I seem to have given up blogging of late and almost a month has gone by, during which time Spring has been springing.
But I’m glad to say I have completed my monthly goal of adding all the TAST stitches to date into my fanTASTichia picture.
Lots of these stitches are new to me and I plan to keep going with this, at least for the first twenty stitches or so although I still don’t know what it will end up looking like!
Apart from that, I have been knitting…
And, after much trial and error, I have unvented a new improved way to attach heads to cloth dolls and a hair technique to avoid the stumpy, thick plaits/braids that rag dolls tend to have. When I get time, I’ll put up a tute in case anyone wants to try it.
I have also been outside a lot, mainly bramble clearing and weeding, but I haven’t taken photos of that! I did manage to get some pictures of a pair of geese who visited us one morning though and some on a walk with Poppy..
My most exciting news is that we are on the verge of having ‘real’ internet. After literally years of being promised more than a very inconsistent -1mb (owing apparently to long copper lengths, which has made providing us with the infrastructure for a reliable service ‘uneconomical for the public purse’) we have a green cabinet installed along the road which, if what they say is true, will deliver fibre broadband. I can hardly imagine what it will like – not watching a spinning disk and waiting for things to time out and resetting the router…
If you are a mother in the UK, I wish you a Happy Mothers day! If not I wish you a happy day anyway :)
