This little stool is made from using coffee cans so easy and Rhiannon loves it.She can sit at the table using the stool in a chair or just the right height for the coffee table.I am no a seamtress so don't look too close but so far it has held up under stress LOL
I have a new pattern in the works Angel of Stress she is a little ornament appx 9" can't find my tape measure:)Her skirt is full of silver kisses so of course she is the protector of Chocolate.. she is holding tiny silver bells..very easy pattern her face is paper clay simple instructions included in the pattern, no face mold needed her hair is appoxie sculpt because apoxie sculpt is stronger then paper clay..I am not sure when I will finish the pattern as I am not as fast as Sherry..LOL hopely before Thanksgiving. I got the offical word my Gypsy doll will travel to ADQ for a photo shoot with Pamela and the winning dolls. She also sold so will be shipped directly to her new owner once she is finished.I enjoyed this challenge and will try again next year..
Hey everyone, I'm home but moving slow. We had a wonderul time I love SF everything at your finger touch my kinda town,I knew there was more to life then Iowa haha.Scotti's place is beautiful and the perfect location, right downtown.. We had brunch on my birthday at the wharf OMG the food was just too wonderful.We had clam chowder,then boil crab then not sure what I had but a combo of all the seafood in a red sauce mmm I really miss good seafood. No pic's Al put the camera in the luggage instead of the carry on, someone stole my batteries, but left theirs tossed in the luggage broke the end off where the batteries go so now I am out scouting for a new camera maybe I can save the pic's from my memeory card.( but will have to wait for someone smarter then me to down load from the card) I cannot live without my camera..I discovered this Holloween night when I got the camera out to take pic of the girls..I thought it was on the camera dock charging LOL!!!Have a great weekend!
Good Morning I'm going to try catch up. Our company (cousins) Bobbi and John from The Dalles, OR. have come and gone we had a wonderful visit and my mother had a great birthday .A couple of pic below. Rhiannon enjoys everyone's birthday a couple of pic's from hers too. My birthday is Sunday, Bobbi brought me a early gift a plateau with a schnapps set she also included peach schnapps mmm good.I was thrilled. Also included is a pic of me and Wee sipping our ? we turn the can so mum and Da would not know haha I usually don't show my face but loved this pic of Wee.I really am cuter hahahaha Al and I are off to SF CA. for 5 days leaving on Thur. Visiting Scotti (to us) John to all others.This will be my first for shopping in the downtown area, look out "Starbucks" here I come.See y'all when we return..I will try to remember pic's.
Well I am up roaming the house at 4:42 it must be an age thing .When I was young I could never seem to get enough sleep. I think we should form an " "All Night Roaming" club, for those of us with too many thoughts at wee hours of the night roflol!!! Maybe we could compare notes, make a doll or just chat ..I had a little snack "mayonise and crackers" ( ever tried that snack) haha and a glass of milk hoping this will help but no I will be so sleepy about 2 in the afternoon. I am preparing for my cousins coming in for my mothers 90th. birthday.So got plenty to get finished by Sunday.Of course I have to clean at least the bathrooms, haven't done much since Linda's visit. We are starting to winterize around here, forecast for Wed night 31 degrees oh my all flowers need to be in by then. I have bunches of house plants and have been bringing them in all week. Some outside bulbs have to be dug and stored for the winter, this is a real pain expecially when the plant still looks so good.We ordered two cords of wood so that will keep us for almost all the winter months.I am just wondering what happen to Fall. I finished my ornament dolls, Pat said everything has gone to print so anxious to see what y'all think.Sherry said they will come out in the next issue..I hope some of you enjoy making a few for the holidays. Also gone is my Gypsy challenge I am always anxious to see how it is displayed lol she is suppose to stand with her hands on her hips as she is pulling her skirts up, head back as tho she is dancing but who knows roflol!!! her name is Dance Gypsy Dance.I just hope she is returned in good shape. I like her, not many of my dolls I like but I put a lot of beading in this one. I wrote this last night , no nap and here I sit... pic's to follow..gotta send something to look at after all this boring news.I will put up birthday photos next week .I am trying to keep this blog going but sometimes not much to say.

Oh how exciting to come to my blog and see so many of my friends sending messages almost like chatting or coming home:)Thank you for leaving a message. I didn't get to the blog yesterday the kids come over (Tatum and family)we had a great visit , I am so in love with those babies it is unreal.We love to have them over or any company so anyone want to visit:)I forgot pictures again, dang it.We loved having Linda and David. Mary O. I don't really have much to say either but just daily life.Maybe all I will have to do is print this out for a Christmas letter roflol!!! that I have never done but who knows LOL I went to our only dept. store Yonkers today looking around at the makeup (Clinque)the lady set me down and went to work I felt drab and I must have looked that way. I call it washed out LOL...I have never had someone so nice and helpful she seem to really injoy her job.( Judi she was in the army 4 yrs ago,she made me think of you very pretty and together) When she finished I was amazed what she did for so little I told her I wanted real natural colors.No base makeup, she had this big brush and bronzed away.I bought everything she used encluding all the brushes. Oh and this little tube of cream you dab above your upper lip removes wrinkles.. yea right hahahaha but she was just good at this stuff. Al was amused but really like what she did.This all is very unlike me but it was a good pick me up. I have been kinda down lately I'm having BP problems that they keep saying will take a while for this new med to work.I put it down as another age thingie.Oh my I am not the sickie type and do not like medications. I come home and cleaned up all my flower beds I always do gardening when I am dwelling on something keeps my mind busy. We have a full bath upstairs can't wait to take pic.my very own tub NO SHOWER woohoo.. I was called to jury duty for the month of August what a bummer, so we have postponed our little get away to Eureka Springs AR. until Oct.I love that town and can't wait. I am hoping they have a few craft shows going I think Oct. is a good month for such.. Thank y'all for your nice comments I can't wait to show my Gypsy doll and was going to put her up but Sherry said I couldn't:( You know when you make something or I do I just want to show everyone not digging for compliments I just get so excited .... I do have a pic to put up this little table is built into my cabinet in my sewing room for my keyboard,it was so ugly I decided to cover it it buttons, now all I need is to paint the edges and put a two part apoxie, I want the finsh to be thick and clear.This idea comes from HGTV I love that show!!
Thank you everyone for your nice comments on my blog. I think I will just write something on this blog daily,I am not on many list anymore so this gives me an out. I had a wonderful visit from auntie Linda and David but just way too short I had so many things planned but will have to make up for it on a later date. It was just the perfect visit. One thing for sure we was not short for words and I got lots of hugs. The only thing I regret I took NO pictures well duh!! I was just so excited it never cross my mind. I put up 5 bags of sweet corn today and kept out some for dinner tonight. This is just the beginning I hope to have the freezer full soon.If you have never had Iowa sweet corn you are really missing out. I wish I could send y'all some.
I am busy also doing an article and the how to for my pin/ornament dolls for the magazine DollCrafter. This article will come out in Dec. I have also finished my doll for the Gypsy Challenge I call her Dance Gypsy Dance, I am pleased with the way she turned out. I love the beautiful fabrics and wonderful embellishments I got to work with.It was a lot of fun and I do love the challenge.
This is Maida she was inspired from a painting my son had painted on canvas in Thailand.She sits in my living room I love strange dolls,she is my all time favorite and about the only thing I have made for myself.Of course if the price is right she could go roflol!!
