I have been sent an award for honest blogging from http://annarosadesigns.blogspot.com/

thank you for that! Now i have to tell you 10 things about myself,
this is harder than i thought.
1. I Love sewing on the machine, and in particular making toys.
2. I love to make to give away, just because.
3. I have a saint of a husband because he puts up with my mess and he supports me in every way.
4. I have 3 beautiful grown up children that i am very proud of who they have turned out to be.
5. I have 2 house cats, (they are thoroughly spoilt).
6. I admit it! I AM a crazy old cat lady.
7. I cannot cook, no exaggeration here, ask my kids!
8. I love reading blogs and blogging myself, it gives me the link to the world i was so needing and a feeling of community.
9. I don't read newspapers or watch the news on T.V. ever.
10. I am absolutely hopeless with numbers, dates, time etc. Mention a sentence with numbers in it and my mind goes, blerrrrr.

Now comes the fun and the hard part. The fun part is nominating the fellow honest bloggers, and the hard part is only picking 10.


Actually this was much harder than i thought, Only 10? There is So many more blogs i admire.

The Black Sea Gentlemen

This is a brand new topic i have not blogged about at all, but i feel is an intrinsic part of me is music.
A few years ago i went to a Port Fairy Festival with a brand new friend (a friend now of about 6 years!) We met at the line in Spotlight!!! and i absolutely fell in love with this band Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen and loved the lyrics and the theatrics of their performance. 6 years later i am still lusting over seeing them again.
This was my first live performance and they affected me deeply.
What has made a profound influence on you?

Daughter Is Coming!

I know my daughter will be embarrassed at this but i just have to spill,
My daughter is coming for a quick visit tomorrow and i will have her here for only a couple of days and we will spend it Wedding Dress Shopping, Making Invitations, Talking and Making Decorations!!! I am so happy i am beside myself!!!
So Just remember to give your loved ones a call every now and then, don't wait for a special reason to call them, do it " Just Because".
I do have something to post about the celebrations but it will wait until she comes!


These are my two bots in the making, the fabric i am using is second hand wool coats, I love the textures and the colours and if you do what i do, and buy them from op shops when they have sales then you can get a myriad of lovely rich colours.
I did not have template plastic for the soles of the legs so like a lot of us we look at what we do have. I now have a folder that has holes in it! (another good thing to use is the plastic bottom on the green bags you can buy in the grocery stores).
For this pair of bots i will be using teddy bear joints and eyes for child safety But (a very rare thing for me, i will be making one with button joints to keep for myself!).
If you click on the picture and enlarge it you will find that the red one has a band going across it. This is because i have had to make a strip if fabric large enough to fit the pattern. Being a robot i am sure he won't mind!
