Waldorf Dolls

I have to tell you, I am in love with this style of doll! They're just beautiful! Maybe it's because they're made from all natural materials, maybe it's their simplicity... I think it's both. There is something so "enchanting" about them.
I came across these sites today that sell waldorf supplies, kits, pattern and toys. I know where my time this week will be spent, lol!
Dancing Rain They have downloadable patterns, and OH MY GOSH, isn't everything just so cute?!?!
A Child's Dream Come True I simply have to make Kate one of these dolls!
Magic Cabin Lots of toys to choose from!
One of the fondest memories that I have of my Great Granny was her love of dolls. She had them all over her home, and even had a spare bedroom filled with them. Boy did I spend hours and hours playing with all her dolls.
Sorry, no pics, just rambling today.

Bunny in a hoodie

I guess these are the signs of the times... I've knitted a bunny wearing a hoodie. I couldn't wait to add her to my sweet little shoppe, so if you're interested in her (and I know you are! *Ü*) you can purchase her here.

Such a cute hoodie!!

I hope everyone is having a beautiful weekend. We got a flurry of snow yesterday. I am so anxious to get out and play in the dirt. My tastebuds are watering for some homegrown veggies.

A little note about my next shoppe update. It might be the end of the month before I add more toys. I got an order for 3 custom bunnies, so that will be taking most of my time.

Till next time,

The Preemie Project

Ok, so do you remember me mentioning The Preemie Project? Well, I've finished my first item! Yay! It's so cute and you wouldn't believe how small it is. Here it is with my hand inside so you can compare. I have a hard time imagining this would fit a precious little baby.

There were yarn guidelines so I had to knit it with acrylic. Anyone who knows me knows I'm a natural kind of girl. It's super soft though, and I hope some little girl out there has a warm noggin wearing this hat.

I plan do make the same amount of boys and girls items, so I suppose my next item will be for a boy. I do love pink though. ;o)

See them here.

Someone's been sleeping in my bed!

And he's still there!

This is Patches, our 21 month old male cat. He's such a sweetheart. He's trying to keep me from making the bed.

What a rascal!

Ok, the bed is made, but he's still on it...

I've been tagged!

There she goes again..... taggin' me. That Janna of Country Creek Creations.
I have to tell 5 things about myself.
1. My very first job (besides baby sitting) was at Dairy Queen. That job lasted 3 days, man I hated it!
2. I just celebrated my 11th wedding anniversary.
3. I am completely head over heels in love with my kids, pumpkins, knitting, cats and strawberries.
4. One of my favorite dishes is eggplant parmesian.
5. I experimented with vegetarianism during my teen years... And, still ponder the idea.
Now let me think, who am I going to tag?
