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! 🤗💖

Some of My Favorite Holiday Embroidery

Over the years I’ve embroidered quite a few holiday sweaters and sweater dresses for my bigger dolls down to the tinies. I thought I’d share some of them with you today.

I’ve embroidered lots of holly and ivy, evergreen boughs, poinsettias, snowflakes, ornaments, and candy canes.

This cardigan was made for the Little Darlings in 2016. I love the addition of beads and how simple and clean looking it is–just like freshly fallen snow.

This tiny dress for Amelia Thimble shows my love of pink poinsettias. The dress is only 2″ long, so this is one tiny poinsettia.

Here’s another two-inch dress for Amelia Thimble. It’s one of the many holly and ivy embroideries I’ve done. I love the mint green greenery on this one.

My Pukipuki who isn’t much larger than Amelia Thimble got this colorful botanically embroidered sweater dress. I love the addition of some bright colors–the fuchsia and yellow gold embroidered bows on the evergreen boughs.

My little sister to the Little Darlings, Boneka Rose, got this cardigan to coordinate with her ‘heart-shaped flowers’ print dress.

Beads and fuzzy yarn help to create this winter wonderland embroidered on Lucy’s capelet, headband ear warmer, and muff.

These colorful ornaments on the evergreen boughs were so much fun to do. I pulled out all my seed and bugle beads and went to town. This is the dress that inspired this embroidery. Oh my, Gracie has her hands full with holiday decorations!

And last but not least here is Amelia Thimble dressed like a Christmas tree. The bullion stitched ornament balls have a loop of gold hanging from the green silk ribbon.

I hope you’v enjoyed this little holiday embroidery picture show.

Have a wonderful week!

Hugs 🤗, Cindy

Let’s Reminisce–Holiday Ensembles for Millie Through the Years

My tiny Kaye Wiggs Millie arrived during the 2014 Christmas season. She was, and still is, a special one indeed–a tiny elfin face with the cutest hands I had ever seen. I promptly made her her very first ensemble befitting of her enchanting personality. It was called “Make a Christmas Wish”.

Then for the 2015 Christmas season she got two holiday ensembles. One a little fancier with “Cozy Christmas Color” and the other more comfy casual with, “My Forever Snowman”.

For the first she wore lace tights and a fuzzy mohair/silk cardigan with botanical embroidery. To keep her playful nature, though, she wore a Santa hat atop her carrot mohair bob.

For her second 2015 ensemble Millie wore a beautiful aqua blue sweater dress that came with a perfectly adorned and coordinated snowman. I think “My Forever Snowman” proved to be Millie’s favorite.

In 2016 Millie wore a vintage inspired ensemble, “Toasty Warm Holiday”. It included a vintage looking headband ear warmer and a fuzzy muff. This ensemble was all about fuzzy snowy-looking pieces with vintage flair.

And for Millie’s last holiday ensemble (to date) she wore another ensemble that included a snowman; this time a little needle felted snowman. This ensemble is called “Little Frosty”and is has more of a classic look than the others.

Those are the five ensembles I’ve made for Millie over the years. This last one is hers to keep–snowman and all. I will help her get dressed up in it soon.

Which is your favorite of Millie’s ensembles?

I hope you are enjoying the start of this special time of year. I love this season, however, it goes by so, so fast. This year I am really making an effort to savor each moment of each day in the hopes it might go a little slower.

I am also documenting this season with some video. I have two new holiday decorating videos on You Tube. I’d love for you to watch them if you’d like.

I really appreciate you visiting with me today. I’d love to hear from you too. How are you decorating for the season?

Stay safe and warm my friends.
