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.

Hello, Hello, and Hello!

Aww, it’s been oh, so very long!!!  I am sorry!  I’ve had so much going on with my health since September.  I’m not ready to get into it all right now, but maybe in the future or in little bits.  Not sure what I’m comfortable with putting on the wide open web.  I am healing and feel good right now.  Please add a comment to this post or send me an email.  (I added a contact form under the tab at the top of this blog.)  I’d love to hear from you.

Truthfully, I haven’t been interested in my dolls and creating things for them over these past months, so many other things to worry about.  It wasn’t until my website hosting expired two weeks ago that I started to miss all of this.  Trying to find a new and affordable site for my small business (which I didn’t), then figuring out how to get my patterns for sale on Ravelry and posting about that on Facebook.  Well, all the love and comments from that post and subsequent posts rekindled my love for creating and my dolls.  I’ve missed you all very much!

First up is getting some unfinished patterns (finally) finished and published.  I’ve gotten rusty at the process; there are quite a few steps, but I am trying.  Adding to my brain being rusty, Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop are barely working on my laptop.  They’ve updated and are charging a subscription price now.  *sigh*

I want to wish all of you a ‘lucky’ St. Paddy’s day!  Here is my little Fairyland PukiPuki named Sugar looking as pixie-ish as she possibly could.  (Photo from 2014)

Bye for now. ❤ Sending you hugs from me.

 

Rainy Days

Sugar won’t need her sprinkling can today; it’ll be a rain-filled thunderstorming kind of day here in northern Illinois.

Spring Garden 9 cell Collage poemThese dresses are from 2014.  Sugar’s itty bitty everlasting embroidered bulb garden is filled with daffodils, tulips, hyacinths, and grape hyacinths.

Sugar is a tiny Fairyland Pukipuki BJD.  You can find them here.

How is your garden growing?  Sugar and I would love to know.
