The strange and not to everyone's taste little doll on the right came home with me from Greenwich a couple of weeks ago. His friend on the left is the beginning of a copycat doll. Linda Sue sent me lots of the plastic face masks ages ago (thanks Linda Sue!), and they are all in a glass jar (an arrangement seen on pinterest which I liked) but this one has now come out of the jar and been painfully sewn into a hat. (Painful for me not the doll who is only plastic) Her body and limbs are well on the way today but no photos yet.
The rain is back and it is milder now. The garden is happier I think.
Below is a lining for a crochet bag I am making for my friend. She liked the bag the Judi Dench character has in Chocolat which is straw I think, and I am attempting to recreate that in crochet. The circles were easy enough, but working out the rest of the bag is slightly trickier. I am nearly there-just need to do some handles and put poppers in.tutorial on a blog called Zoom Yummy, via another blog called 2 Create in Colour, via tumblr. They look easy so I am going to give them a go when I have finished the doll and the bag.
