I had intended to make some of the dolls from the patterns I bought earlier this week but in the end I decided to make the first project from the The Fat Quarters Club
Whilst I was busy sewing my doll my eldest daughter (who didn't go camping) decided to make something herself. She had a good look through this book pictured below and a rummage through my scrap box and then went away and made a doll.
Polly is a very weird and wonderful softie and she is very proud of her creation. We had a super relaxing sewing afternoon. This is what holidays are all about.
I'll leave you with a picture of my youngest sister playing one of our craziest games. See how many grapes you can fit into your mouth at one time!! Very immature I know but so, so funny. The record is held by my other sister who managed 16 grapes. You can only place the grape between your teeth and cheeks, not on your tongue. It's so funny and very hard to keep the grapes in your mouth once you start laughing. I'd recommend it for parties, it's gross but good fun.Well you've seen into my crazy world a little, now I'm off to knit......
(Apologies for the grainy pictures, my camera has gone camping so I'm relying on my mobile which just isn't the same.)
