Time just whips by, and before you know it, August is here! I am currently making a large circle for Linda Sue, but that is not finished yet so no pictures. Here are some other things I made over the last couple of months and why I made them...
I also made a card. I stole the idea from Pinterest and made my own version.
What a cute face!
Alice and the other props for the tea party. I really enjoyed making her and want to try more papier mache dolls.
I found a vintage doily pattern when looking for star patterns so made a few. I have put those on hold for a while though.
This week has been a bit stressful. On Sunday night I had to rush Tiger to the vets, worried that she had thrombosis, which if she had would have meant the end. Luckily it wasn't that and she is fine, but the week began with a very scary night and three hours sleep! Then this morning I went to drive to work and the car wouldn't start. An expensive call to the AA later, ( I had to get home start as I broke down at home) and a bus ride to work, and I had booked a mechanic to come this evening. It was the battery-almost completely dead, so another eighty pounds later I had a new one. I had to help him test it and he explained why they die. We were standing there with the leads attached to the battery and the machine showing bad news. It was like heart surgery for a car. I am looking forward to a weekend with no major dramas!
