Lots to do - Ribbons and Lace

The Lots to do challenge has grown, Alison is joining the team. Pop over to Alison's blog and see just how talanted she is some of the very best decoupage to be seen in my opinion, a great addition to the team.

Time for a new challenge as well this week its all Ribbons and Lace. Hilda's having a laugh thought I scratching my head and wondering what the heck to do. A little blog hop later and on Nan's blog found a marval of a little dress, Nan had used loops of ribbon to make the skirt so am hoping she will not mind that I have used her idea. You may remember a couple of peg dolls a week or so back from a swap that had ceased. Well turns out Carol was playing but had not told me so the swap is back on! A third peg doll was needed and here she is. Looped ribbon stitched to knicker elastic, lace for the bodice and a narrower lace over the join.    Pipecleaner arms with lace sleeves and embroidery thread coiled on the back of the head for hair.

I'm sure you can come up with something heaps better with ribbon and lace and am looking forward to seeing your results so don't forgot to pop over to Lots to do and leave a link back to your blog or photobucket.
