“Folksy for Fall”

Happy Sunday to you from soggy northern Illinois.  We had rain again last night, or I should say early morning.  My weather wishes–I hope the clouds clear and we have some sunshine later.  Yesterday was a perfect day:  fluffy clouds, blue sky, light breeze, perfectly warm.  My husband and I took an afternoon walk through the neighborhood.  We enjoyed the day immensely, and by the amount of cars outside everyone else seemed to also. 😮 !

This morning I want to show you the second ensemble I have completed for the Little Darlings.  This time Gina, my first Little Darling and painted by Geri Uribe in 2012, is modeling for you.  Such a cutie pie she is!

There will be more information and photos detailing this ensemble on the sales page (to find it, the name of this ensemble will highlight under the ‘Available’ tab) at 1:00 pm, CST today (September 15, 2019).  If you have a U.S. address and would then like to purchase “Folksy for Fall” please fill out the contact form under the ‘contact’ tab and submit it to me.  This is a one-of-a-kind ensemble.

Just for fun, here is a photo from when I previously used this fabric print for Kish Bethany… way back in 2012.  Isn’t she sweet!

Wishing you all a beautiful day today! ❤

“Blossomy Sprinkles”

Hello to you, my friends! ❤  I hope you’ve been well.

Even though things are moving slowly around here I have two!!! one-of-a-kind ensembles that are all ready to share with you!  I am so excited to show you the first ensemble which is called “Blossomy Sprinkles”.  See the blossoms sprinkled all over this sweet fabric (Pretty Posies Collection) designed by Darlene Zimmerman?  The blossoms reminded me of cupcake sprinkles; hence the title of this ensemble was created. 🙂

 My “Blossomy Sprinkles” ensemble will be available tomorrow night (Friday, Sept. 13, 2019) at 7:00 pm CST.   (When it is available for sale the Available tab will highlight this ensemble; you can then click on the title to read more about it.)

For information on how to purchase and my shipping locations please read the Available page.

Meanwhile here are some preview photos.  This ensemble is being modeled by my precious Little Darling Lucy who was painted by Helen Skinner.

I hope you are enjoying the month of September so far.  It has been quite warm and very humid in northern Illinois.  The pollen and mold levels are high and I am feeling the effects of that.  I love the beauty of autumn, but for me, autumn is the time when my outdoor allergies make me feel ‘not so great’.  My ‘cure’ is to stay inside where we have a heavy duty filter on our air conditioning/heating unit. 😉

Bye for now! ❤  Wishing you a great day!

 

New Pattern, Snow!, and a Hello from Sugar

Hello there!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  I am looking out my window on this April 15th morning… Mother Nature, what are you thinking?!

It snowed all day long yesterday.  We ended up with 8 inches of snow–a lot for mid April.

My husband and daughter had some fun yesterday and brought this life sized snowman to life.  (Poor thing has already lost his eyes and mouth–he’s melting!)  But, look how cute he was yesterday!  They had fun!

In anticipation of the snowstorm we picked all of our daffodils Saturday night that we didn’t think would survive the heavy wet snow.  I’m glad we did as they really brighten up the house and remind us that it is indeed spring.

Dolly News!

My PukiPuki Sugar has a new dress/hat set.  She loves it, and wanted to show you–and also to say hello.

Her hat was one of the samples I knit from my newly published Amelia Thimble Hat Set Pattern.  The pattern is available on Ravelry.

Below is a slideshow of past hats made using these patterns.  They each use tiny amounts of lace weight yarn, so you can use up little bits to create you own tiny hat wardrobe.
