Handmade Bunny

This bunny was made from a pattern in a baby crochet book and he will be for my new niece or nephew. He's so soft and cuddly. I made him from Baby Teri yarn.

Pipos Baha Kitty, home at last!

She arrived last weekend and I had a great time making clothes for her! She's a Pipos Baha, 8" ball jointed resin doll made in Korea. Mine came with green eyes, although I may buy blue ones for her, too. She looks great in pink! The embroidery design came from Vintage Transfer Finds (thank you!!) and the apron itself is sewn from a vintage hankie. The dress is from a Rosemary Ionker pattern.
Here is a slightly closer view with slightly different lighting filters. I couldn't decide which photo I liked better so they're both here.

Here she is in her underthings, which were fun to embellish!

Kitty for Adoption

This kitty needs a home and has less than 10 days before her euthanasia! She's really nice but needs to be in an only-cat household because she is FeLV positive. Please send me an email or message if you or anyone you know is interested in adopting her!

UPDATE! She's sprung from jail and has been adopted by a very nice lady!

What I did this weekend

Here is what I worked on this weekend. It's a prize for one of my favorite groups, Riley's Friends. There will be a Halloween costuming contest for our dolls.

A lovely fall day

Today is a bright, sunny, colorful early fall day in upstate New York. I am enjoying my day off and looking forward to a vacation in a few weeks! We will be visiting Cape Cod and staying here:

Today was a good day for lounging around on the porch swing in the sun, and for enjoying the last flower in the garden, a pretty magenta aster.
