The top is a crown royal cap with a wing nut. She really looks like she can really run like a sub with all of those mechanical gears! I had to give her a steam punk name, of course! It's Miss Prudence Pickergill! Sounds like an old spinster teacher name and perhaps she is, she looks like she could be the head mistress of a school of fish, of her very own!
The pattern is by Frowning Francis. I looked up the other dolls she has made. Such a wonderful world of fantasy.
I must say that I feel quite old already! I had a dental appointment on friday for a cleaning and I had to have the cat to the vet to have a couple of teeth pulled. Anyway, the appointments were an hour drive from each other. I knew I couldn't make it without filling up with gas. Anymore, you have to prepay before you can pump the gas. Anyway, I had to pick up the cat, had to stop at the grocery for a couple of items, and had company coming later that day. I had figured I had a little time before I picked up the cat so thought I would stop home first. I was just about 5 miles to home when I happened to look down at the gas gauge and it said 11 miles to empty! Here I had paid for my gas that I hadn't pumped!!! lol Talk about a senior moment! For that, I should have gotten a discount! Luckily I finally did make it to a gas station and the fact that $50 was credited back from the other gas station. It will take awhile to catch on to this prepaying senior! As it turns out, one of the attendants says that it happens quite a lot! So, perhaps I am the norm! Now I am curious, What is the dumbest thing that everyone has done?
