what do you think of my baby ? I had to take her outside for her to be photographed as it was too dark inside ( please ignore that the garden fairy has been too much of a slut to pack the garden furniture away ) I re- birthed her from a berenguer doll , she is weighted to 8.5 lbs . The dress took an age to knit but hopefully it was worth it . She is being raffled in aid of the Ambucopter. I donated one last year and he raised enough to keep the ambucopter flying for an hour , that is two lives that hopefully were saved. I am hoping this little poppet can raise enough for at least two hours in the air. She is at the Ambucopter charity shop in Spalding.
There , that is my advertisement over for the day .
Things here at the madhouse were going quite well for a while , and then we have had just about everything that the fates could throw at us . At least the house is habitable again , most of the soot and thick grey dust have been cleaned away and we are almost back to normal ,( whatever normal is in this house .)
The money pit ( my birthday car , joke ) is still devouring cash at an alarming rate , it would have been so much cheaper to just go out an buy a new one , I shouldn't be a bit surprised if W decided that the garage needs central heating installed.
On the knitting front I have been finishing off ufo's ( boring ) , but , I am waiting for a delivery of special wool , it is black with a fleck in it , and it is going to be a full length coat when it grows up . It should be quite challenging, not the knitting , but I am going to line it , and I am a bit like a cow with a gun when it comes to sewing things .It is bitterly cold here now, and I am just going to cast on for a pair of felted slippers .
