The temperature today was about 29 C with a humidex of 39C. HOT!

Then it started to rain in buckets. When the rain stopped for a few minutes the water steamed off the asphalt road. I decided that it was a good day to stay inside with the air conditioning on....and sew:) .

I made a start on the rag doll. Body, arms and legs. Tomorrow I will stuff her and give her some boots. I'm going to paint them on. I'm thinking black but I also like the idea of red boots. It all depends on what I find in my stash for her clothing.

Take care :)


  1. Thank goodness you have air con!
    It’s been hotter than usual here (UK) but not as hot as 29° ..... yet! Today it was around 23 or 24°
    You’ve made a great start on your doll.
    Red or black would look good.

    1. Today so far it is actually bearable heat wise but it's still early :)

  2. Looking forward to seeing this doll take shape. Hugs Mrs A.

  3. I'm with you when it comes to red boots - I love red shoes and often say my middle name should have been Dorothy!

    1. I ended up going with black legs rather than white. The next doll will definitely have red boots.


If you leave a comment and I don't respond it's because I didn't get an email notice. I don't know why this happens and I apologize in advance as I love to hear from you:)
