Random news is good news

Firstly!
I have Miss R White back,
nice and safe and she wasn't broken 
and she didn't lose her shoes or her Alice!



She and Sookie and Bad fairy 
all won a Blue Ribbon each.
( I feel like such a show pony!)
and I was given a check
 for the princely amount of 
Nine Dollars!
(that's about five quid, give or take)
.
and, as soon as I get a chance,
 I'm going to sit down and try it.


Thirdly,
For those of you following 
Sarah Beare 's blog 
and her journey
to get her Twelvemo artist dolls
made in China.
you might be interested to know that
Sarah is having a 
Giveaway!



Sign up and you might win one of the

These are exquisitely beautiful figures
with neat poseable joints 
and an enigmatic face;
 works of art and heirlooms to treasure.
I'm a huge fan!

  5. Yeah! I'm glad they are back safe and sound:)

    I have a Knook now. I borrowed one. Sheesh...it is very difficult. I don't know if it's because I was taught to crochet left handed even though I'm right handed but the book confused me...left...right...eeek! I found lots of videos on YouTube though:)

    1. Thank you. You and me both!

      I'm hoping it's going to be ok because I can't crochet, either. I hope that means I don't have to 'unlearn' anything. Thank you for the YouTube hint.

  6. Happy to hear Miss R White returned safely from the fair, not even losing her shoes.

    I am still trying to find time to master crochet. Not ready to take up something new. Best wishes to you with that.

    1. Oh yes, I was thrilled to get her home.

      As for the Knook, I'm hoping that NOT knowing how to crochet will help me. I don't have to unlearn something.
