Cute Doll

I made this lovely doll from Amigurumi BB. It wasn’t hard to make easy to follow pattern. I did change the dress it was way too short for my doll. I continued increasing stitches according to her pattern and added another frill. I also wanted body to her hair so I added bangs Technic to about four rows from the bottom of the head. It is strange for me to leave her without a mouth and a nose. My girls said leave her to the child’s imagination. So here is a picture of her.

Little Ted

Little Ted

I wanted a small teddy bear to attach it to a key clasp but this came big to use it for that. I made this little Ted from Sheep of Delight. I like it because I didn’t have to do a muzzle separate. I wanted to try and see how it is made attached to the head. the pattern is easy so give it a try. The end results is cute. I made the mouth different to hers. Here is my picture.

Which era would you like

Which era would you have  liked to live in? I personally like the clothes of gone with the wind. I believe they used them for going out to the ball, theater, visiting relatives and friends. For sure they couldn’t eat much because of the corset. In summer they  wore  different clothing or will they?  It would be so hard to go on trains,buses, cars and taxi in those large gowns. They had to use so much material to make a dress. They were very good seamstress to come up with all this styles. There are two photos one from gone with the wind the other one from these days. They still make them, these days for special occasions and brides. I like them very much, we might call them princess dresses.

Today’s times, I think the Indian women dress up very stylish. I like the combination of colors they wear. The sari and the way they throw the scarf around their neck. I was told that the skirt is holding up with safety pins. Would’ t it be embarrassing if it came undone. The lady told me occasionally it did happen. I think, what I truly like is for women to look nice in dresses. I am always in jeans because I find it comfortable.

restoration rocking chair

I saw this rocking chair outside a front garden of a house, and I had a big idea to restore it. Recycle it I thought. So I knocked on the door. A young guy opened the door, I asked him can I please have the chair that you have on your front garden. He said sure and helped me load it in my car. I thanked him and went home. I thought I wouldn’t do a good job dismantle it so I asked my man to do it. I bought material and new sponges cut to size. We gave the chair a good paint. We put it all together and here it is.  My eldest daughter loved it and she took it home in one of her bedrooms.
