Well, I had quite a productive afternoon yesterday!

I adapted the doll patterns, cut out the fabric (1.), started sewing all the tiny bits together (2.), turned them all right side out (3.) and started stuffing them. (4.) I especially love how the stick legs came out, aren't they funny?  {smile}

Unfortunately though this pattern will not work since it is waaaaaay too much work to make 6 or 7 of them! Such fiddly stuff will drive me crazy! I will finish this one and if my sister likes it I can make her one as well (With different fabrics. Don't worry Carla, these were just some left-overs...) but I think that will be it.

So I guess now I will be looking for a new x-mas present for the neighbors! Good thing I started with this whole x-mas thinking Early!  <wink>

Yesterday the weather was quite lovely, although I must admit I didn't spend a lot of time outside, since I was busy working on the pattern. I did manage to snap some Fall pics...

When I was editing them on PhotoScape I found this feature:
Tadaa: it's an oval!  {smile} I don't why it took me this long to discover this feature but it is FUN! (you can find it underneath the 'crop' feature, just click on the box saying 'circle' on it)

Since it is Friday once again (Yes!) I will be off  to Little Bit, but first I will have some tea-time... (another oval!)

Upon my return this afternoon I will be busy flipping through those Photoshop books because they have arrived in the library! Oh the possibilities....

Flooded waters...

With all the recent rainfall and snow melting in the mountains, some flooding occurred once again in our valley. Yesterday, whils...
