Poliphilus Hemskerck has problems; issues; life concerns. He always has them. He wears them like a warm rat on his shoulder casually sniffing his ears. He is sure the excess worry will be his downfall just as sure as he is sure of his ineluctable downfall. With so little control over the inevitable Poliphilus Hemskerck spends a great deal of his time shrugging his shoulders and imagining doom. He also likes to take amateur french classes and dance the tango like he is full of amour and vigour.
Poliphilus worries about his ears. They are rather pointy. A problem with angles so his creator tells him.

So a new quilt is called for. Sibling number 1 is having a baby so I have dug out a pattern I have been saving for some time. I had considered dropping this 'Little House on the Prairie' attitude I seem to have with quilts, but I just couldn't stop myself. The quilt I am going to try to make was hung up on a stall at a big show. My mother and I did our best to transcribe it, but I have a sneaking suspicion that my version will be riddled with flaws. Anyway the material is bought, washed and dried and ready to go.

After playing with my friends industrial badgemaker I was hooked. The end of the month made me impetuous and before I knew it, my very own machine was winging its way from Germany. Do I need one? Not really. Do I want one? Yes siree I do. Now every creature will have it's very own badge and I might even do some sets for the stall. I feel the urge to make a sock monster in celebration. I have some very sparkly socks from Top Shop which will do just the job.
