Terrific Tuesday

Improve every opportunity to wonder
and worship, as a sunflower welcomes the light.
- Henry David Thoreau.

Well it's a terrific Tuesday here at the homestead! My boys are occupied and happy, had a nice walk this morning, even though the weather is pretty drab.....I don't usually do walks (rather ride) but Cory and I took Max for a walk. I am so excited that I have been able to get some stitching and sewing done. I told you about the Russian doll...
Heather had made this little beauty and my tongue hung out of my mouth and I started to drool. Had to make her. I did do a few changes though....she will be going to live in the library and with that in mind, I thought perhaps only 1 ribbon on her head and went along without the lace. I have also used corduroy instead of felt for the cape and used up scraps to make the front of her dress. I you want to make her she is in the Handmade Vol 25, no.10. Very quick and easy to make. I love her.

Have been able to finish some stitching as well, I'm a fair bit behind on that. This is part of the quilt Bev and I are making.
We are making different subjects towards the quilt. We have rows of chooks, hearts, trees and the next row is angels. It keeps us both out of trouble. Now having done some stitching and sewing I have also knitted up that lovely ball of wool purchased a few days ago. It has turned into a beanie for my niece who is expecting her third child. The wool brand is Cuddles 4 Me and it is beautiful to knit with.

I'm off to bake now for the hungry hoard of boys roaming around my house right now. Nothing like homemade cake! See you next time. Kind regards, Anita.

Such a cute little doll! I am feeling the urge to get out the sewing machine and make some cute things, too.
