The week has flown by, I wanted to make a doll but though I made two complete bodies I haven't had the time to start to make their clothes etc . I knew I would have a few free hours today so decided to make a friendship doll. I made 2 . I found I was in a pink mode today and one of the dolls turned out just fine. The rounder one wasn't quite the shape I expected because ,too late , I realised the velvet I was using stretched when I put in the stuffing. However I'm a far from perfect shape so why not the doll? I shall save the other two until I have plenty of time. I like making these friendship dolls because they don't take much time and its always a good feeling when one is finished.
Tony is still pretty well confined to the house and found time was passing very slowly, he decided to put some of the amazing treasures he has here on his auction site. I managed to get hold of a couple of things from his stash for me to keep before they were to be listed.He has quite a pile of old documents, I felt he wouldn't notice if I pulled out a couple, and he has several pretty boxes, he often buys them for me and until last week there wasn't an inch of space for anything more in my workroom. Last week I went through every thing and surprised myself by throwing out 3 bags full of stuff I've had for years and years, hence the room for more things. I shall try to keep some of the space, it is so much nicer to work in there.
