The rabbits are coming!

I've been bitten.  By the creating bug again.  I've got several new designs in the works that are also patterns.
I'm probably even gonna put one of these rabbits on ebay tomorrow.
Here's a lil peek, I love the way these turned out and they can be made standing or sitting and there's also those big eggs too!

Anyhow, here's some pics for you, pattern should be along in a day or two with a few others including the "Love" raggedies!

When I get big

"When I get big, and have a baby, I'm going to that hospital you were at.  They have the best chocolate cake and you get the softest babies".......quoted by Sophie Ann Mills - age 5

Life is so simple when you are young......*sigh*

A budding dollmaker!

I feel it's so important to encourage creativity in children.  There's more in life than just plunking them down in front of the T.V. or handing over video games.
For Christmas we purchased ALOT of art supplies for my 6 yr. old granddaughter and my 3 yr. old grandson.  They've always had a box on a shelf in my sewing room with their supplies, they know just where to go for them and so enjoy using them.
Sophie wants to sew like Grandma.  So I bought her a little kid sewing machine and she's delighted but she wants to go right to the "big" machine! 

Patience, I tell her, you need to practice first. 

As she familiarizes herself with the machine, her 3 yr old brother Holden asks, "Grandma, is this art supplies?"....hoping for a turn himself!  To which Sophie replies, "NO, this is girl supplies"!!!
Right away, she wants to make a dress for her sister, Lola, who is due to be born anyday.
Oh, if it were only that simple!
