What Have I done this Week and What I Will Do.
I have done a lot of work on my new doll. Her face is finished, her body has one arm attached and quite a realistic pair of boobs. I have sewn the feet and have a left and right leg which is always good. Later today I will stuff them and might even get them sewn on. I do have Twisted Stitches tonight so that will slow me down a bit.
I am still thinking about her hair and how to place her for display.
I started painting some silk for her outfit using a technique from Fibre and Stitch. I’ll show that when it is done and before I cut it up. I am thinking a smocked dress would be pretty good.
I have spent a few hours playing with my granddaughters.
I spent quite a lot of time writing my Presidents Report for my Doll Clubs newsletter. I also had to write a Presidents report for the year as our AGM is coming up. I also worked out the challenges for the rest of the year and the format for our last Funday for the year in September. I doubt that we will continue with the monthly meetings, we don’t get a lot of members at them and petrol and time are precious commodities. It depends on what the new committee want to do as half of the current committee aren’t continuing and I am not running a meeting every month next year. Hopefully someone else will want to be President and I might have a shot at the newsletter as I have been writing a fair chunk of it this year to help out the current editor.
Greg and I went our last night for takeaway and then too see 'Mamma Mia' which was excellent.
I have read the new Nora Roberts ‘Tribute’ which was excellent as always and I have started to read ‘The Complete Idiots Guide to Getting your Romance Published.’ As that is a long time goal of mine and my daughter had the book so I borrowed it. It is actually a good read.
Washed, hung out and brought in two loads of washing. Quite a milestone as I am post-hysterectomy and haven’t done anything housework wise for months. I did this without any pain which is good but I did break something on the machine and now it won’t spin which is bad.
Cooked lots of Matt’s favourite foods as he is home for a week from Army stuff in East Timor.
I didn’t shop for food which I will have too do tomorrow as I go back to work on Thursday, so tonight we are having curried veg and rice which is fine as we both like vegie food and I didn’t get anything out of the freezer meat wise. Matt is staying with his girlfriend so he won’t be forced to eat vegie but he wouldn’t care anyway.
I am going to research SALA South Australian Living Artists as a advertising venue for our Quilt Exhibition next year. Attendances in November have fallen off for the last few years so moving it to another time of the year is our first port of call.
This week I am going back to work on Thursday and on Thursday night Greg and I are starting our art classes. We don't have anything we both do to discuss and let me tell you we don't have anything in common either.
then Friday I have work and then the Folk and Decorative Artists meeting. Then work on Saturday and Sunday. I am determined to have this doll together by Sunday and progress on her outfit as well. I need to plan out her shoes I have an idea but don't know if it will work or not.
Just another normal week here.
