All in a day :-)

As you saw yesterday I planned to tackle making my next order for a Mr Tumble doll.  

As they say..."all the best made plans...."





This is as far as he has got.  The basic doll is made but as yet he has no face, hair or shoes.  I managed to sew stripes on his trouser fabric, make up his trousers and make his top and bow tie.  But thats it!












What kept me? I hear you say.  Well, it was this lot coming through my door!  I had a steady flow of customers [one of which sat herself down for a 3/4 hour chat....not a problem though cos she needed my time more than I did].  I had yet another 2 more new customers amongst all that arrived and between them they managed to fill my 'to do' rail!  I now have 1058 customers!  Of course while I'm doing fittings I'm not sewing and Mr Tumble will now have to wait a day or two to be completed cos I have deadlines to keep with a lot of this other sewing.







We finished off the day with a visit to the cinema to see The King's speech.  If you haven't been yet then make it a must.  It's a brilliant film and well worth seeing.

I'm going to wait to see The King's speech on DVD I think but will probably do a cinema trip with the teens over half term - but they are also going with friends & having seen Black Swan, I'm not sure if there is anything else I'd like to see except for maybe Brighton Rock.

Oh I so want to see that film Annie! But its finding the time I suppose as we live a fair way from the cinema. So I guess that we will wait for the DVD now x

Mr Tumble looks amazing, my son would love him. Looks like you are busy at the moment. We went to see the Kings Speech and I quite agree it is incredible. Caro #60
