It’s 1AM and I can’t sleep. The irony of pregnancy, I can’t sleep yet I am so, so tired.
Today we went to the Mill Bay Family fair. It was cute. A few of those bouncy castle types of rides and some stalls. The *big* event though was the fire truck..that had it’s ladder fully extended! Ben was awe struck. It was hilarious to see all the teenage girls just hanging around all the hunky young firefighters. Lol, I’m glad I’m not 18.
I’m working on 3 large dolls for a customers order right now. It’s wonderful, I’m doing an African American, an Asian doll and one to look like their Filipino nanny. Lots of fun with the different types of hair I can do. I’ve got 2 other 14″ in the works as well for sale up on Natural Pod. John was busy tonight making all the heads. He is a master headmaker, ther is no way I have the stregnth to make them that tight. I honestly think that my dolls really progressed once he started making the heads for me. He’s even mentioned a few times that he may be up for ‘machining’..haha this is his man term for sewing. I am using some scraps of organic fabrics to make the new baby’s washclothes and I think I’m going to ask him to serge the ends. Nice and easy and a simple square, just to get him used to the machine. I took a sewing class years ago that a man was one of my classmates. He loved the serger because it was ‘like, the power tool of sewing’. I think this will be a good intro for John.
Still obsessing on Lost. We are almost through Season 2, thank God! I just can’t stop watching it. I have to admit though, before I came online and blogged, I went and read about 5 episodes worth of spoilers ahead of where we currently are. I’m so lame! I just have to know about the ‘Others’!
