What a To Do

I have a To Do list in my head. Not the best place for it. It’s all the projects that I want to do. I need to write it down and put it into some kind of order. Then I can crack on with it.

I think my main priority is to begin a task that I have all the required materials for. (I am sure that there must be one on my list! Surely?)

First though, I need to go and tidy my crafty space and give new homes to some of the lovely new things that I got for my birthday and Christmas. My desk is one of the spots that Hells liked to sleep in during her last few weeks. It will be nice to spend some time pottering around there.)

Betty for Betsy!

So, it’s been a while, (OK, so years rather than months!) but here we are. Our family has grown and our location has moved, but I am still ticking along just fine.

I thought I would just share my latest little project that I finished last week. When I say latest little project, I perhaps mean longest! This was a, very overdue, birthday present for my niece, Betsy.

It came to a halt when I tried to make her dress in one evening, so that I could deliver it the next day and it all went horribly wrong! I just couldn’t bring myself to go back to it, then moving house got in the way. (And my useless memory filed it away into the back of my memory!)

I loved making her and seeing her come to life, although I was quite shocked at how long she took, my stopping and starting aside! She isn’t something that I could churn out on a daily basis. But then she isn’t something that I would want to, that would make her less special. Betty_01
