Well I have finally got round to re rooting some more of Ashlyn's hair. I was off ill for the last two days of last week and had no energy to move about so was just sitting, with my head cold, so spent some time when I was feeling a little better on the re root.
I have done most of the front and crown of her head but thought I would show you all the holes still left to fill.
On this side you can see close to where the hairs been done a group of tiny holes all on top of each other! That's what quite a few places on her head are like especially at the front! It means there are so many extra holes to fill but it's finally getting less, just have to keep doing it each evening because when I stop I don't go back for a couple of months and this girl would like to get home by the end of April at the latest!
This photo shows her hair down.
I do think this colour hair suits her eye colour , a lovely contrast.
You can see here that the holes are in almost oval lines across her head at the top, don't know if that's normal? But I think it's going to help with how I want her hair to look when I finish.
Thought I would add this photo of how far I was before this go.So have had a good push forward.
Ashlyn says Hi to her Mum .
Next up is the blankets! If you remember when I was cleaning up the Sasha room ( and No It's not done yet ) I came across some wool that I decided to make into blankets , then decided that they had to blend and went off and ordered some wool to finish the one I wanted as a Baby blanket, totally defeating the object of making up the blanket in the first place!!
Well I have finished one, well almost just need to finish the edge.
I was making it in the Splash wool that changes colour as you work it.
I had enough wool when I started to do up to the middle pink but then bought more to carry on.
So this pram/ pushchair blanket is nearly finished I just need to finish the edge completely. Well When I went to order the extra wool , it was cheaper postage wise as you all know to order several balls together and well there were many different combinations of colour in the splash and it was also being discontinued in the paler colours so I ordered a few balls.....
some how I landed up with nine balls.... these are the one's I have not yet used....well sort of because I decided that I would have to make TWO blankets, the first original one and then....
this one...... which I started as it's easier to take to work to work on before I start every morning.
I think these will make a lovely second blanket.
Somehow this extra unrelated ball of wool fell into my basket when I was ordering the others, Okay I confess I just loved the colour and I am sure I can make something nice from it for the Sasha's or Gregors and it's only one ball....
but I am wondering about this lovely block of pink,brown and golden yellow, it's from the only ball of the new wool that I bought and I am loving that deep warm combo, maybe I should buy a few more balls of just this colourway for another blanket? .........
Oh and I have not one but two dolls being held over the weekend by Parcel Force!! The tracking said that late on Friday night they'd been put on a lorry for delivery. Great thought I , I'll have them Saturday BUT NO that's too simple when I phoned to check delivery would be Saturday , they are for delivery Monday!! So I offer to come and collect them..BUT NO they have to TRY to be delivered before you are allowed to collect!! and these dolls were sent by 24 EXPRESS... sitting on a lorry for the weekend does not sound like EXPRESS delivery to me!!!
