Well – a friend was selling this head, and I thought she had a cute nose….

A New Outfit For Sadie

I saw this photo in a magazine –

– and I thought Sadie would like a similar outfit! I already had the boots, so I just had to make the dress and leggings. It was a cold day so I added a hat.

A hug with Dan, who, as you can see, has not dressed up! I did comb his hair though – not that it makes a lot of difference! What a good job Sadie loves him so much just the way he is.

Before Shipping

Just checked my order status on the Elfdoll website – before shipping!  Actually, that’s what my order status on the Soom site says too…but I know that means ‘A Long Time Before Shipping’ whereas on the Elfdoll site, it usually means it will be shipped pretty soon. So, it shouldn’t be long before Lizzie’s head is here! Wheeeee!

And Robin’s boots arrived today, they are very cool. Must get a photo. I ordered a pair of black boys’ shoes too but I don’t really know who they are for yet – I may give them to Jim. I reckon I could get Robin’s jumper finished tomorrow night – well, the knitting bit anyway. Not sure about steaming it and sewing it up. Noah is not happy because it means he will have to try it on…

I don’t seem to be able…

…to say anything that anyone finds remotely interesting at the moment…sigh…

Never mind, I’ll talk to myself for a bit. 31 days since I ordered Robin, 20 days since I ordered Lizzie. At least she shouldn’t be too long a wait! I’m excited about her coming home as I don’t have any Oasis dolls yet. I think she will look lovely with the other girls.

I hoped to finish Robin’s jumper tonight but ended up setting up the new digital TV instead. We have a bit of digital coverage in our area! Hooray! The clearer picture and bigger screen will make it infinitely more horrible to watch Holby City and Casualty. Oh well, now the telly is sorted, I can get back to knitting tomorrow…a jumper for Niamh next.

I found I had more leather under the bed than I previously thought so I’m considering making Robin some leather trousers, guess it would be best  to line them. As part of my reseacrh for his character, I have just finished reading Billie Piper’s autobiography. For the next part I was going to re-read Jilly Cooper’s ‘The Man Who Made Husbands Jealous’ but I just bought her new book so I will read that first. You see the kind of rubbish I read? This is why I can’t join in discussions about Top Ten Novels and all that!
