Sorry for the lack of updates but we're in the middle of moving into our new house so there hasn't been much time for knitting or crafts. Once we get settled and organized I'll be adding new pretties to my shop! Thanks to those who keep checking my etsy shop!

Praying for Stellan

You may have noticed that a few of my items have the label "Praying for Stellan" at the end of them. If you haven't heard of Stellan, you can read his story here. Some of the proceeds from those particular items will be donated to Stellan's family to help with medical expenses.

Anyway, check out the shop, there is a darling new bonnet in white! I'm working on a few custom dolls right now so there hasn't been much time for knitting. We've also just bought our first home (yeah!) so that is also keeping us busy. And life in general with a 17 month old is crazy enough:) But I do have a few fun knitting projects half way done, so be checking the shop later this weekend for new pretties!

Here's the sweet 17 month old exploring the river

Meet the Emily Doll!

I've decided to just call this style of doll the Emily Doll. They'll all be similar size and style with just different hair, eye-color, dress and knee socks. These are my favorite doll yet! They have long legs with the cutest socks instead of tights. I've added a little rice to their stuffing and it makes them just the right weight. I'll be working on a few more but I just had to put the first one in the shop now!

Silk Bonnet

Oh you can't imagine how wonderful this silk bonnet feels! Its pearly and slightly shiny. It is the softest thing and such a pretty mix of colors. I got the yarn from a fellow etsian in Ireland! She hand paints her yarn. She called this yarn "mirror" so I'm calling the bonnet "reflections". And it really does remind me of a mirror. Its absolutely gorgeous and I just had to make it into a bonnet.
Go check it out in my etsy shop!

New Dollies

These sweeties and 7 others just as sweet were sent away to go to a show! But be checking the shop because I'm sure some dolls just like these will be showing up soon! They have a little bit longer legs than my original doll. And I'm also using wool felt now which is SO much better. I'm trying to keep costs down for people, so the price will remain the same for now.

Lots of legs and arms are being worked on these days! Most are actually headed to a craft show but some will make their way to my etsy shop so be looking! I'm just loving these large polk-a-dot knee highs! I'm trying out these dolls with longer legs. So far I'm pleased with the look.

Oooo, I just got some wool felt in the mail today and I can't wait to make them into hair for the dollies. They are way more fun colors than what local craft stores carry.
