Granville Island & New Toys

Well, it’s the end of my second week off. Feels rather slow but I guess it’s been nice to rest and just take it easy. No, the baby isn’t here yet…

On Wednesday I went for a walk to Granville Island. Took some pics as usual (with the new digicam). It was a lovely walk indeed. I ended up buying some pot pies for Thursday night’s dinner and a Micro Playmobile set from the Kids’ Market.

Yesterday, I also received my Tailor Gibson Blythe from HLJ. She is my first RBL mold Blythe. Her hair is so much softer than I expected it to be. Probably the softest hair of all the Blythe dolls that I have. I had to fix her bangs a bit though because I did not like the gap that came from the factory. So I gave her a hair wash, ironed her bags (with a towel), and gave her a bit of a fringe trim. I have to admit that she looks much cuter in person. Wasn’t sure if I was going to keep her but I think I will. I still need to think of a name (although I quite like the name Tailor itself but then it almost seems thoughtless of me to choose that!).

I made a bear softie last night for a present but haven’t completed it yet. I will take a picture of it once it is done. Made it from some Japanese pattern books (no I am not that talented to come up with my own patterns!). I also just made some cinnamon bread pudding right now. I hope it tastes alright.
