It is Grandma's week this week ...

...... and a very special fairy doll xx

Please meet Queenie, she is my grandma's sewing box fairy..... the material for her dress I mentioned in a previous blog was an old cushion I had seen in her house forever, the rest of the trinkets are from her lovely old button box, a button, press stud or 2, crocheted collar and flower, hook and eye earrings, and last but non least a bobbin hat. Her necklace reminds me of a picture I have of my Mum with teddy bear xxxx

A lovely large press stud, these were on one of those cards            A reminder of a picture I have of my Mum, Nanny's
so gorgeous very 1950's xx                                                                                  daughter, and a stylish bobbin hat xx

Hook and eye earrings, again on a lovely old card xxx                        ........ another picture of Queenie with a yellow posy  xxx

Nanny's old sewing machine which is in the studio xxx                    ....and this is a picture of a pocket fairy I made for the Chief
                                                                                                                                           stuffer my sister, to keep her safe on the front line working
                                                                                                                                           in a supermarket locally, she is tucked into her pocket xxx

                                                                                                                         lots of love
                                                                                                                       Chris  xxxxx

All beautiful Chris. I think you should make more pocket fairies. I think people would love to buy them in these uncertain times. Also good for children starting school - a bit like a worry doll. I for one would buy one. Take care - Miriam x

I absolutely adore Queenie, what lovely things to use from Grandma’s sewing box. I love the little pocket fairy also, very precious and will hold memories of this very strange time. Love your site x

I have cards of those old press studs (poppers) and hooks and eyes that belonged to my Mum. Also lace collars and old lace ribbon.
