I think its kinda cute. And I must point out that the hem isn't squint, the doll is propped up squint. Honest! It's lined too... As you can no doubt tell, I'm rather pleased with it!
I did have the WORST cataplexy episode so far, for me anyway, on Friday. (Cataplexy - secondary condition that sometimes but not always accompanies Narcolepsy, means sudden loss of muscle control due to change in emotion.) I lost control over my eyes so my sight went, my face went, arms, hands, absolutely everything. I tried to fight it, but it just got worse and worse. Thankfully I was sat down so no injury or anything, but my head dropped at such an angle that I couldn't breathe and I panicked. I managed to control it for a second or two which was just enough to move my head enough to breathe again, but ultimately the cataplexy took over again and I was completely paralysed for 5 minutes. Not long, but it felt like forever to me.
So what on earth caused it? Little Miss Ellie cat, that's what. Or who. You see, I'd brought a cereal box upstairs to use to make a template. Buy cardboard? Nah... Recycle ;-) Anyway. I'm sat at one end of the bed quietly reading blogs, and cereal box is at the bottom of the bed. After getting her fill of attention from me, Ellie cat decided to explore the cereal box. Cats seem to like cardboard. Cats seem to like boxes. Score!
So, she had a good sniff, then had a closer sniff, then attempted to sniff a bit further into the box. Little Miss Ellie cat got stuck in the box. Not entirely happy about being stuck in the box she skooshed backwards, and, thinking that oughta do it she sat down and lifted her head... With the cereal box still on it. Ellie cat now had a cereal box for a head. She tried to shake it off. I just saw a cat body with a cereal box for a head, and this cereal box was shaking its head at me... I think the weight of it maybe caught her out cos next thing I see is her tipping over onto her ass with her back legs going up in the air... Turns out the edge of the bed is not the place to do that Ellie cat... Cue slow motion cat with cereal box for head and back legs in the air ever so slowly slip off the end of the bed, ass first....

And I got it basted tonight.
This week I shall be attempting some hand quilting... And doll needs shoes... And I have a quilt top I started last week to get on with... And hopefully I'll manage to settle on a selection of fabric for the Lilys Quilts QAL. Lots of sewing to be getting on with eh? YAY! :-)
