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!

Bunny, revised

I ended up adding some brown and white to my tan bunny, to add details to the face, paws, tail, and body.  i think s/he looks nicer now.

The bunny is the perfect size for my 8 inch Paulinette dolls, and for Barbie dolls. I eventually want to sell these on Ebay or Etsy, and I plan to market them as pets/props for the dolls.

I crocheted the rose; it's life sized, but the bunny is only 2 inches long, lol, so it looks funny.

Needle felted bunny and new alpaca and wool fiber

I did this tiny little bunny the other day, but yesterday I bought new wool/alpaca, so now I may add to this bunny's facial features, using the new colours I have.
The bunny is made of alpaca roving, and he's so soft.  I like the feel of the alpaca better than the sheep's wool.

March Snow

It started snowing yesterday, continued all night, and now this morning, everything is covered with a fresh blanket of snow.  It's so pretty.

My parents left for Cuba early this morning; they'll be on a tropical beach later today. I hope their flight got off OK, with all this snow.  I haven't heard anything, so i'm assuming they got away ok.

Here are a few photos of my back yard, last night and this morning.  Mac loves the snow.
