Happy Saturday to You!

Hello to you!  It’s so nice to be back talking to you after only a couple of days.  I’d love to make this a habit…  When I last wrote we were having strong storms daily and very humid weather.  After much rain throughout the week, we woke yesterday to many of the streets flooded in the Chicago area.  My daughter is now commuting to a nearby (sort of) college and had to take some alternative streets; she allowed extra time.  While out on my walk, there was flooding where I’d never seen it before.  This morning, however, it’s a different story–there is a definite nip in the air; I think we’ve maybe started the transition between summer and fall.  Truthfully, I’m not sure I’m ready, are you?

Some exciting (for me) news is that last evening, I added my first (since February of 2018!) one-of-a-kind doll ensembles “Blossomy Sprinkles”, to my available pages.

Here is a little slideshow of the photos I took of this ensemble.

I now host my website through WordPress, not GoDaddy, so it’s a bit different finding the sales pages.  I hope it’s not too confusing.  The individual pages will highlight if you bring your cursor to the Available tab at the top of this blog.  Click on the ensemble’s title and you’ll be taken to the sales page.  To purchase, please fill out the contact form (like before); I will get your form promptly emailed to me.  Because of the high cost of international shipping and insurance it is still my policy to only ship within the U.S.  My apologies to all my international friends.  I appreciate your understanding, thank you.

I know I haven’t talked too much about this, but in case you were wondering, my health and healing journey has kept me away for so long; I am now well.  It is so good to be back, creating and sharing with you.  I don’t think I will be creating doll ensembles with the same vigor as I was doing before, but I will try to have new things to show you on a somewhat regular basis.  Also, if you enjoy seeing ‘in process’ photos and/or photos from my regular ‘ole life please let me know and I will include more of those types of photos and posts.

I thought this comparison would be fun to show you.  Lucy is on the left modeling “Blossomy Sprinkles” and Alice is on the right modeling “Flower Picking” from 2016.

And, the little cardigans…

And now, the dresses without the cardis…

Hope you enjoyed those.

Have a super Saturday my friends!  And thank you so much for sticking with me throughout my long journey!

Oh, almost forgot to mention–I will try to be back tomorrow morning with photos of Gina modeling her new ensemble.

From the Past Month

Ah, once again it’s been so long between posts.  Time goes by so quickly!  I should title this post “From the Past Month Plus”.  It’s been a busy August here simply enjoying the summertime.

After a rainy June, July and August finally felt like summer had arrived and I took full advantage.  I thoroughly enjoyed soaking up my dose from the almost daily sunshine!  It makes me a little sad that September is right around the corner; summer was not long enough in my opinion.  Maybe we will be blessed with a warm-ish and sunny autumn.  Fingers crossed!

Here’s a little peak of a new ensemble I just completed for my Little Darling, Lucy.

My girls have agreed to “share” this ensemble soon.  Lucy wants to wear it for a few more days before “sharing” though.

Do you like dragonflies?  This dragonfly landed right on my finger as soon as I was about to take a photo of Lucy’s cardigan.  It was so unexpected and sweet.  He wanted to stay on my finger too.  I’m probably too impatient; I had to set him elsewhere after a minute or two.

Now for some human knitting news.  I finished my “Rumble in Brighton socks”.  You can read about that yarn in my last blog post.  The yarn is a random speckled yarn, but it knit up looking like micro stripes.  I have no idea why…

My current sock project is self-striping yarn by Urth Yarn’s Uneek Sock base in color #58.  My local yarn store where I purchased it at is 2 Needle Chicks.  I must say the yarn is tons prettier than the photo on the box.  I’ll share the finished pair next time.

If you’re in the U.S. I hope you all have a beautiful Labor Day weekend.  I’ve never heard of this, but my daughter has classes on Labor Day!  I thought the point of Labor day was no labor.  Oh, well…

Bye for now, my friends. ❤

A Happy Hello

Hello, dear friends.  I wanted to pop in and wish you a great weekend and a Happy Easter if you celebrate.  My three Little Darlings—Gina, Lucy, and Alice are dressed in their finest and awaiting the Easter Bunny’s arrival tomorrow.  I wonder what treasures their baskets will hold.

It just started raining here; the wind is picking up, and it’s none too warm!  Ugh!  I think I’ll dream and wish and pray for a sunny Easter Sunday tomorrow.  How about you?  Although it isn’t always, (I remember snowy ones) Easter Sunday should be sunny!

Speaking of sunshine, here’s a photo of my chihuahua soaking up the sunshine from a week ago.  He gravitates towards every sunbeam coming into the house.  No doubt today, with the absence of sunshine, he will be burrowed in his blankets, poor baby.

Have a wonderful Easter weekend or simply a wonderful weekend!  If you care to share your weekend plans, I’d love to hear them. ❤
