Introducing Cricket!

Here are some photos of my latest doll, Cricket! She is wearing a dress that I sewed using some beautiful fabric purchased from the lovely Amy at Pinked Fabrics on Etsy.  I just adore the Little Red Riding Hood theme!  The shoes were, once again, a challenge for me - more of a mental block than anything else.  Once I made up my mind to do it they went OK and I like the two-toned look of the wool felts.  I still hope to be able to crochet some booties in the future if I can figure out a pattern that looks good and doesn't take me FOREVER!  Practice will improve my crochet and knitting skills, right?  Anyway, here's Cricket!!

She got a little bored last night while I was trying to figure out my approach for her shoes, so she found a basket of hair ties and made a bit of a mess!

And, finally - the shoes are finished.  It's a bit late and the lighting is not at it's best, so she will have to wait until tomorrow for a photo shoot with the shoes.  Hopefully I will be able to post her on Etsy within a day or two!

My daughter's art!

Hi there! I have been busy working on (and have almost finished) my next doll to post for sale on Etsy.  I am also working on a design for some miniature versions of my dolls and hope to have one or more available on Etsy also.  In the meantime, my three year old (almost four year old) daughter has been making some "dolls" too:

She loves to create things and has also tried her hand at drawing our chickens!

I hope to post some sneak peaks of my new dolls very soon.  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

PS. Loving the roses from the garden:
