Welcome to any new readers who found their way here from Attic24, I haven’t had so many views in a long time! I hope you’ll stay a while.
I had a pre-craft fair meltdown this weekend, the usual jitters where I convince myself that nobody will want to buy my stuff, I’m a talentless hack etc. Lots of listless lolling around and dramatic sighing. I had a total lack of ideas all of a sudden and eventually decided rather than lying there sighing and being generally a pain in the butt I would make something for myself. I picked something off my very long list of bookmarked tutorials and after a lot of swearing and some more dramatic sighing due to bad fabric choices (I had to make 7 appendages because they kept ripping) here she is:
Her name is Poppy and her legs are slightly different lengths, her arms are different heights and the closing seam on her head looks like a first year medical student had at her but she’s all mine and I love her. She really was a lot of fun to make and when we buy a house she’ll go on my sewing room shelves and eventually the sewing room will become a nursery so really she’s for our future child. I have an appointment tomorrow morning at the crack of dawn with a dietician for fertility weight loss. Someone rang last night to remind me of the appointment which was nice considering I had never been told I had one! On Monday I rang a number to confirm I wanted an appointment and was told there was a waiting list and an appointment would be made for me. The man who rang to remind me of this appointment I didn’t know I had couldn’t tell me who it is with and wasn’t sure where in the hospital (one I have not been to since I was 9) it is so tomorrow morning sounds like it will be fun. Then I have to get a bus, train and another bus home. In the rain. I have a motto “It’s all for a baby” which gets me through things like this and makes it easier to forgo chocolate cake but sometimes it’s said through gritted teeth!
