Doing a bit of this and that
This has to be the ugliest doll I have ever made. Millie thought she might like it, I still havent got it to her so goodness knows what she will think when she sees it!
I think the problem is that the cheeks are up too high and look like mad eyes which are up even higher.
I also made a heap of paper beads today, and a couple made from ice cream wrappers that I had used the iron on, wasnt sure if they would work but they seem to have been ok. They are the silver ones.
I usually make beads from fabric or tyvek so these were a new thing to try out. Not sure why I have never used straight paper before.
I cut up a sheet of paper I had under where I spray and paint stuff so lots of interesting colours.
I am walking and doing mundane things like house work, ;;my toe is being a bit uncomfortable but I am perservering with no dressing on it, trying to get the callous softened so it will not be there in the future. I may be being opomistic, we will see.
It has been beautifully cool but I guess it will warm up again soon. Not wet so I am moving hoses again.
Max and I are still enjoying our early morning walks, we see at lest two pairs of kangaroos each morning, usually a mother and child, the females at this time of the year will have a smaller joey again in their pocket as the others are weaned. They are usually to far for me to take photos but it is lovely to see them.
