Namiste Karen

Sometimes I pretend to be normal....
but it gets boring, so I go back to
being me.

Namiste Karen xx
On Thursday night I attended my last Body Balance night at the gym. Unfortunately the class will no longer be running and after years of going, it was a bit sad to see it come to an end. I take this opportunity to say 'thank you' to Karen, our darling instructor (the shortest in the photo). Karen is a little power house of a woman who never minded as she stretched our bodies passed points we thought we possibly could. 

You are a beautiful soul Karen and I will remember that 'breath is our constant companion'. 
 This week I was commissioned to make doll clothes for a little girl and it kept me well and truly busy. I do not have the doll to show you but she is a Cabbage patch kid and is smaller than the usual sized Cabbage patch dolls that were around in our era. They are about a head shorter than the normal sized dolls. Here I have made a little dress with a ribbon tie and butterfly button. 

                                   On the back the bow tie. 
 Little purple pants..... I've just realized that the ribbon on the pants also has a butterfly pattern on it. 
 A pretty skirt.... 
 A cute summer dress with ribbon ties on the shoulders. 

 Oh yes...there is the knitting happening too. This is not knitting for the doll but for a baby boy. I will show you this project when I have finished it. 
 Out in the garden, tucked away in the 'hot house' I am happily watching my tomatoes growing. Pretty awesome that they're growing in the winter.
I am going to leave you here as shortly I will be going for a drive with hubby to our nearest Bunnings store ( almost an hour away). I am hoping to find a lovely garden arch for the back yard. A chilly morning it is, but I'm thinking it's a nice day for a drive....probably unfortunate for my hubby...he will be stuck in the car with me all that time. lol What tricks will I play on him today? I have almost a whole hour in  the car to torture him. lol.

Have a beautiful day my friends. Shift any problems aside and make today all about you.
Ciao, Anita.

Good luck with your Bunnings shopping.
I laughed when I saw all the doll clothes because i have been doing lots of that too whilst our grandchildren have been here. Love your creations.
I am very impressed to see your tomatoes growing.

So.....did you get to your destination to get your arch...or did hubby take a deto. =) Those tomatoes look great. I am afraid I can't even think of planting tomatoes just yet. Love those cabbage patch doll outfits. They are adorable. Have a great week, Anita.

ciao anita, quanti bei vestitini da bambola che hai creato, sono così piccoli che credo sia piu' complicato che farne per i grandi
un caro saluto

oh pretty clothes, well done! Enjoy Bunnings... I need to get in there soon to buy some herbs. Well done with your tomato plant! A greenhouse is on my list of "wants" or should it be "needs"??? :) xx

I love that gorgeous colourful fabric! The clothes are cute! Everyone here is harvesting their tomatoes now. Russell wanted to get a plant but we weren't able to until it was too late to bother.

Hi Anita, I love your verse at the beginning ... very true !!! Your dolls clothes are just gorgeous .. I love the way you have embellished them with ribbons & bows. Some lucky little girl to get to play with them. Have a great week Anita :-)
