Touching Base....

Well, I have no pics today, but that doesnt mean I have been idle. I have had abusy week doing the normal mundane stuff..... ie ironing, vacuuming, etc. But took Friday off to do some sewing, by now, my family knows Friday is sewing day, so leave me be... LOL. Doesnt mean they do, but yesterday I achieved from wo to nearly go a swap project for a group I am on..... As Naomi, and Khris may pop by and check my blog, I can not show the project in question as it MAY be for one of them... LOL......
I will take photos however of the cats I am making, just need to wait for the clouds to clear so I can get some good light. The cats are not quite finished, have more painting to do yet, and need to give them faces.... faces always scare me...... but will give it ago soon..... so as they are WIPs, I will try get a photo of the progress.
Home life is giving me the irates at the moment, so it is good that I can occasionally hide away and lose myself in my crafting, I am sure you all know what this is like.
Well, thats it for now, off to the grocery store to buy some food.... boring!!!!! But as there are extra kids here tonight, being Saturday, I guess I should have some food for them. Cleaned the fridge this mornign and the old mother hubbard would be proud.... it is BARE!!!
Have a GREAT weekend everybodeeeeee

and then there were two......

Well, Finished my second DeeDee dolphin.... so want to call it DooDoo, but it tells me his name is Donny. So what can I do... LOL... meet DeeDee's brother Donny.
I found the second dolphin so much easier than the first one, but isnt that always the way. You make one, find out what does and doesnt work for you and then make more once you get the pattern sorted. I may make more, I may not, but am happy to have these two completed.
My next project is a pattern from Hidden In the Attic. It is a prim pattern of a mother cat and her kittens. Will see how it goes and IF i can get it looking half as good as the original, I will be happy. The painting does worry me a bit tho, maybe calling out for help from someone if I get stuck. Wish me luck. I also have a pile of UFOs that a screaming to get finished, maybe I should work on those first..... Oh what a dilemma.....

Wearing L plates in blogland

Ok here goes nothing..... sitting here with my pal Naomi who has talked me into starting my own blog...... So now, here goes...... hmmm what will I blog about???? My latest creation maybe..... This week I made DeeDee the dolphin, some one was kind enough to get on my case about making this dolphin, that I though I would get it done before said friend came to visit today. So, a design of 'Melly and Me' is Dee Dee the dolphin.
