The lovely Suchin arrived yesterday. I ordered mine with as a hand-painted set. Suchin is 12" tall (Chrysalis line) and jointed. She is sold with Sasha, a little 6" baby that will fit with the Riley line of dolls or can be used as a baby doll for Suchin. In the photos, they are both wearing their original outfits. There are a few more photos on my Flickr account.

Pine Trees!

For the girls' fans.  This is what trouble they get into when they are allowed to eat the pine tree.  Notice how Josie uses Anza as a step-stool and Anza tries to knock the tree branches down to her mouth with her front feet!

We've decided her name is Bobbin. She helped me finish up the monkey I was making for my nephew, Noah.   The monkey is from the book Amigurumi World by Ana Paula Rimoli.

This is my new little sewing fairy (Fairyland Realpuki Soso). Her name might be Bobbin. We haven't fully decided yet. It was dark and dim in the sewing room so we went outside to explore the flowers on the deck! I also have the "sleeping" face which I will photograph soon.

Ugh, a bug!

I snapped the camera at just the right time. Miss Anza was not impressed with this bug! She turned 1 the other day! In August I will have had her for a whole year!

In sad news, the Bad Bandito (raccoon) from the photo in a previous blog post killed Bonnie the chicken the other night. It was dusk and I had not locked them up yet. I heard a commotion and the raccoon was in the coop. Bonnie was broody so she was not roosting on the roost. I feel very badly about it and wish I had closed the coop earlier. It was 90 degrees that day and the ladies were hot, so I left their door open for a little while longer. It just goes to show that in 15 minutes, tragedy can happen. So we are now extra vigilant with the ladies and they are getting locked in at 7:30 whether it's hot, cold, raining or what. They are good chickens and we want them to live a nice, long life and hopefully die of natural causes. At least Bonnie had a happy life and was much loved.  It happened on May 28th, Memorial Day, at about 8:30 PM and only a few days before Bonnie's third birthday.  I have been too sad to mention it till now.

Rest in peace, Bonnie Belle.
