I wanna tell you a story ..........

:D

Once upon a time there was a little girl who never seemed to have the same as other people .........

:doh

...... she always had to "make do and mend", but she had a vivid imagination and she wasn't embarrassed to share her things with others. . . . . . . .

:P

Well, late last night :sleep: I had a visitor ....... 'twas a strange thought, but there she was, yes, she really was there ........

:daze:

I opened my eyelids and there she was ......... Miss Merino Fairy.

:clapclap:

Poor Miss Merino Fairy, nobody loves her, she is the poor relation, but she so desparately wanted to play that I decided to introduce her to you and all the other peg fairies ........

Please treat her kindly, I know she is very different to you all dear peg fairies, but please let her play with you, even if only for a very short time. ............

I give you .....


:cheers:

Miss Merino Fairy . . . . .

You mean you will let Miss Merino Fairy play too? Has this little being for once in her life been awarded something special - some points??

I know I'm just a tad late with this, but I had a go at a peg fairy last night. I promised to make one of the girls at work a topper for the little tree on her desk, so here she is, Julie the Peg Fairy:

(She is named Julie after her new owner).

Julie liked her so much she has asked me if I will do one to go on her tree at home.

Thanks for the great tutorial Maddy.
