A fairy is for life not just for Christmas ....

Have always loved making peg dolls ever since I made a Jean Greenhowe pedlar doll design from a Woman's Weekly magazine back in the 1960s!

These little fairies indulge my love of whimsy as well as my obsession with Liberty Tana Lawn cottons!  I find I can make a doll from a 6" charm patchwork square and usually buy the squares on ebay, although the mauve Tana lawn above has been in my sewing cupboard for many years since bought as a fat quarter at Liberty's sometime in the 1980s.

My little fairies, now listing on Folksy, are definitely good fairies.  Make a wish and all your dreams will come true.
