This Past Week

Here are a couple of shots from inside my studio this past week.  My desk photo shows my two projects that I had going on towards the end of the week.  Patience’s outfit is finished, but I am still knitting the dress for the Little Darlings; lots of stitches in this one.  Amelia Thimble and Izzy have been hanging out with Bella (my Bo Bergemann Dream Doll).  She is happy to have the little ones to keep her company.

I love our pink magnolia tree, the blossom’s colors are gorgeous.  Today I finished Patience’s outfit and thought the tree would be the perfect backdrop for a couple of photos.
