Only a little progress has been made on my "mystery project
" - you may be able to tell what it is now :D It won't be ready in time for Christmas gift giving, so will become a birthday present instead - I'm glad I have more time to work on it, lol!
Here's a project I kitted the other day - I added the prairie point after seeing THIS
project made by Emily (Emedoodle)
- she adds a trio of them to lots of her projects - mainly for FUN! I loved the idea, and have
borrowed her idea, but will call mine Prairie Doodles in honour of her inspiration :D
My first Black Apple dolly
-- she's quite easy to make but shoving those spindly arms and legs "inside" when trying to stitch her together was quite a challenge!
around I'll use patterned fabric for her legs, and will ask my friend Nancy to embroider a simple face for me. I may also increase the pattern size by about 15% to make her easier for my fiddly fingers. May try wool or wool felt for the hair instead of fleece. Will add some embellishments - ribbons or trim, buttons, maybe even a different hairstyle :D
Hubby and I are getting ready to head out to a friends' house for our traditional Christmas Eve Chinese food take-out get-together :D I hope everybody has a wonderful and safe Christmas and a fantastic 2013!
