we have a new weather warning – heat!

 the snow is melting and the rivers are flooding – how quickly things can change

Rosie has finally taken off her sweater

but she felt a little bit exposed so we created some underwear

a visit to the Hittys and some design instructions from an expert

et voila!

some bloomers that fit a bear – with crocheted silk trim

and a mother-of-pearl button

that design problem solved she now wants overalls

still stitching “the scroll”

I’ve come to think of this as doodling with needle and thread

the small scissors are ones I use every day – good tools are so important

the fabric is a small scrap and can only be cut in 25″ lengths – the tree covers the join

and I’ve been catsitting the neighbour’s cat so Patti made an appearance

now out to water the garden before it gets too hot

    Rosie looks lovely but what a tyrant she is! High maintenance that small bear! I love your doodling. We have gone from very hot (by our standards) to chilly and very wet. It never seems to be ‘just right’!

      Sue – and the boy bears let her get away with it. She keeps us on our toes! Our weather is hovering in the low 30’s and that is HOT for us but the ocean winds will be back and then we’ll cool down.

    Excellent drawers for Rosie – now the Quimper Hittys want silk trim…sigh! I love your doodling.

      Kjerstin – all the materials are from ‘the stash”, I didn’t have any fine lace and the silk was thrums – it is a pain to crochet with short lengths. I’ve always been a doodler, it is great fun with needle and thread. Rosie is very pleased with her new knickers and thanks to you they fit nicely.
