Hello, my friends. Tomorrow is Mother’s Day in the U.S. It is a day for pampering our moms and those who care for us. Even if you don’t celebrate this day take a moment to receive some flower bouquets from my sweet girls. They’ll pamper you just because…
Patience (from Tonner/Wilde Imagination) has picked a little bouquet of bright pink and ivory blossoms. She’s tied them all together with an even brighter pink ribbon. Patience is wearing an ensemble from 2017 called “Happiness in Pink”. Her hot pink mohair cardigan is knit with my Classic Cardigan for Patience. (The pattern can be found here and purchased on Ravelry.)
Patsy has picked a bouquet of pure white long stemmed blossoms for you. She’s tied the stems together with streamers of warm pink ribbon. How sweet she is! Patsy is wearing an ensemble from 2017 titled “Blossom for my Love-ly”. Her mohair cardigan has also been knit with my Patsy knitting pattern. More information about the Light Cardigan for Patsy can be found here and purchased on Ravelry.
My Little Darling, Lucy, (#3 sculpt painted by Helen Skinner) has picked a pink rose with ivory blossoms and tied them all together with a lilac ribbon for you. Lucy is wearing a summery sweater dress from 2016. The ensemble is titled “My Favorite Roses” , more photos and info. can be found by clicking the title. Unfortunately, I don’t have a pattern for this one. The sweater dress pattern I have for these girls uses a slightly heavier weight yarn.
Next, is my Little Darling, Gina who is the #1sculpt and painted by Geri Uribe. Gina has found spring daisies and arranged them in a cute sprinkling can for you. Gina tied a warm pink bow around the blossoms. “Daisy Chain” is from 2016; more photos and information can be found here. Her mohair cardigan is knit with my Light Cardigan pattern using the short sleeves and long version instructions. This pattern has 3 sleeve lengths and 3 body length versions (all can be mixed and matched for 9 total possibilities). The pattern can be purchased on Ravelry.
Gracie (Kaye Wiggs MSD sized BJD) has really gone all out! She’s put together a basket of mauve roses, pink blossoms, and a little teddy bear holding a “made with love” charm. Tied on the handle is a pink bow. Gracie’s ensemble is from 2017 and titled “A Springtime Garden Stroll”. Her cardigan was knit with my pattern for her. More information on the pattern can be found here and purchased on Ravelry.
Lucy is my Little Darling (#1 sculpt) painted by Nelly Valentino. She has picked a full bouquet of ivory and peachy pink blossoms for you. Tied around the stems is a bow with beaded ends. Her ensemble is from 2017 and titled “Princess in Peach”. Her cardigan pattern hasn’t been published as shown. I think I may have used the Lace Cardigan pattern using only the lace panel for the sleeves and made it one repeat shorter, but I cannot remember for sure. Also, the Aunt Lydia’s #10 bamboo thread (discontinued by Red Heart) knits up as wide as fingering, but with a different row gauge, so you get a shorter sweater. I’m not sure if I re-spaced the buttonholes for a shorter sweater.
Here is Penny (Linda Macario BJD). Penny has picked a tiny bouquet of ivory blossoms, tied them together with pink satin ribbon, and added a pink heart because she loves you. Penny wears a sweater dress ensemble from 2016. It is titled “Pastels in the Garden”. This is another style I haven’t published, but I love sweater dresses on Penny. BTW, I do have one pattern for Penny, Polly, and Patty. It is a Classic Cardigan and can be found using the link and purchased on Ravelry.
Last, by not least, is Millie (11″ Kaye Wiggs BJD). Millie has picked a lush bouquet of light pink and ivory blossoms. She’s tied the stems together with a bit of beautiful lace and pink ribbon just for you. Millie wears an ensemble from 2016 titled “Cutie in the Garden”. For more photos and information about her ensemble click the link.
I hope you all are enjoying the weekend. For those moms who celebrate Mother’s Day–Happy Mother’s Day to you! ❤
Hi Cindy, In Ireland Mothers day was celebrated in April I think this year.It is always the fourth Sunday of Easter, a tradition going way back to honor Mary our Mother. But I will call my Mom tomorrow! How sweet are your Girls! So nice to send all the Mom’s flowers! Patience is so cute in her happiness in pink ensemble, and I love the flowers. Patsy’s dress is adorable and I love the lacy hem! I like white flowers. Lucy has the nicest smile to go with the flowers. How cute Gina has flowers in her hair and the sprinkling can! I dont often see mauve roses so I appreciate Gracie offering them, She is gorgeous. Lucy is a princess in peach, I like the embroidery on the cardigan matching the dress so well. Penny did a great job picking the ivory blossoms. Millie is just so so sweet in her floral print dress , hte bouquet matches it well. Thank you to all the Girls for being so nice, happy Mother’s day to you Cindy, Terri xoxo.
Happy Mother’s Day, Terri. Thank you for sharing when Mother’s Day is celebrated in Ireland. It is very special that this day is tied to Easter and honors Mary. All of my girls say thank you for the compliments you’ve showered upon them. I hope you enjoy your day with your family. Hugs to you, too, Terri!
Thank you Cindy, I hope you had a nice day, did you get to share it with your Daughter? It is nice that the Irish one celebrates Mary on the Irish day. But yesterday we had the May crowning at Mass where the kids brought flowers up to a statue of Mary at the start of Mass and one Girl placed a floral band on her head, so beautiful. Aww your Girls are so sweet, it is easy to compliment them, have a nice week ahead Dear, Terri xoxo.
Please thank the girls! Loved the great photos and flowers too.
Hope your Mother’s Day brings sunshine and flowers for you too. 🙂
Thank you, Joy! Not too much sunshine here, unfortunately (ugh)–no warmth either, but the flowers don’t mind. I hope you have a beautiful Mother’s Day! Enjoy! ❤
