Where Have I been.....making Marionettes!!!

Last year Autumn and I started to make Marionette's together. As with some projects I start I then move on to other crafts, so as per usual we were distracted by other things.

We had made quite a lot of the heads and some of the clothes and hands.
We are making 12 marionettes in this version and I am writing a story for them.
This is our Queen all finished and hanging from the mantle piece in the "Great Hall."

The children all love her and can't wait to see the others and then be able to play with them.
I am very pleased with her and have really enjoyed doing this project with Autumn.

Stay tuned for the next characters!!!!!

Blessings,
