I have just finished my 2nd rag doll. As I used rather stretchy material, she's larger than the first one!! Weird.
Here is Jessica:
Her hat is a bit in the dark but it's the same as Hannah's with the addition of a pink bobble on the end.
Here they are both together:
You can see Jessica's head a bit more clearly in this photo. The hair is sparkly beige but seems to have come out yellow here.
I became a bit hooked on making Dotee Dolls. (If you want to see the inventor of these little cuties, click below). Dotee Dolls are an altered art doll created by Dot of http://dotslifeandart.blogspot.com
A little Japanese Dotee.
Another Japanese Dotee, with butterflies on it.
And this is the back. I reversed the pattern and coloured the fabric to match the front, adding 'hair' too.
Here's a Christmas one with sparkly hair.
I have done some others too but can't post them just yet. Shhhhhhh!
I am in the process of making a Santa at the moment. He's very fat!
Max - Buster's Mate
Buster has a friend called Max who calls for him quite often. We always know when Max is at the door as much squealing goes on from inside and out! Yesterday they happily trotted off together but later in the day, Max reappeared on his own. He was waiting for Buster to come out - they must have lost each other somewhere.
The cats are frightened of Max but all he wants to do is play. They teased him through the cat flap.
He's looking at BlackJack through the cat flap! Black Jack and Sandy were both growling at poor Max. I managed to get one of both sides of the door:
Poor Max, eventually he went away and Buster came home later on his own and very muddy. He hasn't stayed out at all since his long disappearance thank goodness.
As the sun set, the sky was quite dramatic yesterday, so I roamed around with my camera.
Red sky and swirly clouds over the living willow fence.
A line of cloud above Maghera (the hill opposite us). In the foreground you can just see a yellow hollyhock still flowering in our garden. Click on the photo for the best view.
The moon appeared.
The thin red line over Lough Graney
Doorus Sky - probably my favourite.
BlackJack and Sandy were keeping an eye on me!
A few leaves are still left on the Liquidamber.
We had a power cut last night at about 10pm. Jim brought me a Baileys, which sent me to sleep! I went to bed at 10 and woke up at 3am! So here I am. Cup of tea time.....
