Clairey had a little lamb

The stock is bubbling on the stove.
I have some new shoes on my feet (a once a year event!).

I am excited because tonight is the first episode of the new Doctor Who.

Right now Amelia is having a nap (or at least she is lying very very quietly listening to her CD of the beautifully spoken Kate Winslet reading “The Folk of the Faraway Tree” – thanks to Lucinda for the idea!) so I have a little bit of time to work a little bit more in my studio…

I spent a little time yesterday on my lamb for Month of Softies. I think her eyes are a little high for it to be an exact match to my sketch… and the mouth and nose are a little big… but I think it still has some of the original character…

I wish I was being a bit more prolific with my sewing at the moment. I have such a huge pile of pears cut out and ready to sew, but there are a few other things going on. I got the proofs back for the prints for my show and I am blown away by how amazing these prints are. I am used to print outs being a bit of a compromise but these are exact replicas of what I see on my screen. I can’t wait to see how they look printed out at actual size.

    Oooh, thanks for the the Folk of the Faraway Tree cd thought, hopefully I can find it for my son who would spend an hour playing his Gameboy, if I let him.
    When I was teaching I would give my kids a ball of clay to sculp with while they were listening to a story on cd.

    Oskar and I built a Tardis today along with a shoe box k9 so we’re all ready for tonight’s Dr Who.
    Does Phil have any idea who Dr Who is? Maybe he can sit down to watch some Beachcomers instead?

    I love the folks of the faraway tree, that was one of my favourites when I was small. Brooke is now upstairs either laying down and listening to her nursery rhyme CD or having a nap – I don’t really mind which..

    the new doctor who is excellent – don’t you think? I love that actor, he was in the recent show about the return of christ – did you see that on ABC?

    The new Doctor Who is absolutely terrible!!
    I hope you aren’t too disappointed by it. One episode was painful enough for me!

    ditto, where did you get the faraway tree cd? this sounds great!

  13. leetusdesigns@ozemail.com.au

    Yes..where did you get that CD??? I LOVE that Enid Blyton series and have the books for when my babies are old enough. But a CD would be great. Please can we see your artwork once your exhibition is done. Us Sydney siders would appreciate it. And due to the responses I think you could easily give it all up and be the “pear lady”. You could sell a tonne of the things!!!
    PS put me down for three..hehe

    I got both the Folk of the Faraway Tree and The Magic Faraway Tree CDs at the ABC shop – they were quite expensive though – about $40 – $50 each. There are four cds in each box set. Amelia loves them!

    I had no idea that Kate Winslet read The Folk in the Faraway Tree. That was one of my favorite stories when I was little, I’ll have to see if I can track that down, now. 🙂
    I hope your show goes well!
