Inspiration strikes at 3am this morning.
Little Jumping Joan is born at 3.05am.
Here I am.
Well yes I know you all saw this yesterday, but it's really me. Little Jumping Joan, well a little cartoon machine embroidery version. I really do look awfully like this. All short and stout with a hat.
So I did some sketching, different poses, different shoes.
Then I found some terribly nice 1970's fabric, some vintage linen and black thread.
I sewed and I sewed. Then I had some tea, with sugar of course, it is 5.30am after all.
Then some one (I wonder who) reminded me it would be a good idea to feed her. So she got sketched too.
Of course I can't show you any more it's all hush hush and secret until I launch my new designs.
