Pumpkin Doll

A co-worker saw the sweet pea doll and fell in love.  She made a special request for a dark skin doll as a gift for her first grand baby.  How can I say no?

Basket for a puppy

A colleague adopted a 5 weeks old Yorkshire Terrier puppy.  I helped to make a dog bed for this little cutie.



I found a basket ,sewed and lined it with comfy bedding, also made the small blue blanket.  



It is like a nest for the puppy, keeping it safe and warm.

Stitch Markers

The pattern of the red coat asks for placement of many stitch markers.  I actually finished what I had and have to buy some more.
I purchased my old stitch markers from Joann Craft shop, and I paid about $6 for a bag of 20.  I  bought 2 bags.  This time I looked around on-line and decided to try a ebay seller from China. $1.13 for a bag of 100 of mixed color.  It took longer to arrive but they were the same size and shape as my old ones.

Just want to share this with you.  If you are not in a hurry for stitch markers, it is big saving if you buy on-line.

I have to place the markers in pairs, so the mix color works out great.

A good holiday

Some might look at the holiday in terms of gifts, the number of days off work, and the amount of food and drink.

Me?  It's knitting.  I was totally spoiled. Hubby took care of all the shopping and cooking; I can just knit.
 It's the best holiday ever.

Happy 2015

Happy New Year everyone.  It has been a long while since my last visit in blog land.  It is good to be back. 

2014 has been an eventful year for us. 

Our place was flooded.  
Luckily the water came inside the garage but not the house.  The cars were flooded and we had to write off one of them. It took us a little while to clean up the place and sort ourselves out. 

We celebrated Poppy's 10 years birthday and our 20 years wedding anniversary. 
Rescued a little terrapin from our yard.

Let's hope 2015 is going to be a more peaceful year. I am looking forward to spend more time on my craft work and on my blog.

Till the next time, sending you my best wishes for the New Year.
