She's finished, and................... as expected she's creepy as!
She looks a bit like a female Joker with pink hair.
We went away to a lovely island for a week, and it was there that I finished her.
|yes, she was very disappointed by the sign|
|about to have her wig attached|
|I had to make her a shawl to cover up the dreadful sewing that attached her puddle of limbs to her head|
I thought I would celebrate her conclusion by taking her for a wander to the beach.
Here she is on her first foray to the foreshore as a finally finished friendly doll.
|catching some rays, don't worry, she had sunscreen on|
|also, to be truthful, there were very few sunrays to be caught that day|
It was a very windy day when I took her to the beach, it had been raining for two days, and this was the first break in the rain we had got.
I was absolutely terrified someone would come upon me taking photos of a strange little crocheted doll on the beach and think that the strange little doll had a strange little owner!!
Luckily Fahlula and I had the beach to ourselves that day.
The whole week was extremely relaxing and so enjoyable. There was no internet.
We swam lots, relaxed lots, ate lots, read lots, and I crocheted a fair amount. Even the rain was nice as it forced us to stay in and do lots of the aforementioned activities
I call it my beach blanket as when I chose the colours, they reminded me of the colours of the sea and sand and trees.
I love the way you can see the shadows of the leaves of the lemon tree on the blanket.
Daughter No 2 picked me this flower, which perfectly matched the blanket.
One morning as I walked to the beach for my early morning walk, I saw this chap on the middle of the road!!

Are you still here?
Nice work persevering!!!.
So, on to the gratefulness, I am grateful that I was able to go away with the people I love to a beautiful place and relax and be very very happy!!
On a sad note, one of our dogs died whilst we were away. We had two Labradors, Sammy and Lucy, who I bought for my two eldest 7 years ago, and they have been part of our family since.
Sadly Sammy died whilst we were away. My son had stayed at home, and found her. It was very sad for all of us, most of all for Lucy, who lost her sister.
Anyhoo, it's lovely to be back, and I will leave you with daughter No 2's favourite song of the moment. She has quite sophisticated tastes in music, and despite having the full gamut of Wiggles, bananas in pajamas, and other assorted childrens soundtracks available to her, has very diverse music tastes.
This is her current fave.
She loves it, and so do I
See you later alligators
