Christmas angel done

My Christmas angel done at last in a flurry. All because I am finally moving yeah. I might colour the flowers so that they match the colour scheme of the doll. Once I am settled I will do that. This was a doll from Sherry Goshan’s class. I had a hard time making her smile. She is too serious for an angel๐Ÿ˜„. I will have to see what I can do later. Think I might lost touch a bit with my face painting.   Her skirt is made out of two plastic wine glasses. Rest of the body is made from paper clay and her hair is tassels .

Christmas angel

 I have always tried to make one doll every year for Christmas. So this year even though all my stuff is packed away I did not want to miss making one. Sherry Goshan had a class for an angel which did not require much sewing so I decided to take this class. Still some way to go but its slowly taking shape.

That time of the year coming up

 December is marching on us rapidly and we are coming to that time of the year when everyone starts gearing up for festivities. Our doll club has a get together every year. We bring finger food and have some fun time together. We are going to have our secrete santa again this year. This is what I am making. Its a pin cushion.  She is not complete yet but thought would share. I will complete this when I get home

After a long time after Covid, we decided to go to this charming little city. We were not disappointed. Like many Italian towns it feels so vibrant. Bologna has the oldest university in the world and the only city in the world where the professors are given the highest honour even more than a national leader or a hero. 

What a change it makes after I come across so much of oohing and aahing over a political leader as though they are Gods.

Removing fb friends

 Today I was going through the friends list on my fb account.  I do this from time to time just to make sure there is no one there who is not supposed to be there. As I went through the list I found several friends whom I had to remove. It was so sad. These were friends who had passed. As I removed the names I felt a pang in my heart remembering them and how and where I had met them and had some lovey time together. It is a very sad feeling when you realise that they have gone away forever.

Not much happening here

 I thought I would be in my new home by now but unfortunately that has not happened yet. It will probably be in September now. So my crafting is not happening. Thank goodness I have my piano with me otherwise  I honestly would have gone a bit mad. Now I drive my husband and my piano teacher mad๐Ÿ˜‚. My piano teacher has great faith in me and says I will be playing in concerts in 20 years time. So I told him he is too optimistic because I probably will be pushing daisies in 20 years time๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

‘Cinderella in the round’

 Last Saturday I went to see Cinderella in the round. It was performed for a limited period so was lucky to get seats. The ballet was awesome. Performance and music was superb and the costumes were amazing. The ballet being adapted to be performed in the round arena was very skilfully done 

If it ever comes your way, don’t miss it.
