All Better Now.....

Well I'm very sorry about my little outburst earlier on today. Housework, hormones or a combination of the two? Who knows. Anyway I am pleased to be able to introduce Frenchie's sister - the bane of my life - Phoebe! Ta da! I chose the name cuz she looks a bit long and willowy like the character in 'Friends', and she's a bit daft too.

So first incarnation with black hair was NOT good. Something just wasn't right, don't you agree?

Pink hair now that's more like it!! A slightly paler version of her sister's but still cute nonetheless.
And here they are together in their new frocks. Frenchie's was recycled from a little girl's blouse and Phoebe's was made from patchwork fabric.

Someone asked yesterday what their crafts were if they wanted to join UKCF. I hope these photos show you that they are well and truly textiles girls.

Here's Frenchie choosing some threads.
"Look! I've found my hair!!"

Phoebe is a bit more daring. She wants to have a go at needlefelting. "Be careful with that needle, miss!"
And now she's found the kiln.
"Keep away Phoebe. It might be hot!!"
"NO! Phoebe!! It is not nice to push your sister into the kiln!"
Oh dear. Is she starting to show a darker side to her character. I'm going to have to watch this one.
The thing that really cheered me up was my next creation. I had half-started this a while ago and, as everything was going 'pooh' with my own designs, I decided to go back to tried and trusted - Silly Girls.
Meet Lola!!
I love her to bits!!! Named after the feisty doc in 'Holby City', I found this fab skirt at the bottom of my stash and it suits her perfectly. I love her hair too. What does anyone else think?
Need to get some brown felt for the eyes. This beige was a bit pale. Might add some beads to the hair on the next one.
Just a quick post tonight. I'm waiting for OH to get back from Argos extra with two bedside cabinets and a chest of drawers. We're having a flat pack night. Woohoo!!! Trying to get the bedroom finally sorted.

I found your blog today through kate-beautiful and had to comment that housework puts me in a very bad mood, too, so you're not alone.

Love your pink-haired silly girls.

That Phoebe is naughty!! I think she is pretending to be Gretel from Hansel and Gretel and is pushing the witch into the oven :)
