The nice thing about getting your birthday presents before, on and after your birthday is that it's just one big long gift receiving season! I like it even more when some of the presents are in fact, cash. It's nice to be able to choose something you've wanted for a long time, something a bit different that isn't just store bought.

I've long admired Jennie's beautiful dolls, so much personality and detailed work in each one. I was also keen to get my hands on one of her beautiful stitched neck-pieces.

I love the bright colours in this one. Despite it's large proportions it's light weight to wear.

If a neck piece isn't your thing, Jennie also does some amazing brooches, hand drawn with free motion stitching and also some are hand painted.You can see a little bit of her process here. Beautiful works of art!

Buy handmade!
