Madeline's New Dress and a Wee Doggy
Then over the past few nights, I've also been stitching up this little doggy. He's to be a rainy day present for Frederique sometime. The little bone comes out of his pocket.
I must say I am enjoying learning to sew. I don't know that I will ever master it, but I am actually enjoying not being brilliant at it too, letting myself make mistakes, since I've always been a bit of an over-achiever, reluctant to take on things that I'm not very good at.
The sun has been out in Melbourne, the sky has been astonishingly blue. Days that say, 'Winter doesn't last forever.' Blossoms are unfurling, flowers are poking through. It's almost spring, and when spring comes, Miss Una Petunia, Una Balloona, Una the Tuna, will be one year old. Time, like the birds in my expansive cornflower sky, flies.
