I'm not too sure about my person having posted a photo of me in my birthday suit, but I guess I will just have to go with the flow as she wants to show photos of me before and after my make over.
I arrived safely in England on 6th August 2012 from Argentina. I had a comfortable journey that went rather smoothly, but was certainly glad to see some daylight after what seemed a long period of darkness.
I need to be sanded lightly, sealed and painted, but I think I am going to have to have quite some patience for that to happen. My pegs will also need putting into position properly and glued.
Hence I think my name is going to be Patience as I will certainly need some! My person thought she would call me Agatha, as that is the name that came to her during the night, but really I am not so sure it suits me. Certainly in the meantime I shall be known as Hitty Patience.
Well! I could hardly remain without any clothes for long now could I, especially discovering it was rather cold and damp here when I arrived. Surely this can't be summer? I always thought summers were supposed to be warm with lovely blue skies and the sun shining and warm weather? Oh well, never mind I will just have to get used to it I suppose.
So I got out sewing machine, table and chair and set to work with some fabric, needle and thread and this is what I came up with.
Not bad for a first dress. Now I really must remember to look at myself in the mirror when dressing before letting my person take a photo of me, as the dress isn''t really lop sided, nor is my waist and hips! I think I will make another one in yellow and I must also make some aprons to keep my dress clean when I am working. Oh so much to do when settling into a new home!
