Easter Bunny is Arriving Soon

Hello, my friends! It’s that time of year again when the Easter Bunny can be seen hopping around hiding colored eggs and sweet treats. I think I might has spotted a fluffy white tail in my yard. ūüėČ My girls in the sewing studio hope he doesn’t forget to stop on by and leave a little something for them.

In years past, he hasn’t forgotten them, so I think they will get a visit from him. Years ago, Gina got this adorable basket that was filled with the cutest sweets and toys.

Gina was thrilled with her Easter gift from the Easter Bunny.

Another year Amelia Thimble was gifted this fuzzy bunny that was as big as her! She still finds him very, very huggable to this day.

Then a couple of years later, Talyssa got ahold of Amelia’s bunny. I think little Miss Amelia was bit miffed, but she let Talyssa get in a few hugs before reclaiming him as her own. “You have two stuffed bunnies of your own, Miss Talyssa,” pouted Amelia.

I’ve had a bit of a slow week in the studio, but I managed to finish Patience’s ensemble and started looking for my next fabric inspiration. I have a VERY short YouTube video showing this past week’s work. I’m hoping next week is a little more fruitful.

Wishing you all a beautiful spring weekend! And a blessed Easter to those who observe this holiest of days. ūüíź

Santa’s Helpers

I presently have six different dolls all dressed up in Christmas ensembles, and the poor things have nowhere to go. ¬†How about posing for some photos, girls? ¬†Let’s show everyone how cute you all are. ¬†Say cheese!

Even though all six dolls are of different proportions and sizes, I think they all look adorable together, don’t you, too?

While the girls were modeling, I put them to “work” by having them add some Christmas spirit to my studio. ¬†Sugar (Fairyland Pukipuki) and Amelia Thimble brought around the jingle bells so that we all can add our own holiday ring-a-linging. ¬†Patience and Millie (by Kaye Wiggs) made tiny everlasting snowmen, and Rose (Boneka/Effner) brought some ¬†“heart” into the mix. ¬†Ivy, a handmade mohair bear from Warm Heart Bears showed she had some real paper cutting skills. ¬†How cute are those paper snowflakes! ¬†Great job, Ivy! ¬†Even the Christmas stripe-y dachshund carried a wreath for hanging.

We had a fun day today!

Patience’s ensemble¬†(SOLD) and Millie’s ensemble¬†are currently available on my website. ¬†Sugar, Amelia Thimble, and Rose’s will be available this coming weekend and into next week. ¬†Be sure to keep an eye out here and on Facebook if you are interested.

I hope that you are enjoying this first week of the holiday season. ¬†I love this time before Christmas; there’s anticipatory magic in the air.

“Christmas Snow”

Magical Christmas snow is what Patience is hoping for this year. ¬†There¬†is most definitely something wonderful about having snow on Christmas, and when it’s actually falling on Christmas Eve, well, that’s that’s pure magic.

Patience is wearing a dress made out of a colorful snowflake and stars print:  aqua, warm green, silver grey, and deep red.  A deep red organza ribbon sash is the perfect accent color for this set.

Patience’s cardigan is knit Santa Claus style with “fur” trim at the neckline, sleeve cuffs, and hemline. ¬†I’ve used a favorite aqua heather merino lace yarn for the body, and mohair/silk lace for the trim.

Embellishing handwork in the form of embroidered snowflakes, “icy” (clear) seed beads, and vintage red bugle beads (they pick up the dots on the dress) decorate the sweater in the front as well as the back. ¬†Bright red glass beads button the cardigan, if desired.

Patience’s needle felted snowman is made by me out of wool roving. ¬†He wears a tiny hand knit (in the round) deep red (merino/silk yarn) elf hat with an aqua tassel. ¬†His scarf is aqua wool yarn looped around his neck. ¬†Seed beads are carefully sewn on to give this snowman the perfect face and buttons. ¬†Patience has named her snowman Magic because of magical Christmas snow, of course.
