|Queen Guinevere - From the BBC production of Merlin|
Season 5 of Merlin is almost half way over and so far my poor Queen Guinevere paper doll only has one gown! (the Velvet Burgundy). So although I know I still have to finish her coronation gown from Season 4, I'm jumping ahead again and giving my Queen Gwen doll a new dress. Next up for her will be the purple satin, but I liked the colour of this blue so decided to paint it first

While I was busy my husband took a (surprise) photo of me! (He also gave me the bowl of popcorn to snack on!) So I thought it might be fun to include a pic of me at work, (specs and all) on this chilly November day!
Also a bit of news! - I joined the Original Paper Doll Artist Guild about a week ago and today emailed a scan of a doll I made for their next magazine theme. I've just had an email back from Jenny at OPDAG to say she likes it!! So a big thank you to Gayle (who has been encouraging me for ages) and everyone else who kept suggesting I join the guild. (I won't be able to show you the doll on my blog but the theme is about Babies and Children.)
Since the clocks changed at the end of October I've been given a little window of opportunity again to visit my favourite swan family in the park every morning on my way to work. The swans have become very tame - especially the young ones. People must feed them so I think they associate us with yummy treats. I'm usually one of the first people to enter the park when the gates open at 7.30 am - as soon as the swans see me they come racing up to where I'm standing, the young ones cheeping away madly. Poor things - all I have with me is a camera at best, but perhaps they are also a bit sociable and like the company as well!
The trees still look very pretty with their autumn foliage. These photos aren't all that great as the light was not very good - soon it will be too dark for me to go in at all, but I'm making the most of it while I can.
