My other sewer
It has to come undone.


This week past was Ekka week (the Royal Agricultural Show) here in Brisbane.  I have kept away because I didn't want to go into those crowds.  There is still lots of Covid around and most of my family have been coming down with it.  So, except for one trip to meet with my patchwork group, where we all wear masks and everyone does a RAT test before they go,  my days are rather ordinary.  Top of the list is home-schooling, which along with preparing meals, doing household tasks and walking the dog seem to fill most of my days.  But, although I can't use my sewing machine I can knit, so, I have a little bundle of Issie Dolls to finish.

This isn't very challenging but it does keep the hands busy and the pain in my arms and legs isn't too good just at the moment, but this activity keeps the muscles working.

This little bundle are supposed to look like writting on a black board, (chalk board), they still have to be stuffed.

The next bundle use woollen fabric.  I don't use woollen fabric but I did make a skirt this year and I have some pieces left over so they will all have to be made from that.  I do have a small bundle of woollen felt in the stash as well that I can use for the applique but I think I will change these.  Then again, I might make them as is.  These ones have sparked some ideas to make some that reflect my environment.

I also have a destination for the pin cushions and the dolls.  My friend Kay is having a stall to raise money for research into Cystic Fibrosis so all of these pieces can go to that. 


The other thing I am thinking about is Xmas.

You're certainly putting together a lot of stock for your friend's stall!

Yes, I have to make more baskets to hold it all.
