My First Holiday Ensemble, “Festive and Frosty” for Rose

Hi there! I hope this post finds you well and enjoying the season leading up to the year-end holidays. This time of year goes so fast for me! I am making a conscious effort to savor these cozy fall days, although the time is still flying by.

Towards the end of August I began creating my holiday ensembles. My petite (10″ tall) Boneka doll named Rose received my first holiday ensemble for 2021 and she’s been waiting for months to show you her festive outfit.

We haven’t gotten any snow yet here in northern Illinois. Having just recently gotten our first frost it still seems too warm for snow, but Rose is ready for the first snowflakes.

Rose is wearing a cuddly mohair sweater and headband ear warmer. I embroidered some berries and pine boughs on the yoke. Tiny gold jingle bells adorn the tie ends of her ear warmer.

Her dress features the tiniest snowmen and pine trees with a border of delicate cotton lace around the hemline. She wears tights in a fun kelly green and around her wrist is a jingle bell bracelet.

Rose is absolutely smitten with her tiny needle felted snowman. I think the hopes of me making one for her may be the reason she picked out this snowman fabric for her dress. lol What do you think?

Rose is a precious one, isn’t she?

What are you up to this fall, or is it spring by you? I’d love to hear from you! ❤️ Sending you hugs from Rose and I. 🤗

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.
