“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!

 

“Springtime Sweetie”

Hello to you all!  I hope you are enjoying a great weekend!  Yesterday wasn’t too bad for us–warm…ish and sunny.  We’re getting there, although today isn’t nice at all, chilly and drizzly.

I want to share with you my little Sophie who has been waiting patiently for ‘picture taking day’.  She’s very anxious to show you how cute she looks in “Springtime Sweetie”.

Sophie’s long sleeved cardigan is hand knit with Knit Picks Aloft (mohair/silk) using my Light Cardigan for Patsy pattern.  I embroidered a simple little rose and rosebuds at the neckline.  Her dress is made from a Lecien Minnny Muu cotton print; the pastel multi-colored bows are tiny and sweet.  She carries a drawstring crochet bag and wears a beaded crochet headband.  I customized her purchased shoes by adding bows and beads to match the headband.

 Thank you for stopping by today.  Have a great week! ❤

Something New… “Warm Hugs and Kisses”

It feels so good to have this ensemble for the Little Darlings finally finished!  This was the other one I started in early December.  Sheesh!  Since all I want to do lately is knit, I had to add this to my “to do” list to get this one completed—and I’m glad I did.  I really enjoy seeing my happy Little Darling, Lucy, enjoying it so much.

See how happy . . . and cozy warm she looks!  Her sweater coat and cap set is knit with merino wool/angora yarn.  It is slightly fuzzy with a halo and is quite soft.  The sweater coat is knit with my pattern.  I shortened it by one buttonhole’s length and omitted the pockets.  The hand embroidery on this sweater coat and cap is pretty and feminine and coordinates with the dress print.

The cotton print I selected for the dress is a calico from a “Little House on the Prairie” collection.  The Cluny laces in this ensemble are from England.  The scalloped lace is cotton and the sturdier lace used for the sash is nylon, both are off white in color.

Lucy’s other accessories include a hand knit wool scarf, heart charm bracelet, pink cotton tights, and a Teddy bear which is customized to coordinate with this set.
