shes got lovely legs
these are the legs of my month of softies project for september. I really love the stripes and the shape of the legs. (there is a pattern if you follow that link). However, there is a problem with these legs...
thats right, they have no body! I have one cut out of the spotty fabric they are laid upon, but I am not sure if it works in real life, although it goes pretty well in this dodgy night-time photo. so, it is a work in progress, I have also sewn arms but i dont like them, I used the same stripey fabric, I did the arms first, but i think they need to be different to the legs. I haven't managed to do the month of softies for a while now, and I am determined to sort out these niggles and get this one up there. it seems slow, but I am hand sewing (teeny stitches), its the only way for these narrow limbs!
In other news, look what I bought today, new cereal/dessert bowls. lovely and green (to match my kitchen walls behind! ) and they were in the sale, so I bought 6. I do need them, as recently my kitchen drawer fell out, taking with it the whole pile of bowls from the cupboard underneath, I caught the drawer but all the bowls fell and most of them smashed on the hard floor. I have been mostly using the kids plastic bowls but they are really horrible.
They are gisela graham ones, I didnt realise this until I got home. I had planned to go back and buy the whole set(or get them put away!), but on the bottom they also say 'hand wash only' oh-oh maybe not then. My dishwasher is very gentle....
Also, I think I might be ill tomorrow, I have been shivery for two days and tonight I feel decidedly rough, uurgh. and I have to go and make the kids lunch boxes now heave so book me a sick day for tomorrow (oh I wish mums could phone in sick) please?
