I think I could speed up with practice ... but whether I'd want to take up peg doll making on a regular basis is another matter . The alacrity with which I shot out of the door to wander round town and have a beer on a sunny terrace probably answers that ( mind you , sunny or not , it was cold ) .
But it was fun to rummage around and see what I had that was tiny enough to decorate them with .... though rather alarming to realise that I'm still a Scot at heart . The Tartan Army football supporters' bunnet on Doll One was unintentional .... I had been aiming for a little Gallic beret .
And , on a more cultural level , the Judi Dench book is good , I'm enjoying it , though her sheer niceness is chastening to those of us who are less so . The C.Ds are all good , including an odd handful picked up in the library . Just one thing : If you ever have the opportunity to listen to the Willie Nelson c.d. , "Naked Willie" , be sure to be sitting down before his rendition of "Bring Me Sunshine" . If you happen to be standing in the kitchen , chopping an onion , it might take you by surprise , you might laugh till you hiccup and crafting fingers could be at risk .
