~What’s been going on round here~

Well y’all… I love Pandora. I really love it. You pick a song and it builds a  “station” around the songs you like. Love that. Imagine a little rock, a little country, a little folk. Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Kid Rock, Dixie Chicks, the Band Perry. Daughtry, Paul Simon and everything in-between. Cool.

My cat ate some roving.. I am freaking out. I don’t know if you remember our Kitty but he ate yarn– we think… the next thing you know he was gone from a horrible intestinal blockage. He didn’t make it. Oh, it was bad so, so bad. Scratch that, I think she is ok, this was yesterday and she hasn’t missed a beat. I don’t know. We’ve had a bad run with cats.. I might be a little paranoid.

It wasn’t this, it was gray roving. This is an art batt. So pretty. It’s from my My friend and inspiration Camilla.  So pretty and sparkly.

Hello Charlotte~I have Charlotte on my mind. I love the name Charlotte. I didn’t use to, but I really do now.

I love her little outfit~

I am about to start a project for a friend. I so hope I don’t muck it up.

~Hello pretty face~

I have just realized my blog is outdated, old stuff on here. Ugh. I need a makeover. Deep sigh.

I am excited about Christmas. It is shaping up to be a good one this year. This is me praying for no problems, no drama, Lord please keep us all safe. Please.

Trying to find a Christmas service for my daughter and I to go to. My husband is working on Christmas, but I want to go to church. I really do. Must get on that.

Also, need to get teacher gifts.. not so prepared this year.. what to do ??

What’s new with you??

~You can call her Hermione~

According to my daughter, this little one looks like Hermione in the first and second Harry Potter movies. Bushy brown hair with natural highlights. Funny. That girl is funny.

I love making these dolls. I just love the whole process.

I think I am getting a little better with each doll. I love the yarn mix I used for her hair. I love her knitted dress and booties.  I love this  Dress pattern.  I love the little shoe pattern.  I am working on a little sweater. I will have to show you when it is complete.

The holidays are coming fast. Can you believe it?
I am trying to get my thoughts organized.  I have to admit there is not much time left.  I am hopeful this will be a lovely and quiet holiday season for my family. We have had a few rough ones here of late.  This year I am working towards keeping stress very low and finding joy in the simple things, and focusing on the beauty of the season.

 

How are  you doing this holiday season? What are you working on?

~ You gotta have Faith~

Meet my new little friend Faith.

I love her.  Her picture is blurry, but I still think she is beautiful.

So hard to get a good picture.

She loves to be outside, barefoot with the wind blowing her long hair. Her mom made her put it up in ponytails.

She loves the Autumn light.

She loves to smell the flowers.

Details:

Waldorf Inspired Doll pattern from:: Growing up Sew Liberated. So cute!

Hair from::  my FAVORITE yarn lady, Camilla.

Mixed with a blonde mix from Dancing Rain Dolls, which unfortunately is no longer in business :(

Peasant dress, my own pattern.

Leggings, I modified with 2 layers of ruffles from this pattern.

Sweater is::  Little Kina   I modified the pattern a bit by knitting a long sleeve version.

I named my Waldorf Inspired doll Faith because I made her at the same time we were facing personal challenges at home.  Through prayer and faith, today things are much improved. I have George Michael singing in my head, but it’s true, You Gotta Have Faith, Faith, Faith.

I really loved making this doll, she is my 2nd Waldorf Inspired doll. The first was from a kit from Dancing Rain dolls, the kit came with a pre-formed head. This time I bought my supplies from Weir Dolls. The head was a challenge but I think it came out just fine.  I foresee making more little friends, oh yes I do.
