I have one more arm to go before I can begin assembling Frida! I am so excited. I’m enjoying the hand-sewing again (just like on my last Purl Bee project, the picture day tie). I finished the legs and the first arm last night while watching Beauty and the Beast with my sister.
We really needed to laugh and think of good times. This movie accomplishes both, we watched it together often when we were younger. The bulk of my family drama is coming to an end (hopefully). I’m looking forward to a time when I don’t have to worry what new piece of nonsense will pop up to drag my mood down.
The paints I have Frida resting on just arrived today. I love looking at them all new and perfect, but I am anxious to try them out. That will have to wait until the children are asleep. They are distracted right now playing with the new markers I bought for them, a box of 64 they are amazed, especially since they had previously been banned. Markers are messy….they may have been a stupid purchase thinking on it now. Anyway, I don’t think even markers will distract them enough to paint in the same room as them.
Before I go, another weird Frida happening. I go through phases where I decide that I’m done with writing. I am in one of those now. It turns out that the Purl Girl pattern is printed on the back of pages of a script that I wrote in college.
*These are the materials I’ll be working with today.
