Wouldn't it be Luverly!
I'm sitting in front of my heater all alone, thinking and knitting and drinking ginger tea, feeling like Eliza Dolittle, and wishing I had someone's head resting on my knee, instead of watching a horror film in the next room!
I found a beautiful printed velveteen skirt for $3, which was so long I was able to make two skirts from it, one a-line, the other gathered into a waistband.
But now that I look at the photo, people will probably think I'm just wearing the same skirt!
And I have yet to figure out what shape an elephant is.
I was trying to make an elephant 'blocker' in classic derby stance, but without the orange..
She looks like this, resting on her trunk because I've made her arms too little! I don't know what to do with her, I haven't the heart to tell her she's not going skating anymore!
My days have a bit of screaming, a bit of cooking, a bit of crafting, a ^*@# load of dishes and sometimes a dash of rollerskating!
I am SCREAMSTRESS, and I live in a usually messy and always noisy house with my husband the Panda, and my three spawn, 5yr old Big S, and 3yr old twins, Little S and Spawnette. Oh, and I couldn't stay sane without the help of my trusty sidekick THE WHITE CLOUD (mum).
