see J in the top-middle, climbing up the hill.
J is set on having our house on a 'south-facing slope' to catch most of the sun in the winter. He is very into natural architecture with the proper eaves and directions etc etc. (to keep the sun out in the summer) I'll leave him to be the brains of the house. I'll try hard to help out with the 'heart.'
And, I can't do a Blast from the Past like Chris, at least not right now, so here is my windblown hair after riding out to the land and back on a four-wheeler. J says he likes it this way. I say it's just messy ;o)
I finished the doll last night. She isn't the one in the 'preview' from yesterday, but she didn't start out her life as a doll, either. I often fall back to this type of head and body when I can't get a new pattern to work out properly. This 'saves' some pieces that would otherwise be wasted. Wasting hand-sewn pieces is not fun!
Every time I 'prototype' a pattern, I use dark thread. This helps me see where the cloth is pulled on the most, and if I need to make changes in the construction next time around.
