I had this lovely delivery from Karen at Stitching Life. Aren't they lovely? She dyes such rich colours and interesting threads. Mind you, they go like hot cakes so when she is selling you have to be quick! Can't wait to use them.
Hebe has decided she wants a bit of Steampunk. Big boots, lace gloves and some rather fetching stockings with big girl pants. The top layer is being worked on, in my head still.
She is nothing at all like this little girl!! A friend mentioned ragdolls the other day and I realised I had never made one. I'm really quite pleased with her, just a shame she is only 10 inches tall.
We had a visitor in the house the other night and it's not even Halloween. I managed a couple of quick photos but the light was low and I didn't have the flash on so as not to scare it.
We seem to have a lot of bats this year. There is a bat box at the top of the garden and we wonder if they are using it at all, it's very hard to tell and I'm reluctant to open it to have a look, besides which it would be illegal to do without a licence.
There was beautiful light this morning through some of the plants like the Crimson King maple.
Ever hopeful faces at the table, they don't miss a trick.
But after being so good and patient (and a little bit fuller)...
...they did play very nicely.
I am hopefully going to make something out of this pile. John has had a thought on a topic for a quilt......
I hope you have a creative week!
