Sort of hard to tell from this first photo due to scale but – never fear – this is not the sort of thing I wear about the house during lockdown (or any time) to entertain Mr. Tialys and the various deliverers of parcels to my door.
Although, if that’s your thing, I won’t judge you.
Another sewing lesson took place where Miss Tialys the Younger pretends she wants to learn to sew but, in reality, she just wants clothes for her ‘niche’ doll collection and so she sits and watches me do it all or, at least pretends to. In our last session she actually fell asleep.
I, on the other hand, was bravely struggling with teeny pattern pieces and fairly minimal instructions (no drawings, only writing 😲) but actually quite enjoying myself.
Everyone’s a critic, apparently, and she felt qualified to tell me that I’d put the ears on too close together
Although I was actually quite chuffed with it.
WARNING: Disturbing image coming up.
In fact, I started to quite get into the whole playing with dolls thing by the end of it and my model obliged with a couple of poses.
As I’ve said before – I’m a teddy bear person myself (if anything) and have quite a collection of artist bears (from years ago) which has taken over the smallest of the small bedrooms much to Mr. T’s annoyance as he actually put the shelf up in there for books.
I cheered him up with this one though. An antique French bear too big to fit on the shelf but who consented to wearing the leather plague mask made by Mr. T. before such things were no longer a joke. 😷
Time to put the toys away now and do something more useful.
The things we get up to in lockdown!
