The making of a Hitty

You may remember our person had been working on carving a new Hitty for a friend....

she was carving with walnut this time, but was finding it hard going...

This is where she left off in July.

This morning she ditched the walnut.  We are hoping she goes back to it at a later date as we are sure there is a Hitty in there waiting to come out!

Instead she worked with a softer wood and made good progress.

A body is starting to take shape we think.

Hopefully she won't be quite as 'Butch' as Hitty Madge...but shhh don't let her know I said that!

Yes I think I can see a Hitty in there somewhere.

Of course she did too much today....remember to PACE yourself our dear Person!

A new rug for Rose Cottage

Goodness, it has been a while since us Hittys posted about anything.  We have been quietly enjoying our summer getting on with things ourselves.  We are hoping that once school is back then we might start getting paid a bit more attention.  Things are looking up, we got given a new rug for the living room today...

Hitty Annabelle is pleased that it is blue, she likes blue very much.  Hitty Moana seems to be in somewhat of a daze....I think she has been reading too much!

Hitty Annabelle stands back and looks at her handiwork - she has moved the little coffee table on to the rug, and arranged a couple of their favourite books on to it.  

She is pleased.
