Our Pets now Passed

This is my favourite picture of our cat Whiskey. He was a really lovely boy, but sadly one of those kitties that go for a walk and not come back. He was a rescue cat. we miss him very much.
Using my new camera i am very happy with how the pictures look. This first picture is the Jumpers for the dolls I am making to put under the Christmas tree in K Mart. 70 made so far...
This next picture is the view of where my stash is held in the place called the bar. Notice the cat in the cat bed at the top? There are two beds here. This is on top of a childs wardrobe, it used to belong to my daughter when she was little. She is now in her mid 20s.
This is the large crate that the dolls and clothes go into as i do some work each day.

Just a couple of dolls so far, I will be working in earnest now that i have enough fabrics to do them.

Some examples of how i work, 10 sets of dolls dresses ready to sew. 3 sets of dolls bodies ready to turn and stuff. 10 sets of boys shirts and shorts ready to sew. This way I can vary what i do, Sometimes knitting, sometimes sewing.

Melbourne Craft & Quilt Fair

I recieved in the post yesterday a preview magazine for the Melbourne Craft & Quilt Fair
Thursday - Sunday July 23 - 26, 2009.
This is a great event, I always look forward to going to things like this Just the atmosphere of being amongst like minded people gives me such a buzz, (plus you get to see some amazing quilts).
Today i went to the hairdressers to get my hair cut, Not a big thing you may say, but after cutting my own hair for many many years, (the last time i got it cut it properly it cost $12) about 5 years ago, today it cost me $25, money well spent. It was not until I had my photo taken for this blog did i realise i need a bit of a make over!! Went to have my picture taken today with my new camera when oops! it needed recharging. So blog Photo is going to be replaced tomorrow.
