Quite a few jobs ticked off the list this morning which will leave me free to to carry on with my little project of creating a wardrobe of clothes for the new doll. It will have to be an ongoing thing as the fact that Ruby is coming to stay for two days next week has rather crept up on me and put a limit on the time I have left to do it but as long as I get the dressing gown, pj's and a little pair of slippers made then I shall be quite happy. I also need to find a tiny doll sized teddy bear over the weekend to complete the outfit. I can't wait to see Miss Doodles face when she opens her gifts as we have also bought two extra outfits, a set of underwear and a set of three pairs of shoes. She is going to love it.
It's very dark here this morning with hardly a breeze so I have had to resort to the tumble dryer. Nothing will dry out there today. Only two loads to do and I do spin on the longest spin to get things as dry as possible so it doesn't take too long.
Christmas is pretty much sorted now. Most gifts are wrapped and everything we need for the meals is either in the freezer or the cupboard apart from fresh salad and veggies which I will get next week.........or should I say hubby will as there is no way I am going into town....lol. Just a regular shop to do later today to stock up on things we need. I don't need much as hubby does his last night shift tonight and then he's off until the beginning of January. DD finishes Christmas Eve for four days so I'll still need lunch stuff for her. I think I am as excited about not having to think of what to do for pack ups as I am about Christmas....lol.......it does get rather tiresome.
Anyway......this won't get the dressing gown made so I'll go and crank up the sewing machine. Wish me luck as I have never made anything quite this small before and there are as many pieces to sew together as on a full size garment.
Thanks for your visit today.
