Wet weather and Hope!
The last couple of days we have had massive storms, lots of crazy wind and rain rain and more rain...
As scary as it was I am so grateful we are with the lucky ones, only being cut of from town for the weekend due to rising flood waters over roads.(My heart goes out to those who have lost everything in these floods).......
With severe weather warnings and reports coming over the radio to stay at home (if you are high and dry), I thought I would get my craft on ,, I kept my mind occupied by trying my hand at making a pattern for a rag doll,,,,
I was a little pleased at the result :)
I started by drawing a body and head shape, legs and arms onto coffee stained calico, I doubled the calico over and pinned together, sewing along the pencil line.. ( I was a little worried about sewing such small pieces together so opted to do sew first and cut later ;)....
I then cut out the pieces, turned and stuffed......
Right now I am off to open up this shabby old cottage and let some air flow through, everything is so damp and getting a little stinky.. I have loads of washing to do , mopping floors and washing walls,, Cleaning up the yard of fallen branches and muddy chicken coops,,,, its still overcast but we are seeing little snippets of blue sky :)
I hope all is well in your world and you have a bright and sparkly day..
Thanks for popping by
Until next adventure
