January flew by this year, and February is doing the same thing! Hopefully I will post a photo of the completed give away bag tonight. This is something else I have been working on this week. In fact it is this doll that has set me pondering about how time flies. I started this doll somewhere near the end of 2007. I remember sewing her head on in October of that year, but her head was all wobbly and I gave up. I am not a softie maker, but I was inspired by all of my children (who all make the most wonderful softies!) and some sewing successes I had in August 2007. I decided that I had it in me to design a doll and make her, despite never having done it before. The last couple of weeks I have been sorting through my crafting things (a legacy of changing rooms and me moving to the room without storage - don't worry, my Bradley took me to Ikea to remedy the storage problem.) and setting up my sewing room. You can see a little of my desk in the doll photo. Well, I found the doll with her ridiculous wobbly head and decided to finish her off. Miss 22 watched me as I took her head off and commented that I was halfway to serial killerdom. I guess she took my "finish her off" comment a different way! Now her head isn't wobbly anymore and I even made her some clothes. She isn't an Amish doll (faceless) so she's not quite finished yet, but I'm working on it. I have learnt a lot from making her and may just become a softie maker after all. Check in later for some bag updates!
