Oh, I've been wanting to make one of those half doll pin cushions. I haven't gotten my copy of the magazine yet. (I think subscribers ought to get their copies before the shops do, but that's a whole other discussion). Anyway, I was tempted. Then in the latest newsletter from the Attic, they said they were going to put together a kit of the linen, threads and other stuff needed to make this half doll. Oh boy, I'm a goner. I knew that Brier Rose makes the half dolls. There will probably be a run on the dolls when people get their copy of the magazine. So I ordered two half dolls. The one I have been wanting to make for a while, a small Dutch doll, and the magazine one but in in the colors I want (blue). It will take a while to get here. But in the meantime I'm looking for my magazine any day now.
When I checked back on the page, there was yet again another half doll design posted. Oh, I like that one too! There is also a little mini chatelaine that goes at the doll's waist. How cute!
I finished the last little tag from the Cottage Conservatory "Afterthoughts".
Then I went looking for some gold metal thread so I could get back to working on Hampton Court. I didn't find it yet but I ran across two more kits from my trip to Indy. Yes, I started one.
It is very fun to do bargello. (It is also very frustrating when you mess it up). It has tulips on it. Cool.
