The Headless Doll - poor thing
No modesty here, had to show the bloomers
And here is my hand holding the head up to the neck

No crafting for the past few weeks and boy am I feeling it, I need to get back to that sewing machine very soon and make something or finish something would be good. I have started a neat stitchery by Angels in Disguise and am loving doing it, its so much fun and not hard to do at all, so hope to have some pictures to share with everyone after the weekend.

I have two internet friends whose birthdays are one day apart this month... Hmm Internet friends, friends I have never met in person but friends nontheless who I talk to every day without fail and I cannot imagine not talking to these girls (and all my internet friends) We share laughs, tears, birthdays, photos of our family and crafts, in fact we share our lives. So I have sent of two parcels today, one to America to Karen M whose birthday is 21 September so I hope it gets there in time for her to open on the day and the other to a friend I have here in New Zealand whose birthday is 22nd September. This friend is called Lily (but her real name is Sharon) and she is a very special friend even though we have never met. We have found in talking that our lives have had certain parallels outside of having the same name. Lily has helped me to learn about sewing techniques, fabrics, all sorts of neat new products and just being my cheerleader extraordinaire. We have a special connection I think, if thats the word, its a hard one to put into words but I thank you Lily for your special friendship and am grateful that we connected over the net, you have made my life all the richer for knowing you.

These two pics are of the body and one leg all stuffed - shes only pinned together at this stage but wanted to show some progress
I have popped a wee bit of hair onto the head in this pic just to show how much of a difference it makes once some hair goes on. I doubt this will be the hair that I use, but I had some cut off so plonked it on for the pic ......
