From top: Rothschild's, West African, Reticulated, Masai, Cape and Angolan . They vary only slightly in pattern/color but it was very interesting to learn this.
I've been making doll clothes lately too. Not that I make any money selling these, but just because I like them! A princess seamed 1893 gown. Maybe now that I've finally drafted some patterns that fit this doll, she may get a more complete wardrobe.
The weather has been brutally hot and humid this past week so I actually hid inside under the ceiling fan with a bit of...............hahhhhhhhhh, is it really true???????????CROSS-STITCH. A little Patriotic finish from "The Sampler Girl" and a start on "Quaker Friendship Sampler" by The Goode Huswife. I'm using Threadworx "Morning Garden" on 28 count cream linen.
During my breaks from stitching and admiring giraffes I made a little blueberry cake. Much more blueberries then cake in this one! I even ventured into the mysterious world of yeast dough. Barbara, I curse in your general direction for getting me hooked on this. Now my freezer is filled with little bags of pizza dough-balls. I had much better luck with the white flour variety then with the whole wheat. Can anyone explain this to me?
Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there!
