Sneaky peek revealed and film review!

I can now reveal the 'sneaky peek'; shown 1st Dec; in full, as it has arrived safely.  Tada! it's a mermaid,
which I made for the wonderfully talented and very amusing Donna aka Doings of Doone

I've also been busy making a Unicorn for a very poorly friend, the Unicorn had been promised for quite some time so I'm glad I finally got it done.
The mermaid is completely my own work - need to work on heads though as I think she has 'Hammy Hamster' cheeks - whereas the Unicorn is a pattern by Laurilee Taylor at The Magic Doll.

I went to see 'The Tourist' (Johnny Depp + Angelina Jolie) with a friend yesterday.  It's rubbish so if you're thinking of going, save your money; even if you love Johhny Depp!  It's supposed to be a romantic thriller but it's not thrilling and in parts tries for humour but it's not funny either.  It takes an awfully long time to get going and sooooo boring to begin with and even when it does get going there's not enough action or enough anything really.  Didn't care for Angelina Jolie in her role at all, if you like to look at dolls then she's fine, she just pouts and poses.
Edited to include: My friend who is a huge Johnny Depp fan didn't enjoy it either and we heard a few negative comments about how boring it was as we were leaving.

Hi Anne, sorry not been about for a while, havent had much time for anything recently. I hope you are keeping well?

I absolutely love your Mermaid and Unicorn, OMG you are soooo talented.

Thanks for the film review, I have passed this onto my eldest daughter Amy, her and her boyfriend were going to see it but now they aren't, I love Johnny Depp but not a big fan of Ms Jolie lol! Have a lovely weekend dear lady, keep making those wonderful creations big hugs Heidi x

Oh Anne, your are sooo clever!! Your Mermaid and your unicorn are brilliant! Makes me wonder what you're going to come up with next!!?!
Luckily our snow appears to be a one (or maybe two) day,wonder, and has all melted (except for the odd really frozen bits where someone built a monster snowman!) Haven't been doing much in blogging world lately as been a bit busy, hope to get a few things made this weekend. Did go and see Harry Potter though, (yes I'm a sad fan) I thought it was a bit slow, and they've missed so many good vital bits our from the book (past films too) I wonder how they are going to explain it all. To me it seems they are relying on the fact that most people have probably read the books! Have a good week end


Doone said...

What a great mermaid you have created for Doone. Looks like lots of gifts are going back and forth between Doone and some of her friends. And I love the pattern you created. No hammy hamster cheeks I can see. At least not on my screen.

You are so very talented. I love the unicorn. I am in total awe of your talent. Even using a pattern, it is one powerful piece and I can tell all the hard work that went into it. Love them both.
