Mid December

Hello! 🎄 How are you doing? Tomorrow is the 3rd Sunday of Advent… already. Oh my goodness–how these days are flying by!

Today I finished dressing my Little Darlings in their holiday ensembles. They are ready! They have gifts to give, carols to sing, snowflakes to make, and holiday cards to send.

I uploaded a new vlog this evening. I took video throughout the week documenting what I was working on and doing, and I then put it into a little video for you to watch. I hope you enjoy it. I had a very nice and productive week. I think I spent a few days dedicated to dolly craft.

My littlest chihuahua had to go in to have some baby teeth removed on Thursday. I was a very nervous momma, but he came through fine. The poor thing, though–not a good day for him. He was very vocal (squeaky) for hours afterwards.

Alice’s ensemble was made a while ago. I replaced the pink ribbon sash with a light red one and tied a bit of it in her hair. I replaced her pink tights with ivory and made her a holiday craft basket. She is making snowflakes and sending out Christmas cards.

Gina and Lucy are wearing new ensembles. I’m sure you’ve seen these two ensembles in the works many times. They have been much documented in my videos. And Lucy’s ear flap hat was the sample for my latest pattern. The instructions for Lucy’s scarf are in the description box for this video (I show how to change colors in the video–no cutting yarn between stripes). Gina’s Christmas stocking is a free pattern by Little Cotton Rabbits here. I made it 4 stitches narrower however.

Since these ensembles aren’t too holiday-like the girls will be able to wear them into winter–while I make things for my other dolls.

Alice, Gina, Lucy, and I would like to wish you a beautiful third week of Advent. May it be peaceful and filled with happy times and lovely moments.

I’d love to hear how your holiday preparations are coming along!

Sending hugs to you all! 🤗💖

      Bonjour Marie. Je conviens que ce Noël sera bien différent. Je suppose que nous devons essayer d’en tirer le meilleur parti. Il y a peut-être une lueur d’espoir quelque part. Merci d’avoir commenté et apprécié mes vidéos. J’apprécie vraiment que vous les regardiez. Dites bonjour à vous les chats de minou doux pour moi. 🐱 J’espère que votre semaine commence bien. ❤️

      Hello, Marie. I agree that this Christmas will be quite different. I guess we must try to make the best of it. Maybe there is a silver lining somewhere. Thank you for commenting and enjoying my videos. I really appreciate you watching them. Say hello to you sweet kitty cats for me. 🐱 I hope your week is starting out nicely. ❤️

    The girls look so festive in their outfits. Bringing some Xmas cheer. 🙂 Think we all need some of that.
    Sorry about pup’s teeth. Must have been difficult. Poor little guy. 😦
    Hope you have a delightful holiday with your family.

      Hi, Joy. They indeed do bring holiday cheer–every time I walk into my sewing room there they are looking cute, calm, and happy. My little guy is doing great, thanks. So nice to have his baby teeth (shark teeth) gone. Two sets of incisors…ouch, not that he bites, but he’s a little mouthy when playing. I hope you’ve had a great week! ❤️

      Hi, Terri. Yes, I know. I have been very mindful of each day this Advent, and still it has flown by. What is the secret?
      My little chihuahua is good as new, thanks. The vet removed 7 baby teeth! I can’t help but he has to feel more comfortable.
      Sometimes when I am approaching my sewing room I swear I hear tiny voices singing. Ha ha–just kidding. It is fun to imagine though.
      We don’t have a flake of snow either. I think it snowed three times this season for about 20 seconds each. For some reason this year I am looking forward to a snowfall. That’s a lot of snow–16 inches! I know we’ll get it–don’t worry! Have a great weekend, Terri. ❤️

        Its hard to know the secret of stopping or slowing time Cindy!! Imagining is fun , keeps our minds sharp! The snow will come soon enough ! Happy Friday and weekend, Terri xoxo.
