Thanks for all your joy about Great Dixter, it really was a lovely day. Lately I have been sewing again, and once I start it makes me wonder why I avoid it so often, it makes me so happy. This week I finally started to use some of that vintage lace that was so kindly given to me by Liz. A dish full of tiny lavender bags and one little doll have appeared.She is in the final stages now, only really missing a face, but not wanting to ruin her, I wonder if she should stay as she is? Quiet and mysterious. I think I will adjust my template on the next one, making the arms and legs more slender. Now looking forward to the weekend to sew her a sister.
