Finally finished.....

It's taking about 4 times as long to finsih anything lately. Hubs and I were up at the house until late last night up on scaffolding finishing off the last bit of insulation on the upper roof ceiling. I know, more insulation, when will it end?....not anytime soon because then it's the lower floor ceiling to be done. I can see light at the end of the tunnel though. The plasterers have done an amazing job so far and it is really starting to look like our home now.
Anyway, these pretty Kokeshi Dolls have finally been finished and are now in the shop.
A couple have already been given new homes, thanks to a couple of girls from my craft group for having birthdays recently. Can you spot one of them in the bottom of this photo? Hee hee, i think she liked hers! One was sickly, I hope she is OK.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Gorgeous work, Kathryn - and I'm sure the insulation is looking good, too - even if it's cutting into sewing time.

Annie looks VERY pleased, doesn't she?

Good to see that you've seen your win on my blog. Had a mad day and didn't get to email you earlier.
