Yesterday evening ended very late as I challenged myself to get my hand stitching done before I could go to bed. Not surprisingly, little was done while the Conchords were on as I was watching the tv and not my hands - v. important while drawing! :)
Before the stitching came the Black Apple update. I had kinda hoped to grab a Helpful Hannah doll but they were gone in a click literally! I'm not too disappointed as
1. I expected the quickness of clickiness as I have snatched in many an update before and
2. because one such snatch last year was a doll, whom I have not yet shared...
...well now I will. Ain't she a cutie?
She is one of the lucky ones who got to sit behind Emily and Martha Stewart as they made the dolls. (you can spot her in the video here). Generally I don't buy into that reality tv celebrity thing, but I am crazy happy to have my own little celeb sitting on my shelf :)
Her picture was found in during yesterday's photo sort (I'm really not surprised at the computer's grumpiness as there is a lot to be sorted/deleted)
And from cute to not-so...
...incredibly ugly in fact! (but thats ok as Nigella said they would be)
Before stitching, updates and telly came the ping! My mini meatloaf was cooked, chilled and made a tasty lunch. I've never tasted meatloaf before and it was fun to try something new... especially in a tiny picnic style. At the weekend I cooked burritos at home for the first time too - fresh salsa, guacamole and all. I mainly followed this recipe with a couple of extras chucked in.
I didn't take any photos but I do have a burrito doodle from my sketchbook.
I miss drawing food with faces...
Well, I think I've rambled enough now...
Enjoy your evenings!
