Pretty in Purple

Here's Tamsin in her new little outfit that I embroidered on Sunday and just finished putting together today.
Here's the detail on the hat.
The hat is made from a pattern in my new Japanese craft book For Sweet Baby, from page 33. The pattern is really for an infant, but it worked well for Tamsin by just not enlarging it. I used the pattern as it is originally sized in the book.

Newest Craftings

I received some new watercolor pencils for Christmas and decided to paint/draw one of my favorite birds, the Rosebreasted Grosbeak. We had 6 or 7 at the feeder last spring.

This is my swap gift for my Valentine Swap partner on my miniatures group. She made me a fantastic vignette and I will post a photo of that tomorrow. Everything in the photograph is handmade by me (although I used a printies file for the Valentine Album, and the tray is a brooch back with the pin removed).
