Everything stops for Mama and the kids

Today while driving down the motorway there was a warning sign saying to slow down animals crossing. I drove a few miles and was expecting to see some sheep or cows or horse or a dog but suddenly all traffic stopped and this is what I saw. I couldn’t get a proper picture as another car was in front of me but just managed as they crossed before the traffic started moving. They looked so cute.

New visitor

Well lets see if this works! I have been trying all sorts of things to get my blog sorted out. I think it might be aApple related as when I tried from the desk top things worked. I have managed to delete my doll club blogs that were linked to my account as we don’t use it and we have moved to FB.

I have been able to post this video of this cute little fellow that has been visiting us lately. I am only hoping he won’t bring his whole family once he grows up๐Ÿ˜„.

Thought i would let you all know that i am not ignoring you. I am reading your very interesting blogs. Hope i can solve this problem. If you think you know how to just let me know how as i am totally at sea at the moment regarding this.

Not Forgotten!

Hello all, I certainly have not forgotten you all or fallen off the edge of the earth but life is such it happens. I have not been very creative of late however I managed to organise my colour pencils at last. I found this storage case in Amazon which can hold upto 73 pencils. At least now my inktense pencils will not rattle about in a box, which was so inconvenient. In one of the online classes the intstructor showed how she put a label so that she could at a glance tell which pencil was what colour. As you all know it is very difficult to tell what colour of green or red or blue the pencils are until you mix them with water. So she made a swatch of each pencil and stuck it in the case. I think I will just post a picture which explains better me trying to do it.

I think I am out of practice writing this blog. You won’t believe me that this is the 4th attempt at writing this post without deleting it by mistake ๐Ÿ˜„

Couldn’t resist

Today I went to the shops. I never meant to buy anything but couldn’t resist buying  this fabric ,story of my life๐Ÿ˜„! It is so gorgeous that I had to buy it. The colour is antique looking cream with antique coloured embroidery and pearls and sequins on it. The picture doesn’t do it any justice . Now i have to think what i am going to use it for. Or rather what themed doll should I make it for . The first thought that came to me was a fairy queen dress or Cinderella or an angel. What do you think?

Passing time

I was sitting and talking to mum. There is not much i can talk to her about now a days as she cannot hear properly and she repeats herself. So somtimes i just sit near her and let her conversation flow over me๐Ÿ˜„. Today i just sat and doodled while she sat and hummed to herself.

I will probably do the oranges again as i dont like what indid today.

Finished another one

So I managed to finish another tiny doll. I have one another tiny doll which I made long time ago and I am going to include that to the group to make up the 5 tiny dolls. I don’t think I have time to make another  new one now.  Now they can all be sent away. 
When I have time I plan to make more of these tiny ones as they are such fun to make.

How time flies!

How time flies and we are already well into the New Year. I think I can still wish you all a Happy New Year. 
Many things have been happening down my end since the start of December 2018. I came back from India after visiting mum and my hubby caught the Tammy flu. Because he has other health issues he became seriously ill. While he was recovering I got the same flu. I wish and hope no one ever gets it as it is hell. Anyway we both recovered a bit by Christmas and were able to spend a quiet Christmas. However soon after Christmas my hubby was taken ill again and had to be hospitalised for a week. He had to be given antibiotics intravenously as the bug he had was resistant to most antibiotics. After a week he was discharged and he felt better too. Just when we were thinking all was going to be well the infection reappeared so he is back on the same antibiotics. This time they did not admit him in hospital instead we had to make a daily trip to the hospital which was very exhausting. Now they have taught us how to administer the antibiotics on our own which is much better as it saves us driving to and fro to London just to get antibiotics. He is still on medication and may be on it for some time but the good mews is he is feeling much better now. 
So with all these going ons I have not had the energy or the inclination to do much hence I seemed to have missed wishing you all for Christmas and new year. 

I had joined a swap for doll ornament so have to honour some of the commitment I took on. We had to make 5 little doll ornamenys but I have been only able to make 3 of them. I couldn’t even do full justice to them. Here they are. Sorry for the bad photography, hope whoever gets it will like them.

Small fairy

This fairy is rather small. Smaller things are harder to finish I find. As always, I get interrupted so couldn’t finish her as quickley as I had hoped. Have to start another one soon. Its all happening suddenly and as usual time is running away and Christmas is almost on top of us. I hope I can get it all done by next week. Well at least finish up one of them.
This lady turned out larger than I thought she would. I used a strech fabric so her legs became rather slim and long . She is about 30cm big. I have to embellish her now. I will make another one with cotton and see how big she turns out. I think her face will be a challenge to make as it will be pretty small.  If it does turn out good then I will make it into a pattern.
