Started off well in the afternoon. This pattern
came to me late last year from the lovely Maria. Now I am not a fan of dolls - something about the eyes gives me the creeps - but these don't have eyes! And they really appealed to me. Unable to source a copy of the pattern Maria very kindly sent me hers and I shall be passing it on to someone else once I have finished with it.
So, I had started cutting out the pieces on Thursday, so I soon finished that job
and so out with the machine and on to sewing together the arms, legs and bodies. Which was soon accomplished.
Then came the phone call that I had been expecting - my Mother died peacefully early in the afternoon. She had a major hip operation at the beginning of June and moved into a care home towards the end of the month. But she never really picked up although bravely made it through Dad's funeral. They spent 69 married years together and now they are reunited.
Mum's 90th earlier this year
So thank you dear friends for keeping me company yesterday evening.
