Here is the last update for Juanna Rodd. She and Leonard have been happily married for ten years and live in Leonard's family estate in England. They are very happy but never forget the adventures that brought them together.

I know not all of you have read (or desire to read) the Hunger Games, but perhaps you can still enjoy the costumes. There are so many good outfits from the series it was part of the reason I wanted to try my hand at doing a paper doll (and I was a little disappointed with some of the movie's wardrobe).
Here is Catniss as we first see her: hunting with Gale. She wears a cotton button-up shirt that she outgrew a few years back, the pants are from her father (her mother took them in to fit her), soft leather boots keep her feet warm and protected from briars and thistles. She carries several fish caught at the river. In her game-bag is a plethora of herbs and roots for her mother and Prim (her little sister).
Last we saw Ella she wore an elaborate gown with balloon sleeves and draping cuffs, full skirted with plenty of underskirts, in short a very complicated and troublesome gown (although very lovely). Her natural clumsiness combined with the gown's difficulties caused a commotion at dinner and her father demanded she return in something she could manage better-- and made a snap decision to send her off to finishing school where she could learn to be less like a little elephant.
This dress is much more to Ella's liking: a simple shift with a long robe over it, belted by a sash tied in a quick knot. Unfortunately, Ella will not get to wear many more comfortable outfits. Her future is full of classes, danger, princes and balls!
This weekend we're supposed to get some good weather (74 degrees on Sunday!) so I'm planning on doing a lot of gardening. I already have Rosemary, Borage and Chamomile started in a pot inside. I think I am going to dare planting carrots, peas, radishes, and lettuce outside (hopefully they won't get too cold...). I am so excited to get things in the ground! My raspberrys are starting to show green leaves, and buds are already appearing on my apple trees. I can hardly wait until I can harvest all of the bounty that I'm looking forward to!
