Little Bo Sheep!

She is my new wool felt and cotton fabric doll.  She is about 12", not including the length of her legs  
I have begun making her wool felt accessories for each month.  The picture shows her warm, wool felt scarf and her mittens on a string for January.  Anybody else remember these as "idiot" mittens?  (Pull one and smack yourself in the face with the other one?)

I have a cute, little red vest with a heart for February.  She has been a lot of fun to make, and trying to come up with some fun ideas for her accessories.

Any suggestions for the upcoming months are welcome!

Blocks 9 and 10 - Annabelle's Adventures

Blocks 9 and 10 for Annabelle's Adventures are available on Craftsy.  Thanks for taking a peek. :))

~ 2015 ~

Here we go!  A fresh, new start!  I don't necessarily think about resolutions and such at the beginning of the new year.  I love thinking about all the new projects I can try.  I don't always think about how I am going to get all these new lovelies finished, however! LOL!!  But isn't that the fun of new beginnings, whether it be a new year or a new project?  All that excited anticipation of something 'new.'  :))  I wish all of you an exciting year filled with wonderment and, of course, anticipation! ;)

Love these crazy, little guys!

Stay tuned...Blocks 9 and 10 for Annabelle's Adventures are on their way. :)

December already??!!

How can this be...only 24 days until Christmas....Wasn't it just Halloween?? :))

Today brings two new parts for Annabelle's Adventures. Block 7 shows Annabelle and her flag, all dressed up for a parade.

Hmmm...Blogger seems to be giving me a problem uploading photos today.  You can always go to my pattern store on Craftsy to see the latest blocks for Annabelle's Adventures.

Annabelle is flying her kite in Block 8 with one of the few breezes that came through for August.

Thank you for visiting, and I hope you are enjoying this journey of Annabelle along with me.

Won't be long....

You know how it goes....once Thanksgiving is here....the next thing you know, you turn around and it's Christmas!  So my Christmas spirit showed up a little early this year.  Here are three little ornaments I have made.

 Two (the bunny and mouse) are from last year.  The sheep is new.  What is also new is that I have finally made a pattern for all three. 

If you are interested, you can see the pattern info here on Craftsy.

Happy Halloween!

Hope everyone has a fun and wonderful Halloween.  Halloween is one of my favorite times of year, especially for stitching and quilting projects. 

Now let me introduce you to some new friends I have made (no, literally, I made them.)  Billy Bone-a-Parte and his partner, Belle ('cause she is so 'boo-tiful!)   I had this idea sometime last year, but got stuck when trying to make Billy.  He  was a lot of fun to make.  Just to get an idea of how big Billy is, this is a shot of him on the sofa.  He even has body parts.  Remember the Operation game we had as kids (and it's still around)?  Something like that..with a broken heart, bats in the belfry, a frog in his throat, a hang nail...you get the idea.  He is all dressed up with his spats and cuffs.  After making Billy, I decided he needed a partner.  Belle is a, how can I say this?  A spirited girl!  with her sparkly hair, long eyelashes and what appears to be a mole on her cheek (it's a teeny spider!) .  Belle is not quite picture  ready, but will be soon.  They are an 'enchanting' couple, to say the least., OK, enough puns, right? 

Have a great Halloween!
