Paperdolls by Kate Rice

This is the most gorgeous jumper I've ever seen. And anything I didn't know, I do now thanks to Youtube. Any tutorial at all is there. Good O! I tried to reinvent the design to use my girls, but seriously, Kate's version is so clean and right, I won't change a thing. Excepting the colours. While I think of it, go have a look at the other versions everyone has done (at Ravelry).

Ruby's Long Story: "The Time Went Farster Than Enythinck".

Ruby wrote this in maybe grade 4? I stitched it in 2004 or so but haven't shown you yet. My first intention was to make a quilt type thing, built of all these kiddie's things... but now I'm not so sure. It spends some of its time hanging on the wall as is.

Finished. An In-Between Task

On the red back door.

Pointy head. The new one is always the best one. I have these still sitting here, and every time I'm in between things or sick of something I'll finish one. They're mostly for Christmas so there's no desperate hurry. Did I show you the other one below?

This is the back for Claire's Wagga.

Home Today!!

I'm so happy. I made soup for luch and my bloke came home to eat. I've been putting together my daughter's Wagga back. I've had daylight hours to take photo's. I rang up because my new speaker headset doesn't work with Skype and got it sorted (had to ring in business hours). I went to the op-shop and bought a really nice linen skirt. AND I don't have skin cancer. I have a possible pimple that is nocturnally scratched.

My New Teacup And So On

Another patch. 'C' for Claire. "lgm' for Lucille Gladys Melia.

It's really not big enough, but the colour! I had to buy it. 50c. The rug was $5 and I bought 3. One for each grand-child. The jug was $3! Outrageous!
