where did that week go?

Okay...

Well, that was the shortest week ever... especially because I was totally convinced it was Monday yesterday! I hope nobody ever invents a 24 hour week, because I don't get enough accomplished in a 7 day week....any shorter and I may as well not even get out of bed.

Had a big push on yesterday to try to get a lot done on my doll .....but, as usual...still don't feel like I really squeezed as much out of my day as I should have. Think I only got about half the juice out of the lemon ...

I go from A to B and back again and still don't actually "do" ..... then I go to C for a bit and fold laundry or begin some bread and then .... go back to A and forget what I was doing before I left to get "something" but was instead sidetracked by the sound of the dryer still patiently tumbling every so often ... keeping things unwrinkled for as long as it takes me to remember I tossed anything in there..











I worked on her dainties yesterday.... please avert your eyes if you are under 18 ..... yeh, right.... nowadays that might be as young as ..oh, say.... 5 ?

A lot of hand stitching. Some 1/8" tea dyed silk ribbon for trim and bows...














another one for her midriff.... these gals had great bloomers....or pantaloons or pantalettes...as they are called in all the info I have seen. I saw a great page one day... but, forgot to bookmark it and voila... disappeared into the ether...never to be found again. The names seemed to indicate the length of the garment.... I'm thinking mine are between pantaloons and pantalettes, which seemed to be ankle length...














onward ..... must go play with some hair now ....

Yes, this week disappeared for me too. I kept thinking yesterday was Tuesday, and today, I think is Saturday. Must be something in the air!

Her "dainties" are looking beautiful!

I love the Sneak Preview of the lower part of your doll! The pantaloons are really nice and love the shoes. Can't wait to see more of her!

Abi said...

Love her undies, just gorgeous, she is coming on great. I have been just the same with time this week, walking from room to room, starting this, starting that, never finishing anything up. Going to write targets each day next week!

Her pantaloons are gorgeous!!!

Btw, my days go by in a very similar fashion.....A to B, then sidetracked, then sidetracked, then sidetracked....yep, it's just like a broken record. lol

Wipso said...

Wow. I am really impressed. You must have such patience. Beautiful. Keep up the good work. Can't wait to see the finished doll.

Those underwears are very beautiful! If I were a cat who wore underwears, that is what I would want to wear.

say it ain't snow BVee ... say it ain't snow.

Good grief ! We are having lovely warm, all the windows wide open, weather - overcast but warm. Not that I'm trying to rub it in or anything.
