Colonel Geraldine May

Geraldine Pratt May, was the first Air Force woman to earn the grade of Colonel and the first Director of Women in the Air Force. She died in 1997 at the age of 102. What a grand age! Thought she may like to try out the new Air Force digital tiger stripe uniform.
This is my beautiful friend Tania, who I miss so much. She is also my next doll victim.... watch this space!

I'm slow! (but happily inspired by great music)

It's taken me all day to make Air Force pants & cap for this chick. Still need to sew on some pockets, then it's the jacket.... not looking forward to that I can tell you!! :O) This video was from Dessa Rae's Blog, not only does she make fantastic babies, she has excellent musical taste! It's called 'Love Story meets Viva La Vida', which is very apt for my current project, since I met my husband whilst he was stationed in England! Such uplifting music, I'm loving it! I love this so much, I had to post it on ADO too!!

I wish there were shops like this where I live! This shop belongs to Sarah, in Felixstowe, UK. It's full of lovely treasures, especially the ones made by my sister!
I've been creating again... I think it must be time to get my Etsy shop open!

Isn't he cute?! He sits under my car every night, tucking into cat food! 5.30pm on the dot - used to be 8pm, but he figured if he gets there early, he can beat the other 7 Racoons!
