Well Frenchie mk III is well on the way. She has stuffed arms and legs this time, which is MUCH better. Her head is a bit firmer and her eyes are beads not French knots. She is all joined together and has hair. All she's waiting for is a frock which I will do tomorrow.
I have also been working on an unknown creature as I had a rush of blood to the head and felt I'd like to enter the Second Annual Softie Awards on Flickr. The 5 categories are Pink or Plaid, Elephant Tribute, Picnic Food, Cutest Face and Embroidered To Death. I am now trawling through my Flickr pics to see if I have anything suitable for entering. Talk about leaving it 'til the last minute - the deadline is midnight tomorrow!!!! Would anyone take a pea on a picnic???
Ooh ooh. Exciting!! I have two little babies listed on Craftjuice at the moment. It's not a competition, but if you'd like to take a look and cast a vote if you like them I'd be very grateful. They've done pretty well so far on their own but every little bit helps Lola and Maria's Doll. Thanks.
I have branched out slightly today, dabbling in sugar craft for a change. It is Maria's (belly dancing tutor - she of The Party) actual birthday today and we have class tonight. So Julia and I have bought a cake and decorated it for her.
As you can see Maria is one of the many hoards of David Tennant fans. She is also rather partial to a bit of Philip Glenister (Gene Hunt from Life on Mars/Ashes to Ashes/etc), though which bit I wouldn't like to say. When we asked her what she wanted for her birthday she asked for these two blokes so we've done the best we can in the circumstances. :0) Dressing up - dancing - cake - pub - what a night I have in prospect!!!
