Got disappointed

Last year while I was shopping I came across these hand tissues. Usually when there is a design on the covering the tissues also have the same design on them. I thought the same was the case with these ones so I went and bought them as I had an idea what I would do with them. Unfortunately today when I wanted to opened them they were all plain inside☹️
What I had in mind was that I would cut out and paste the images on some surplus stitched heads that I have left over from my long time ago class doll's. 
I was greatly disappointed. It also would have been a kind of experiment to see how it would work out for doll's . Oh well it was not to be so I decided to draw a similar face on this head. I generally do the head last in a doll but this one I am starting the other way round. Now I have to make arms and legs. I will I think stick to the theme Frozen.

Faded rose

Elegant and beautiful even when faded.

Couple of weeks back they were advertising Hampton court flower show in our town centre and they were handing out a rose to everyone. I got one in yellow and gold. Left it in the vase and forgot about it. Yesterday when I looked, it had completely dried up , but I was struck by its beauty even when it had dried up.  It still looks so perfect amazing. Perhaps they had treated it with something so that it dried up without dropping petals or looking withered.

Doll for all seasons

This is the doll I made recently. I hope to make it available as a pattern. What do you think?
 She can be stitched up in any theme fabric and can be embellished to your hearts content. I hope you like her.

After a long gap

It is good to be back after a long time. On the home front things are better. But we have to give it another week to be sure that my husband's health is stabilised. So for the moment I am cautious.  At least we don't have to go to hospital often for checkups. That does free up a lot of time for me. I have been spending time in the garden and destressing. We have had some lovely weather and the garden is in full bloom. Here are some pictures I want to share.
I bought this Fushia last year from Hampton court flower show. This year it is laden with loads of delicate pink flowers

This flower pot I call it punch bowl. It is so pretty and full of different coloured flowers

 Alliums are one of my favourite flowers too. They look so lovely even when they have not bloomed and also when they have finished blooming. You can see both in this picture

You might remember this doll I made last year. I am in the process of making another so that I can write up a pattern for it. Hopefully it will be available soon. That's all for now. Will be making my rounds to all the blogs soon.
