I want a new toy, oh ee oh

Make that two toys. I bought these today, and I plan to use them tomorrow. I wonder if they'll change my life? I do find cutting out tedious.

Start your engines...

OK, here's a few of contenders (understanding that my machine is still buried under scales, old pillows, stray styrofoam etc etc... I think she doth protest too much)

and then some Old Faithfuls:

What do you think o' them apples, eh eh eh?

*sigh* when best laid plans...

OK, so the flea market I ordered is sadly out of stock:

So I shall have this one instead! She won't be chevroned, but I am sure I will find something to do with her. I have been lusting after green things lately after all...

Its curtains for me!

Hoorah eBay lady, here is my yards 'n' yards (well, it did come from the USA) of nice heavy mambo barkcloth - a little rustier in person, but since the room in which they are going - nay, even the windowdoors they are covering - is not yet complete, I can build my decor around them.

Now to contemplate just what curtainage / blindage / panelage to make them into... shall have to seriously ponder these important isssewwws.

Le Parisienne

Here she is in the warm winter sunshine. I couldn't wrangle a poodle for the photo session, but she does warrant a poodle.
I don't think I'll make her in the blue floral now, I think the blue floral demands more of a party frock. First (and perhaps only) contender for the Fifties Fair.
