Summer 2008

Nita Butler made this doll for me, she was my swap partner on Glitter Town Dollys. It turned out we both love yo yos, so I made the doll into a necklace. Used the small Clover quick yo yo maker. The tee shirt I got at a bazaar for fifty cents, I added the pink yo yo to it.

It's so hot and sticky I think I'll just make yo-yos. June 28, 2008

I made the little bag from yo-yos, the third week of August

If you can't bring yourself to throw away a scrap of material you will understand this doll. Beaded Liberace completed during the heat wave of early June 2008 in NYC

Inspired by this pin cushion tutorial

Inspired by a Barbara Stuart pattern

Crocheted scissors case. I modified an Annie's Attic pattern.
I'm working on the Elinor Peace Bailey Victorian doll Finished! I bought the two patterns at Pieces Quilt Shop in Renton, Washington. The doll on the left is the Retro Angel, I left off the wings because I thought she was magical enough. On the right is a doll from the Miniature Victorian and Pierrot pattern.
4.75 x 3.5 inch book with pockets on some of the pages.

This pattern adapted from one on Celt's Vintage Crochet site Instead of DMC size 8, South Maid Size 10 and steel crochet hook 5 was used. This is a doll bought at Lot-Less, it is 7 inches high.
