Bit by Another Craft Bug

Looks like I have another craft obsession to deal with now!


I finally got around to working on a vintage embroidery kit

that I got at the thrift store some time ago.

And, I'm already hooked on this craft!

My mom did this when I was young,

and I always thought it looked so hard.

Well, it's not that bad, just takes patience.

And, I love that it's something I can do while watching tv.

Sabrina has even been interested,

she did a few of the leaves.

I also have some fun finds from the thrift!

Check out this great vintage tunic!

And a yellow daisy sheet, a gob of colorful yarn, a My Little Pony,

more yarn, and two ponytail holders that look handmade.

What yummy colors! I can't wait to use that yarn! And hope to wear that new tunic this weekend! bye for now!

For Japan

With all the sadness for Japan,

I really wanted to do something special.

Actually, I had been thinking about a black haired doll

and this pretty pink felt that I'd found.

So I decided to create

I also used some wonderful vintage venise lace

that looks like little flowers.

And some little vintage millinery pink blossoms at her ears.

But most of all,

I will be donating $5 of the purchase price

to the Japanese Red Cross.

Please check her out at my shop!

Spring is Coming!

It's getting a bit warmer here,
and spring is on it's way!
And, I have another Bunny Pose Doll named

I gave her beautiful yellow braids!

And her dress is made partially from vintage fabric.

She definitely makes me smile,
and I hope she makes you smile too!

Check her out in my shop!
Bye for now!

Still in a Christmas and winter mood with my art, and still working on my technique with gouache. It's a much trickier medium than I ...
