The way these dolls are going scarecrows probably count

Haven't made a doll for years, but new grand daughter well. Then daughter came along (25) said I want one you never made me one, so making the  2 - I think daughter will get 'ET'. Can't go frightening my little baby can I?

Wow Inka that looks really good. I am so impressed. Tick v. good. 

Stuffing dolls at moment. One I've just done looks like ET. Found that one of those honey swirler things is really good for stuffing legs!

Dean does that mean you'll be working proper hours. No more getting up at 3.30?

OH used to get up at 5. Still can't break habit of bed early, up early but not as early as 5. Me, never followed that pattern!

The son that fell ou of dustbin broke all 4 of his limbs in a year at different times. as you do when you are a sporty teenager.

He's still doing it. But not since last one when he had to have an op as well,

Don't think this settee is quite in that class 

Still it's my New Year project when I can't get into garden. If I can then everything else goes on the back burner!

What's the weather like in your area?

Cold but so far dry here. Clouds are building though and its getting darker!

Definately more wet on the way, looking at the hills!

Hi all

I wanted a small settee to do up. Ebay semed the best bet. Failed in my bidding as wasn't really sure what to do. D. boyfriend said he would do next one for me. Brilliant lad got a 2 seater sofa for 99p. We had a lovely drive across the Cotswolds to get it and it is still not re-furbished, threw an old curtain on it as a throw to hide the hideous fabric, but in fact cushions, springs etc in very good condition and comfortable. so very usable.Bought upholstery fabric from local flea market about 10m for £10 so when I get round to doing it will b a really good bargain.

That is my only e-bay purchase. i would still hesitate to use them again though. It's the bidding!

Been out this morning - WW then shops, then social service review for ancient parent. Walked home slowly. Maybe shouldn't have done that but don't like asking OH all the time.(foot)
