Just In Time for Christmas

Merry Christmas to all those who celebrate this holiday! My dolls finished getting dressed yesterday, Christmas Eve. It was just in time I’d say!

The dolls in my sewing room would like to wish you the best this holiday and for the coming year.

    You have a wonderful group of little friends. I know they keep you busy.
    Hope you and your family are enjoying the Christmas season. Happy New Year also. Can’t wait to see what lucky little girl gets your next creation.
    Would you share how you make bracelets? I use jewelry elastic to thread the beads and charms, but never know how to make a professional looking knot or tie. The beads sometimes have holes too small to thread the ends through again.

      Hi, Dee. Indeed they do keep me busy–always asking for new things to wear.
      I use the jewelry elastic too, and thread the beads onto the elastic then tie the ends together. I make 3 half knots. So, left strand over right twice. Since this doesn’t make a permanent knot it is still loose enough to tighten the bracelet together. (Put a pencil, or something else you have on hand, on the inside of the bracelet to keep it from collapsing when pulling the ends tight.) Then for the third half knot go right strand over left to make one full permanent knot. Tighten, tighten, tighten, but gingerly. And test the bracelet’s knot before cutting the ends. Sorry, I’m not sure what this knot is called. Also, make sure you don’t have hand cream on your hands. It coats the elastic and the knot refuses to hold. I hope this helps. ❤️

    Merry Christmas to all the girls Cindy and to you !!! They all look so happy to pose for us your blog friends. I am always amazed at the amount of detail you put in to make each girls outfit. The dresses always have cute details like the lacy hemlines which I personally love. The cardigans have the prettiest embroidery attached to make each outfit pop. All the other details like the tights , shoes and jewelry finish off each girls fabulous look. Sending hugs to you and each of the girls , love, Terri xo.

      Thank you, Terri. They DO take a lot of time, but the girls look so cute all dressed up–it hard to resist making something new for them. And, they are always appreciative. I never hear any grumbling (lol) which makes the creating and giving all the more rewarding. Take care, Terri. ❤️ I hope you are enjoying Crimbo Limbo.
