If you could be anything

So, I saw this post and thought it was really intriguing. The question was asked if you "could be anything when you grow up" what would it be? Good question! I think that the person who gets to choose the crayon color names would be great! "Hey what do you do?" "Oh, I name crayon colors." "Oh...I see."

A little crafting

I had a chance to work on a few little presents last week, one being the Kit doll. The clothes are almost finished, the birthday girl will even receive a reversible smocket to match the dolls reversible dress. S has really enjoyed playing with the doll, so much that she is getting her own doll as soon as the gift doll is completed.

Also completed over the weekend was a little crayon roll and drawing pad for another little birthday girl.

I just bought this fabric to make curtains for my living room. I'm currently envisioning matching pillows and place mats for the dining room table that is in close proximity to the window. The fabrics for those will be made from this, this and possibly this. I can't wait for it to get here! The colors are not in my usual color palette but, I really liked the print, we'll see how it all pulls together!

The Kit doll (in progress)

We have a somewhat busy next few weeks, and I've been itching to make a new purse! I've been searching through my patterns and some online patterns, and nothing is jumping out at me. Plus I have a few gifts to make and a sling for a friend, not much time to make something on a whim! Tonight I started making the Kit doll from the Wee Wonderfuls pattern. It's quite cute. The yarn hair was interesting, but it really makes the doll. I'm looking forward to getting her finished and making some clothes for her! I'll post more pictures when she's finished!

Christmas time is such a blur.

You can spend so much time preparing for a date, and then it's fast. That's how it went for me anyways! There were lots of handmade goodies this year. I will spare you too much explanation, and just post some photos instead! Happy New Year.
