! Now that's something I could add to my 'wanting to try' list - another thing that looks really time-intensive but would have a crack one day.

I think classes like that are a great idea. Indeed: It keeps you motivated. I would love to see what kind of doll you would be making.

The quilt is lovely too, by the way. And I really recognize the feeling of having too many things you want to do in your head. I guess that's something we all suffer from ;-)

I can't go past spending money and having set attendance dates to make me find the time to do something so sounds like a great idea. Thanks for the circles link too, circles having been kicking around my head for a little while now

You could always try giving it a whirl on your own if the time thing is a factor. I bought a really thorough kit and made a mermaid version. It took commitment but I was pretty chuffed with myself at the end!

4 months to finish a doll might be doable, a little bit done here and there. :)

that circle quilt is pretty, really neat pattern. def. would look nice added to a quilt in sections.

Do it Cindy - I go casually to the handwork cirlce that Shelley runs and it's always fun.
All my girls have a doll either made by Shelley or their aunt who did her class.

The dolls are great and I find classes can be a real motivation. Love the quilt too!

I would love to be able to make a Waldorf doll, they are so cute. Go on do it, do it, do it (no, no pressure, really) :)

Gina said...

Ooh, a class, that'd get you onto it for sure. Waldorf dolls look like a good challenge. Do it!

Sarah said...

The Waldorf doll is so sweet... my daughter made one for her daughter. It's baby-size and can wear my granddaughter's baby clothes! Her name is Butter Blossom (the doll, not my g-daughter :)

Stacey said...

They look so cute and cuddly!

Poppy and Mei said...
