We R Family....

...I got all my sisters and me! Remember that song? If you do, your age is speaking! lol
I've designed this new doll pattern in honor of me and my 3 sisters. Once four of us, now there are three.....The oldest of us, MaryAnn, is sitting at the feet of Jesus!

Well, this pattern is for the four sister dolls. They are in the following sizes: 12 inches, 11 inches, 10 inches, and 9 inches. Click on the picture for a nice, BIG size photo!!
These are just the cutest little dolls and you'll want to make bunches of them. I can make several in a day actually! Their cute as a button faces are easily done and they all are made with the same hair. I just love this stuff, I "discovered" it a few years back and will be offering it for sale also. It's just the right size for smaller dolls and it's a faded vintagey red. You can make all four dolls with one package of hair.
This pattern will be available to ship by the end of the week.
Pattern is $10.50 + shipping.
Vintage Red doll hair is $3.75 + shipping.

Getting really close to 100.......

.......Patterns that is!
I'm six patterns away from having 100 in my line of designs. Whew! That's alot of late nights and long days!
The way I figure is I should be hitting the 100 mark this spring. Soooo, stay tuned 'cuz I'm gonna have a BIG giveaway to celebrate. This will be open to everyone on my email list!

Now, since we are talking about 100's, my Gram is gonna be celebrating her 102nd birthday next month!! Wow, can you believe it?!! You'd never know it to look at her and she doesn't take a single bit of medication, never really has. Healthy as can be and she tells anyone who'll listen, "I've still got all my own teeth"!!
She attributes her long life and good health to hard work, clean living, and most of all, God!!

Lazy day....

Today we went to church, had a bit of a brunch afterward and headed on home. It's rainy/freezy sorta so a good day to just be lazy. I generally don't like to work on Sunday and honor the Lords day with rest and relaxation. However, I might be taking this to the extreme! I've been lazing around with a couple magazines, a really GOOD book with the T.V. on as well. Oh, did I mention the fudge?! LOL!
DE-licious chocolate/peanut butter fudge...keeps calling my name and I've yet to refuse it!

I'm thinking now a nap might be in order.....................!

A giveaway and a get away!!

I'm getting away for a few days. We are leaving this afternoon to head to Lancaster, PA. Time for me to stock up on fabric and whatever else I can find! A trip to Hummelstown to the Old Factory is included! WHOOHOO!

Now for the giveaway, here's the pic as promised. She's a sweetie, just barely 12" long. A blonde, blue eyed raggedy doll. Kinda different for me, not so primitive. Her body and face have been stained, her clothes have not. I'm experimenting with some new styles here.
Rules for the giveaway are in the previous post, drawing will be held on Thursday, Jan. 21.
Well, I hope you like her!

Happy New Year

Okay, so I'm a few days late! My hope for you is that your new year will be filled with good health and happiness.

As I ponder the past year, I can't help but think of all the good things in my life. There have been many bumps in the road this last year, my sister's passing, serious health issues (me), and assorted smaller things. BUT, the good always outweighs the bad.
I have a GREAT hubby, I have two WONDERFUL grown children, a WONDERFUL daughter-in-law(like a daughter to me), and two of the CUTEST grand babies you have ever seen! In addition, I have a good Mom, Granny (who is just 2 months from 102 yrs), two sisters and their families and many nieces and nephews too.

WOW! I'm rich beyond words..............!!!!!!
Thanks be to God!

Now as all proud Grammies do, I have to show some pics!
