The Boss

 This tub of pure enjoyment has arrived at my house today and I want nothing more than to sit and slowly sort and clean and ooh and ahh over every tiny treasure

but the Boss has said i cannot go near them until I have completed a whole month of bookwork (being 2 and half months behind).

I tell you, I'll be setting the land speed record for excel this morning !

Excuse me,

 I've just popped in the clear the cobwebs and collect the mail that has piled up inside the door. 

There's been a lot going on in the world since I last popped in hasn't there? I'm still around, flogging my wares on the internets and sewing new friends.

This is Henry. He is the biggest pattern I have ever written. There are about 50 pattern pieces and eleventy million diagrams. 

He is the same size as Tilly and Ginger and Addie so the combined wardrobes are huge.

Next on the list is a sheep. The sheep is 99% done but then..... there is something just not quite working so I'm going to start again today and keep the bits that are ok and ditch the rest.

The ears are too big and the legs are too long. I think the face needs a little bit more shape as well. 
My initial plan was a little knitted cardigan but then I switched to a skirt and now i have no idea. It seems a shame to cover up that lovely wooliness.
