no sesame street, but . . .

Posted on: May 7, 2008

. . . look what I made!

Her name is Rose, and I really really like her! When I drag myself away from the computer, I will be sewing the side seams of a jumper for her. These things could be addictive! I have made her a brother of sorts, but I can’t share him because I am going to make another one as a gift and the recipient reads here and she will get him on the weekend and I am bad at keeping secrets but suffice to say he’s green. Mwahaha!

I also finished the Fetchings for the work colleague and will deliver them tomorrow. Easy peasy.

Holly challenged me to use 6 words to explain my philosophy of life. Well, that’s pretty tricky! How about this:

LIFE IS SHORT, LIVE IT WELL. I won’t go as far as tagging, but if you would like to have a go, do so and let me know. I would be really interested to read what your six words are.

If you have a few minutes, check out Holly’s blog. It’s fantastic. Her sock knitting makes me wonder if she is actually a real human!

Speaking of socks, my Vogue book arrived. I will review it directly. I haven’t had much of a chance to look yet.

My Professional Learning went well. Sometimes you get lucky and actually learn something. This was one of those times.

And finally, we Launcestonians are meeting on Saturday for coffee! I am EXCITED! I have never made it to a S&B meeting here as they are on Tuesdays and I work and in holidays I become a hermit worthy of my own cave. But Saturdays I can do! Hooray!!

I think I may have warned about the addictive nature of the babes! Love Rose. Especially the blue/purple hair – it rocks!

oh she looks gorgeous! Between you and RoseRed’s Wednesday Adams, I’m so inspired!

Oh! So cute! 🙂

I keep missing your posts! You have been busy. Thanks for stopping by. . . I love what you do when you’re procrastinating.

My philosophy?

Life is short…eat more chocolate.

Was it not enormous fun?? And we are doing it again in 3 weeks!!!
Oh, the green thing was for me, and I love him!! He matches my cardigan and though Harki and Peri want him desperately, I have put him safely up high!!! Your babes are so lovely!!
