Hello, how are you? Spring busted out all over this past week. We went from winter to summer in no time. This past week was that hot! 🌞 After one week the summery weather is through for awhile though. It’s getting cold again, and soon the rain will become snowflakes. It’s so hard to adjust…
Regardless of the temperature variations, everything is greening up, including Lucy’s new cardigan. I am really loving green lately–such a fresh and down-to-earth color.
Here is Lucy’s sweater that I embroidered with pink roses.
And, here is Lucy wearing it with her new spring dress and accessories.
Lucy is my Little Darling, sculpt #3, painted by Helen Skinner. This happy girl reminds me of the smiling Ruby Red Fashion Friends that Dianna Effner sculpted. They never fail to make me feel a bit happier.
I hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend! Wishing you a great week ahead, my friends. Hopefully, your weather will be better than ours. 🤗
Hi there! How are you? I hope you are doing great. All good at my end despite the rainy day today… and yesterday. However, up until Thursday it was a beautiful week weather wise.
With the rainy weather came motivation to get into my studio and get some embroidery done so that I could finish this ensemble for Lucy.
The cardigan for this ensemble had been languishing in my stash. It has a small imperfection; I pulled one of the mohair strands and it made a horizontal pull on the sweater. You might be able to see it on the right front near the bottom. It is fine for us here; with my memory I’m sure I’ll forget it’s even there.
Because the cardigan was already made I was able to get this ensemble put together without too much effort this week. Lucy loves it!
Lucy does hope you like her new look. She says it surely puts her in the springtime spirit even on these rainy days.
If you’d like to see this ensemble in progress I have included it in my latest YouTube video.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend! 💜🤗 Thank you for stopping by for a visit!
Wow! This month has flown by! Do you agree? Tiny Amelia Thimble would like to say Happy Halloween to you! She hopes it is a fun and safe day for all trick-or-treaters. It will be a bit different for us this year. We will be putting candy in plastic bags and spreading them out on the driveway so everyone can stay safe–lots of space and only touching their own treat. Hope it works.
This past week I finished up Alice’s ensemble so now all three of my Little Darlings are wearing new outfits. They don’t necessarily coordinate, but that’s okay; they are very excited to ALL have a chance to show you their new fall finery. Smiles and happiness all around; this trio doesn’t get many picture taking opportunities.
Yesterday evening I published a video, embroidering bullion roses. If you’d like to watch me embroider the two-rose motif on Alice’s pink sweater coat then this one is for you. 🙂 I’ve been wanting to show you this for a LONG time. Finally…
Let me know what you think, or if there is something I missed.
I think I forgot to mention this next video. In it I am trying to decide which fabric for Alice’s dress. I know I asked all of you–thank you so much for your suggestions. It’s so much fun for me to hear your opinions! As I looked back I saw that I had already used a couple of these fabrics for Little Darling dresses and one I even used twice. I ended up picking one I hadn’t used before for these dolls.
Today I am going to start knitting the hat which will be the first sample for the Little Darling Ear Flap Hat pattern. It’s a beautiful day, so I’ll definitely get out for a walk with the pup… and maybe do a little vacuuming. That will most likely take me to dinner time.
I wish you all a great weekend! Stay safe and enjoy! 🎃 Thank you for visiting with me today. 🧡 I’d love to know how your town is doing Halloween this year. Bye for now…
