HUGE changes in the yard...I'll post pictures as soon as we get the rock spread in the limestone walkway I'm digging across the front. But all the beds I want to dig for this year are in, and now it's down to keeping it alive over the summer. Helps to have a smaller yard!
In the meantime, the hubby has built the most wonderful sewing cubby for me, enabling me to create a multi-functional workspace with the rest of the room. So now I have a cubicle for sewing, a wall of table space with separate areas for painting and sculpting...shelving for the Fabric Stash, and the old entertainment center he'd built ages ago for storage of all that crap I can never resist bring home.
I have dithered about this last week, knowing I could really get started if I'd just do it. But the problem has been that I'm down to a certain hard part of doll making that wears me out, and since I began a dozen or more dolls last March (and did all the fun part), I have LOTS of this hard part to do. Namely: hands.
The pattern piece for the separate thumb is as small as a pea in some cases, and sewing those tiny thumbs on, stuffing those tiny fingers...well, let's just say this is not an instant gratification part of the doll making. BUT I started, so the momentum will carry me through. Sorta like going to the gym.
Hope everyone is staying in out of the heat--or if you live in a place with cold winters and lovely summers, staying out in the sunshine. I personally am enjoying the AC and some old movies while I sew.
