This bit of colour is for Chris, with all her recent snow.
Crafts: I'm putting the red paint on the back of the wooden bowl, and making a 'blank doll' for the shop, which will have hair, but otherwise will be just the muslin body. She will be an alteration on the pattern I drew for 'Angie.' Tonight, I am sewing a white muslin elephant as well as the doll body. I'm not sure whether to paint, embroider, bead, or just leave the elephant plain (with eyes and a tail, at least)... I have to sew his ears on and he is ready for one of the above treatments.
Knitting: I hope the first purple sock will get finshed this weekend -- there is just so much going on, it is in my bag and has been stalled since last Saturday.
