Cat #2

I used my Chestnut Junction pattern for this kitty.  I did change the face a bit and I hope Kelly doesn't mind. What do you think?

Christmas Dolls



These are little dolls, about 10 inches high.  Because I like the black with Christmas prints.

Do you like me?

My head was once for sale in an exclusive shop, I was 16.99.  I went home with someone who got tired of looking at me and ended up in the Salvation Army thrift store.  Don't get me wrong, those stores are fabulous, especially when an awesome thing like me is found by an awesome shopper who knows a good thing when he/she sees it. And that was me at 99 cents.

It was like that for  kind Mrs. Hudson and I got a new hat band and a Joann fabric bow and a black and white polka dot bow tie.  Looking around her garage we found this little shovel that she and daughter found at an estate sale last summer.

I love my new look and I am hanging on a beautiful door in Waltz, Michigan.  I feel so beautiful!

New Old Picture

I have a new "old" photo.  I found it at the Town Peddler Craft & Antique Mall.  It was $3.00.  Do you like her hat, or her dog, the best?

New at Town Peddler

 Round head Santa, he has a dowel in his hat so it could ruffle.  Made just for fun but couldn't get my friend interested in making him.
 Look at my Rosemary sprigs in the background. 
He got a makeover hat.  felt with painted wooden spool.  Big old button from my collection and postage stamp quilt pants and scarf.

July 27, 2017 handmades

 Simple crow doll with sweet annie and rusty stuff.
 Someone took her hair off and I had to redo it, so she got a make-over.  Sometimes that happens in stores.
 I have lost the pattern for this Annie, but the little bear is a Sweet Meadows one.
Turkey Jack (pattern by Simply Nantucket) my version with less fru-fru.
Star with  some vintage needlework and an old pin, I like.

P.S. May 27

Fuzzy printed picture I like with my very own quote.  One of my customers told me she didn't want anyone else to have one like it, but I can't resist.  Don't you think the two of these look a lot alike?
