Work in progress.

24 May 2007

That title is the story of my life - a work in progress.
This time though I'm talking about a new little doll.

I had to go into town today for the last session of the competitions, Kate was reciting a poem. After her fine effort I went quickly to the library to return some books, it was raining lightly and it was falling at a very acute angle. As I was about to dart across the road I heard a mother's voice drawing her child's attention to the most beautiful rainbow.

I looked too, it seemed so close I was tempted to head off in search of the gold pot at its end which I'm sure was just down near the Tamar River. But, instead, I was sensible and continued on to the library. The rainbow stayed with me though and when I got home I collected all my plain coloured fabrics together and started dressing my little doll.

She is going to have her own little quilt as well and when she is finished , if I like the look of her , I'll pop her in my Etsy shop. So if you want a little rainbow girl check my shop in a couple of days.
( sorry the pictures are not so good but the light was bad, it turned into a very wintery day)
