Follow your heart
but take your brain.
In one breath I tell you how excited I am...it has rained a little today, in my next breath I tell you because it rained only a little, that it will be a hot humid day. Am I happy or sad? 🙋😁
For now I will chose happy. Such a busy and constructive week I had and an extra day at work, I wonder where the week has gone? To top a
busy week off, I must say, I did go to our Ag. Society meeting which always leaves me in stitches. One funny comment from one of our darling members...and the whole meeting went to pieces. They're a crazy bunch of loves.
What have I been making?
Since my last market sales were a 'flop', and etched firmly in my mind, the comment "it is too hot for your doll to wear a poncho".....
I decided to 'sew' some dolls clothes. Maybe they won't be too hot for a doll to wear. I don't have any patterns but I am making simple cut, easy for children to use kind of clothing. The girls are always wanting woolly hats as part of their accessories for the dolls, so I'm happy about that. I love crocheting them. Here is lovely Pina modelling the pretty and bright outfit I have made.
Yellow hat, and yellow floral print dress and pink skirt and hat set. The pink set is crochet...I have to admit. I'm owning up.....

and the woolly hat.

I managed to slide in a bit of stitching as well. This will be part of a cushion I am working on at the moment. I have cut random sized lengths of material in tones of mauve and purple prints and will stitch them together. I thought it would be cute to have one length stitched. For my Italian friends the word I am stitching will say Goodnight. My english speaking friends could see what that word was going to be. 💟
With much laughter I introduce our new friends to the neighbourhood. A family of magpies. At this time of year the young birds are now flying around with their parents, looking for food and screaming out to their parents to find more food.
then come more....
We have been throwing meat out for them and they return. The magpie are known for swooping at people but this is when the chicks are still in the nest. They seem to calm down after that, which is understandable.
See all these tea towels? I could not sell one of them at the markets...not one. However, the next day over the internet I sold them all. Very happy.
This my friends is the trauma we suffer every time we go to water the back yard. It was my husbands turn to suffer the beast. lol It is the sprinkler at the end of the hose and Milo must have it.
Even trying to roll the hose in is a pain. Right to the very last. I think if my husband had any hair on his head...he would've tried to pull it out. Lol...but he doesn't have any. lol
Thank you all for stopping by and sharing my photos and stories with me. I now go to suffer the ironing before it gets really hot here. A beautiful Sunday to you all.
