- Five years into widowhood, after one year of incredible happiness and nearly 14 years of single blessedness. Have given up perfect manicures and pretty hands in order to resume playing the soprano recorder and to see if I can figure out how to play bluegrass banjo. Singing in the shower. Still really, *really* love to knit!

Doll stuff and a tablescape.
First the doll stuff. We bought these at Daiso last weekend. Four little chairs, one little table. Middlest and I talked it over, and we will probably go back and get another table, so that the tables, which are not quite tall enough to fit dolly knees under, could function as end tables in two groupings of two chairs each. That will probably not happen until after the Christmas ornaments are put away. I need to make or find little tablecloths or thin glass circles to fit on top of the tables (maybe circles of the kind of plastic you put on top of steel shelving to keep things from falling through?) so that the plates and cups will not wobble. These chairs are the right size for Chutzpah and her cronies.
And next, the tablescape. I wanted to bring some red into that center bowl, and I think we were successful.
In other news, I now have a tatting board on Pinterest. And it's 11:00, and I meant to be in bed an hour ago. Good night! (Take that any way you like.)
