Charlotta Plusczok

Here is my Charlotta, by Heidi Plusczok. I redressed her in a dress made by Janet Wysong. She's a beautiful doll and has the new joints that Heidi made for this year's line.

We are 3 weeks old!

My little ducklings are growing fast! They are now three weeks old and they have to come inside at night because we separated them from Roger, since he decided they were competition and that he needed to bite them. Mean Daddy! He will visit with them through their pen fence, though. Mommy ducky still loves them. They now take two hands to lift up! They grow visibly day to day, and sometimes even from morning to evening! They are just starting to get tail feathers. I will get nicer photos sometime if it ever stops raining around here.

Clarissa Joy

My niece, Jewel, asked me to make her doll a little friend for her birthday. I used the Wee Wonderful's Chloe, Kit and Louise pattern to make a new little doll. Her name is Clarissa Joy and she enjoys playing outside, nature walks and looking at butterflies!

And then there were four!

The little dark brown one was hatched sometime during the night.  He's cute!  They all are.  I don't think that the two remaining eggs will hatch.  Hattie is still keeping one of them warm, though, so we'll see.  She has rolled the other remaining egg out of the nest.  The babies have already gotten into trouble--one popped through a tiny hole in the fence and was wandering around with the chickens and squeaking.  Luckily I was outside when that happened.  I'm not sure what the chickens would have done to him.  I've found all the holes now and there should be no more episodes like that.  Roger is not sure what to think of the babies.  If they run at him, he runs away, but other times he tries to push them around with his beak.  Daisy just ignores them and keeps out of their way.  It's too much commotion for her!  Here is the family when Hattie came out to get something to eat and drink.  Such a cute little family!

More ducklings!

SO CUTE!  I adore them!

Three more eggs are left and obviously, one is in mid-hatch right now.  That little guy is moving around nicely, so I expect more kids soon.  These little guys are just so cute.  I will try to post a video at some point.  They bounce around and scare the big ducks.  It's hilarious.

There's a little duckling this afternoon in the nest!  Hopefully he's healthy and will do ok--he's peeping.  Hattie won't let me look at him much, but he's pretty cute.  Sorry about the poor picture!  I didn't want to disturb them too much.

She arrived and she's so pretty! I got this doll from a fellow collector who was letting her go. She's perfect and has beautiful face paint. She's posing here with a little felted kitten I made.  Her name is Samantha.

Hattie, nesting

Hattie is expecting.  She is sitting on 7 eggs.  I'm not sure if any of them will hatch, or who on earth I will give them to if they do hatch, but I didn't have the heart to throw them out.  Roger has been very devoted to Hattie and here is trying to protect her from the camera.

Roger, guarding Hattie

What you can't see here is that Roger is quacking his head off at me!  And his head has some sort of dirt smeared on it; don't worry, it's not blood.  He just likes to be dirty and had his head in the mud this morning.

And here is Daisy's opinion on it all.
