A well spent day
Brings a happy sleep.

Having completely left 2014 behind me, I’m now on a
mission to get a head start on my projects before I get
bogged down.....like last year! As I struggled through
2014,on many levels, I kept thinking to myself ‘why
didn’t you start this months ago’? I believe the only
thing I managed to get right was to start my Christmas
shopping and gift making in July. Having said that, I
have decided one of my busiest times through the year
is always through winter. Everyone is after mittens,
scarves and head bands and I’m usually flat out trying
to fill orders. So you know what?..........I’ve started already
with head bands.
How groovy are these?
One of my friends from gym gave me her cloth doll and
asked if I could give her a make over ie new outfit, new
hair. I wish I had taken a photo of what she looked like
to start with. Little dolly now has new pants, shoes,
petticoat, dress and hair. It was quite a job to remove
the old hair which was hot glue gunned on to her
head!!! Eekkk! I’m still going to add a bit of bling to
the bodice and maybe a beaded bracelet, or if I feel like
being saucy.....perhaps an anklet.
She’s so cute.
As we are in our summer and the days are pretty hot, I make my way out to the sewing shed in the mornings before it gets unbearable in there. I was wondering what to do with a lovely piece of fabric someone had given me a while back. I came up with a great idea.........a new skirt. I found a basic skirt pattern and added a small 3 inch ruffle to the bottom. Elastic waist....of course. Lol
It feels so nice on.
I plan to have a great week ahead.....Heather’s birthday is on Tuesday so I’m taking her out to morning tea out of kindness and revenge. Lol Yesterday Heather came over and allied with my boys.....lol.......all against me they were, with Heather at the helm. I have a plan for that rat bag. Lol
You guys have a super duper week ahead, do whatever it is that makes you happy, create to your hearts content. I plan to do the same.
