That done, I threw together a beef stew for tonight and Ruby helped me make these to keep our strength up:
A little bit of last minute sewing was required in the shape of 6 Dammit Dolls one of which is to donate to the raffle. These little guys go together really quickly.
I worked on them while having a chat to Lucy who was having a chat to me while doing her housework - this is us!!!
I had to gather their necks as they were a bit on the thick side! I used top stitching thread for this and I'm a total convert to this brilliant thread, for buttons and anything that would otherwise cause sewing cotton to snap just when you don't want it to :o)
What happy little chaps:
So that's it, all done! DH has gone to get the children from school to enable me to get ready for tonight. Which, of course, is the reason I'm on here blogging - hahahahaha!!!
I wouldn't want to break my promise to bring you naff music every day this week so that was my justification for blogging ;) This little number is a true classic. I even had the album and knew every single word to every song - I know that Monkee Maker cannot fail to enjoy this one as it does have some relevance to her.
