Goodies from the postman

I got back from Kent on Monday to find lots of goodies from the postman, bless him. First to open were the Dotee Doll from the MixedMedia ATC swap. This Dotee isn't really for me it was sent to me by mistake but isn't she lovely. Its from Pat Reeth and I will be reluctantly sending her on her way to Kari tomorrow.
Such a self-satisfied grin and with cause, her beautiful beaded hear and tail make Maureen's Dotee feel I'm lucky to have her.

While Kari's dotee is a little red head with a dazzling beaded dress and tail. I love all the dotees if anyone has made one you'll know how addictive they are. I'm in the process of making an angel dotee for the U3a meeting on Friday. The members of the craft class wanted to make something small that could be hung on a Christmas tree. I've made a beaded bauble but thought a dotee angel wouldn't look out of place.

The private swap theme this month is 'nautical' and the sailing ship above was done by Cindy who has gone home to the States for a month, but not in a boat like this one.

Christine's nautical card is very clever. She has manipulated a photo she took, played around with it in then copied and painted it onto fabric.
I had seven atc's to show but blogger is refusing to download them so I will save them for tomorrow. I might also get to show you some of my Kent photos.

What a pity she wasn't for you Annette. She's really lovely.
