I've been sewing quite madly here for a full two weeks now, and I think I'm almost done. Amongst the mass of new dolls piling up in boxes, and on my lounge are these babushkas which I am really happy with, they have been made from scraps and scraps alone!
The reason I'm so happy with them is that the first 5 or so that I started remain unfinished, I just couldn't get into the right babushka making mood, and the fabrics didn't work together so well. But after realigning my zen with walking and running, watching lots of Moving Wallpaper & Echo Beach (new fave tv shows), and perseverance I managed to pull it off-- thank goodness!
And the next peak is at this newish little critter, who is similar to my Spring Lamb, but about one tenth of the size! This little fella is smaller than a blinky, so I'm calling him and his siblings Little Lambs-- they are perfect baby sized friends! And they make me smile when I look at them...
I hope these pictures entice you to come to Finders Keepers if you can! I'm just hoping that I get a good look at all the other stalls... *fingers crossed*. The info about getting there can be found here-- please don't drive, parking is difficult, and it's really close to Redfern & Macdonaldtown Stations, and from Newtown itself. The stall map is here too, I'm in the foyer area right near the bar, and opposite Made 590.
Well I'd love to stay a while, but back to the grind I must go!
