Every so often I go back to my first love which is doll making and I made this little thing yesterday. Very simple pattern just drawn up and stuffed a face and hands added. She has very big hands! The fabric was a head scarf I bought in Japan years ago and loved and I think this little lady loves it too.
I have two others of different sizes in the making.
John went off fishing and was successful, I did a bit in the garden as finally the sun has come out.
There were supposed to be more photos but something in the system ate them so I didnt feel I needed to hang around and wait again. There are mysteries we dont know about in computers.
I am also trying my hand again at lino cutting, it is back breaking, I think I need a different height for my table.
Wanda asked if it was unusual for our small birds to nest in winter, and as our winters are not really terribly cold, although we do complain if we have a frost, as far as I can tell, no most of our birds start nesting around July I think they need to get the rearing over before it gets too hot. For the honey eaters in particular this is when a lot of our gum (eucalyptus ) flower.
I did go to the bird books to see when they should nest and the two I found didnt tell me, I probably should have sat on the computer but I was busy.
