This week has left me nearly empty handed as far as creative endeavours go. I have been tinkering with code for the website shopping cart, writing an article, and stocking shelves in the studio after a rather large shipment of supplies arrived. Oh, and of course the most loathly task of all, dusting shelves and cleaning.
As a reward for cleaning, I did finish making hair for my Annie style doll.
This was fun. First I crocheted a skull cap, then I added the individual strands of hair the way that one would make a knotted rug. Then came the trimming. This was scary. That’s my mother’s fault. I distinctly remember a good hiding I got after trimming my own fringe when I was about three years old. I think I never held scissors for a long time after that. Trimming Annie’s hair was fraught with anxiety. I kept checking to see if someone was going to catch me at it. But I was brave and I did it.
Tomorrow is my sister’s birthday. She has such a busy social life that I had to phone her today already to wish her a blessed year. To celebrate she is going hot air ballooning and dining with friends. I got her a snazzy handbag in the shape of an owl, but don’t go blabbing, she hasn’t seen it yet!
Also tomorrow, I’m getting together with a group of doll crafters to work on our projects. I haven’t decided yet what I’m doing. Fortunately I have no end of UFO’s lying around, I will just grab a likely candidate and give it a go. If I feel like being different, I might even work on a bear!
Wishing you a creative weekend.
