Welcome to my blog

If you enjoy finding a lot of different outlets for your creativity, then we may just be kindred spirits.
This blog is an outlet for my interest in miniatures, crochet, plastic canvas, and many other various arts and crafts.

I also love walking, taking digital photos, and most recently, have rediscovered an old love...bike riding! I purchased an amazing new bike, a comfy Townie by Electra this summer, and have been having a grand time exploring the area as though for the first time. It's like being a kid again!

If you enjoy any of these things too, pour a cup of coffee and tea, sit down, and join me.

Take care!

Sewing swap pics

I joined a sewing swap, where we had to make silly dolls for one another.  The pattern was a simple dog bone shape, with braided arms and legs, and big eyes.
I added eyelids, hair, slippers, and a coat or housecoat.  I named her "Sleepy Sally" because the eyelids make her look sleepy.
She seemed lonely, so I crocheted her a kitty cat.  I named the cat "Bitty Buddy", after my swap partner's cat, Buddy.  I hope she'll like the doll and cat.
The hairstyle is cool because it can be worn up or down or in ponytails.Here she is, with her hair up in a ponytail.
(I didn't like the braided legs...they seemed too small, so I stuffed some baby slippers and attached them with bracelet elastic.  That way, my swap partner can remove them if she doesn't care for them.  I think they're cute.)
