Late as usual.

Belated mothers day greetings. I must be the last one on blogland to show my lovely cards and gifts, i had 3 plants, some lovely body butter, wrinkle cream, i don't know what they're trying to tell me? I had a lovely scarf off Jack, Tom & Maisy we also went out for Sunday lunch which was lovely, no cooking Yippee! We have booked our holiday in Suffolk and not abroad, to try and help our flagging economy it looks ver picturesque so if any one knows of some nice places to visit in that area it would be much apprecitated. With the nice weather last week was spent on the back garden doing lots of tidying up and planting seeds, i dug up some carrots and this is what i found some very strange shapes indeed, now i know if you put manure in the soil this is what happens but i have one plot where i put carrots with no manure so i don't have a clue why they are like this i will have to see what happens with the next crop. I have done some sewing i made this lovely rag doll with an embroidered dress she was really easy to do, l've also made some easter things which i will show you soon and i have nearly finished Tabetha's quilt, i have also been to a couple of car boots where i found a lovey babys crib, i love old cribs and if i had a bigger house i would buy more, somebodys already got their eye on it when it is finished, i also bought a new corner unit for the lounge and also this litlle pink horse for Jess it also plays music as she rides up and down on it and an excercise bike for me. Best Wishes Pat. x x

Your ragdoll is fantastic!! Did you embroider the dress too?
Glad you had a lovely mother's day. Mine was spent wallpapering, and it is still not finished, as Callum & I have had a stomach bug, so I have stayed out of the way. It has been a very busy few weeks, and I am going over to Dave's this weekend to have a quiet, restful weekend. Aaahhh bliss!!!
Aaliyah has that little horse, I bought it for one of her Christmas pressies, she loves that musical button!!
I really don't know what to say about those carrots......!!!!! lol !!!!!

Have a lovely week, and it's good to hear from you again!!

Hi Pat

Lovely Mothers day gifts! You have been busy, and those carrots looks like the aliens have landed! lol.

I looove your rag doll. I make dolls too, from my own patterns but have been wanting to make a more rounded head doll for ages. I do have picture of the last doll I made on my first ever post and she was an attempt to make her more round headed, but attaching her head to her neck was a nightmare! (it was for my sil friend so i was concious of getting it right) Did you make your own pattern for her?
The dress is so beautiful as well. Well done.

What strange carrots! The rag doll is great. I once made one from a kit from a company called Clothkits, it was really nice but I gave it away when she no longer played with it. I now regret that. I like the crib. Have a lovely weekend.
