Ladies who lounge around in the sun!!

Good evening

How's your week been? Mine went downhill after Monday - Tuesday night I started with a migraine which really took hold. Couldn't shift it yesterday so I spent that mainly asleep, only waking to go to big son's parents evening at school. Finally after a dose of  the strong tablets I have I slept it off last night and woke this morning feeling much better. It means I am behind with my making schedule - is looking like I'll finish 8 raggies by the weekend rather than my original plan of 10. I'll share them between the shop and my stall. That leaves next week as final making week - really only a few bits left to get sorted and then the fun task of labelling begins.

Anyhow - less waffle and more pics. I treated my girls to something comfy to sit on - a vintage Sindy sofa set via ebay - they seemed to like it this afternoon when we were out in the sunshine;


Nos 2-6




My little sofa set - the boys think I've finally lost it buying these - have given up trying to explain they are for display purposes only!

When I've had a break from sewing this week, I've been engrossed in this book I borrowed from a friend - it is really a good read and even better lots of it is set on my part of the Suffolk coast so I can recognise the locations and dream of owning my own gypsy wagon.


Lastly for tonight, what would blogland be without a swap or two going on. I've already signed up for and am well on the way with the button swap. I saw this one on a favourite blog this morning and couldn't resist it - I mean who can resist the lure of a charity shop or two?


Right back to more raggy sewing - am working on Nos 7 & 8 at the moment - hopefully they'll be ready for photographing and sharing with you soon.

Until the next time.

Oh I love your raggies! I want the purple one, shes adorable! I tried to comment on your post with the boy raggy and it disappeared. I think its when blogger was playing games. I would love some boy raggies too. I really can never tire of your raggies, they are fabulous!
Happy sewing and have a lovely weekend!

Your girls look great on the sofa - who would begrudge them somewhere to sit?

Brilliant dollies, I love 'em, such grogeous bright colours. I think you have done well to make eight! I am glad you feel better. I have never had a migraine, but they sound horrific. Hope you have more sunny days. x

Sorry to hear about the horrible migraine! That sofa took me back too, I had that very one, I made cushions for it out of Nannas cut up hankies and stuffed them with cotton wool.
Raggies are fab, your poor fingers must be sore!

I love your raggies - and their sofa. In fact, I wonder if I could get it in an adult size, that would be even better!

i've read that book and passed it on to an old essex chum, who is also enjoying it-- my mum reminds me of mine, except my mum was married.
but she loved the simple life, the great outdoors and owns a wonderful gypsy wagon ;0)x

The dolls are looking wonderful and how lucky they are to have a real Sindy sofa!

Lakota [Faith Hope and Charity Shopping] said...

Your dolls are so sweet and look great on the sofa - staging is so important. I'm certain you'll sell out. Glad the migraine is better - I suffered for a while and they are no fun at all.

Thanks for mentioning the swap - am quite excited now!
