It’s Time to Get Back to My Knitting! I have dolls to make.

18 Inch Knitted Dolls
Please Finish Us!

I am finally taking a break from home renovations and such to sitting down with my knitting. Here are two dolls that need to be completed and dressed.   There is my Mom’s jacket I am altering . I was going to finish the jacket today, but the day is nearly over!

As for other projects, I’m looking forward to doing a series on upcycling: as I have a pile of clothes to re-construct. Skirts into blouses, that sort of thing. There is a pile of colorful t-shirts I’m thinking of turning into soft toys for giving to local children. Perhaps a trip to a local hospital’s children’s ward ? These are the thoughts on my craft agenda.

What to do with that box of Dad’s neckties? And that box of soft leather skins I’ve had for years? Then there are bins full of fabrics and projects set aside!

With an abundant stash of fabric , yarn and craft supplies to work with~ There is much to look forward to sharing with you as the year unfolds. The last of the painting can wait. It’s knitting time!

Hi! I'm a retired Bridal Designer, and am now spending my time getting back to pleasure crafts! My husband and I are still newlyweds, nearing our 3rd anniversary on October 2. I was single 33 years! We moved across the country from Phoenix Arizona, to Lumberton N. Carolina. The slower lifestyle agrees with us! Both empty-nesters, Jim and I are finishing the work on the 1950's bungalow style cottage. Fortunately, this home has a huge addition.... adding about 40% to the original size. Having to quit the sewing trade due to a disability, I spend my time on projects for home, family, and pleasure- as I feel able. Jim, now a Pastor/Judeo Christian Rabbi; is retired from the tile trade, and currently joins his friend in local ministry. This includes a bible study twice a week at a local prison. Join us as I document the journey in our changing lives!
