As I said in yesterday's post, I've got lots of crafty things on the go at the moment and not many completed items! Fortunately I managed to finish off a few things today (although sadly the housework wasn't one of them - oops!)
This sock-monkey was for one of Dorothy's friend's birthday presents and is a few days late but apparently she really likes it - although stuffing it at yesterday's sewing night with my friends caused rather a lot of hilarity!
My friend Alison had seen my knitted bunnies and asked me to make one for her daughter which I did, but then I decided it wasn't good enough because you could see the stuffing around the nose because of the different wool, so I knitted another and here she is.
My other completed project was part of my Valentine's swap gift so I can't show you it yet.
But Kitty will be pleased to know that her doll is now sewn together and just needs a trip to
the dress shop,
and the beauticians (to put her face on!)
I'm very fed up with the postal service though because I ordered this book from Amazon and it was apparently dispatched at the beginning of the week and due to be delivered on Wednesday - and it STILL isn't here! I am so excited about it and have waited in for the last three days! Grrrrrr!
But what the postman did bring was my postcards from Marianne at Applehead
and then a wonderful package arrived today for Dorothy with a lovely note about how much she had enjoyed seeing Dot's pictures inspired by her work.
Inside the package was a fabulous selection of old papers for Dot to use for future pictures - and I am SOOOOO jealous! It's going to take a lot of self restraint to stop me from playing with them!
Thank you very much Marianne - Dot is delighted!
So let's just hope my book arrives tomorrow so I can get knitting again and hopefully this little fellow will appear on my doorstep too - I can't wait!
(and it's okay Waldorf, the kettle is on and the tea is ready and waiting for you!)
Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
