Today is grey and cold and wet. Yesterday was brilliant. Warm and sunny, and as I was hanging the washing out I was thinking how it is only about 5-6 weeks until Spring. Spring! And how really, our winters are very mild and bearable.
But... I woke up this morning to NO HOT WATER! What a miserable start to the day. Thankfully it is back on now. We came in from playcentre, I put Lucy down for a nap and had the longest, hottest shower to try and warm up. I am now shut in my studio with the heater on high whilst finishing off some dolls. It is so hard hand sewing when your fingers are numb!!
On another note... Do you like polka-dots? It has never occured to me that there are people in the world that don't like polka-dots. I love polkadots and have quite a vast range of polka-dot fabrics and paper ephemera. I was sewing something the other day, and asked Isabella what she thought...
Isabella: It's ok, but I don't like the spotty pattern...
Me: The polka-dots? How can you not like polka-dots?
Isabella: I just don't.
Me: How about this one with pink polka-dots?
Me: How about this blue spotty one...??
Isabella: No. I don't like spots.
Me: At all???
Isabella: No, not at all. Can you please make me one with this butterfly/flowery/sparkly....
Lesson to self: Not everyone in the world likes polka-dots!
