Little Men and Teapots!

I finally finished making the 'Little Man' (as I've been calling him for the last month).  It's for a friends exhibition.  He, my pal, has made a stop motion film and my little fella here is featuring in it!  YAY!  Hopefully I'll be able to show you the video/film after it's been shown at the gallery.  I'm very much looking forward to the opening (which is on the 29th February at FACT in Liverpool).  Here he is:

I was VERY proud of his little feet.
He has no head, as you can see, but all is explained in the film.  It took me a lot longer than I thought it would to make.  His little shoes have laces on too!  It was a bit of a learning curve for me, having never made a suit or a shirt before, but I'm very pleased with the outcome.

I grabbed some great charity shop finds this week.  A new teapot (been a while since I've found a good one) and a vintage jug.  The teapot is a carousel teapot!  I love it!

New knitting needle storage!

The jug is perfect for my knitting needles (if they all fit in.  The picture is just a very small amount of them) and I love the design.  It's much prettier than what I keep them in at the moment.

I've ordered a tripod for my camera, should arrive any day now, so I can show you all the clothes alterations I've been doing lately.  It's very hard to show when you don't have anyone to take the photo for you, and I really dislike the photo in the mirror look that I usually have to do.

Just a quick yummy picture before I go for food.  TEA BAG BICCIES!!  I'm going to have a go at making these (a vegan version of course, dipped in dark chocolate) for my friends birthday party.  Such a cute idea isn't it!?
