Tuesday Thoughts

I've been watching Drop Dead Diva on Netflix while working on the current doll.  Cute and funny--love the characters.

In an earlier post, I mentioned that the type of doll I'm currently making is a fairly quick one. However, if there is anything I'm good at, it is complicating things.   I've been working on the darn thing for about 5 days, and yesterday, I spent ALL day working on her.  From around 8:00 in the morning until around 10:00.   There were frequent breaks, but I the darn doll ate  my day.

Today, I'm taking a break from her and doing some straightening & putting stuff away as my work space is total chaos right now.  I'll work on her again this afternoon, but my butt still hurts from too much sitting yesterday.

I really, really want to see this:

While we were keeping Bryce Eleanor Sunday night, Amelia was throwing her annual Oscar Party.

That's Amelia in the front.

Our area was delighted, of course, with James Joyce's win.  We love our locals--and Joyce is definitely a Shreveport boy!


  1. I love Drop Dead Diva. And I watch netflix all the time as I work. I gave up paying for high dollar tv.

  2. lady hawthorne -- I just discovered Drop Dead Diva, and I love it!

  3. Yikes! I've been away from the blog so I apologize for the late post but I have to tell you that I went to the parade downtown and I GOT TO TOUCH THE OSCAR! So happy for those guys! I hope you made it down Ellerbe in enough time to see the trees! Wendy

  4. Hi, Wendy! Good for you! I would have liked to attend the parade to honor James Joyce, but wasn't able to make it. He spoke once at a teacher's workshop, and he was so funny, down-to-earth, and charming. It was at least 15 years ago, but I was so impressed.


Good to hear from you!
