Hope you are all having a good Monday!
I have just finished putting my groceries away, which hubs took me to get (it was a days work!) Our little one is up for her afternoon nap, so I thought I would do a little post-not sure if I'm wise or not, but sure we all can make fools of ourselves and anyway I'm unlikely to see you anyway soon and by that stage it'll have been forgotten about:)
What am I talking about, you ask! Well, I have admired greatly all your prim dolls over the last while and thought I would attempt my own, but as my title suggests, I was greatly out of my comfort zone-I found it really difficult to make the simple look and I confess now and hope this does not cause offense; no matter how hard I try, I cannot do extreme prim YET! There, I have said it! So my attempt is supposed to be middle of the road.
Still not sure why they are not quite right-I didn't get a prim pattern, I just tried to adapt a dolls pattern-maybe thats the problem? Am I trying to make them too pretty?
Anyway, I shall take constructive criticism like a grown girl should, in order to improve next time, but I don't think there will be a next for dolls, as I can honestly say, I did not enjoy making them:(
Ok, ready for a laugh?.........
Sorry, the light is shining a bit bright-it's difficult to see, but they do have two different print dresses-the next pic might show them better.
The bigger one has a sac tied round her with some twigs and moss. The little one just has a rusty pin on her apron.
The next pics show where they sit meantime.
Think I should just stick to my quilting and stitcheries:)
I was reading a book over the last while and didn't get much sewing done. I don't know if any of you have read it or not, but I don't think I shall forget it for a while!
The book is entitled 'Gone in a heartbeat' and is the story of David and Marie Works, who lost TWO of their daughters in a shooting in their church grounds in Colorado Springs.It was a very challenging, disturbing yet encouraging read and reminded me that we are only on a short journey here and to let each day count for the things that are important.
On that note, I'm off to prepare for tonights dinner-Boursin chicken. I must post the recipe soon as it is a very easy but effective meal.
Have a great week, Shazy x
