Enjoying Creating

Rainy day here in Vermont, USA....... what a great opportunity to work in my sewing/craft room! So many makings in progress, WIP from along time ago, some special orders and even something for me!

First a photo my daughter sent me of Lizzie and her American Girl doll in "THE SWEATER", you know the one.....from my last post. (fudging at its best)

                                                    See my sleeping angel

I've been working on some special orders for my baby buntings for the shop in my area. This woman wanted two buntings for her twins, one in pinks and one in lavenders. So I came up with these. The shop owner said she would be pleased!

                                         Oops, upside down!

                                     Added buttons to the tails this time instead of heart patches.
                                      I love buttons, like so many of you.

Now I'm in the process of making a few Halloween/Autumn buntings......just for FUN

                                           One for me and one for a dear friend : )

I also have had some orders for my crochet hooks, so I made a batch on Sunday, they will be in my Etsy shop very soon!

                                          You all know what they look like

                                         Oh my, another photo sideways

As I was getting ready to glaze them, I wanted to try another top coat, so I made up a little something and then coated it with gloss. It turn out like this

See the little mushroom. I made a hole before baking it and now it's a candle holder in the forest!

                                                     Cute little toadstool

                                                   Maybe one too many photos.......sorry

Well, this is getting to be rather a long post. So I should go..........but maybe you want to see one more finished projects. This is a knitted project that is really really for me. I started it the end of last winter so it will be perfect for the coming cold weather.

I have to apologize in advance for all the selfies (photos), but I wanted to show the cowl off.

Okay now, way too much showing off. It's just been so long since I have finished things and it really feels so good. Although, I have a lifetime of projects to finish but I'm on a roll!!

Thank you for visiting, it's always so nice to see that you have popped in and I love all the comments you leave me. So does my sweet Jack!

xoxoRobin and Jack
