Last Pattern

Just finished listing the last of my patterns.  I do have a few more, but they're all before 2000 and need revamping.  

One of the big things they need are the diagrams describing the steps of how to.

Which, if you think about how long ago that was and that I started this venture in 1999.   So for today I think this is good and who knows you may see one pop up some time?!?

It would be interesting to re-make one of them, maybe even take notes and a new pic at the end???  Oh' gosh did I just challenge myself????  Maybe! :)

Five days into the New Year

Well here we are...........five days into the New Year!  I caught a flu bug at the end of the year and today am finally starting to feel like myself again.  Well, still doing a little hacking but mostly feel better.  

I have listed another pattern at my etsy shop. 

I have numerous request to bring back some of my patterns.  I listed a bunch before Christmas and may have one or two more to list.  

It's kind of fun to look back and see where I've been and how far I have come.  Plus I also wanted to "thank you" all for your support and continued support.  Because I could not have done it without you.  

I have lots of UFO's to finish, but also have some new ideas rolling around in my head.  I'll keep you posted.  Happy 2018!!

Christmas Troll is done

Well, she is finally done! I'm thrilled with how she turned out.  She measure 8" from head to toe.  I always learn something new when making one of my Trolls and she was no exception.  I learned how to make tiny bows using a fork.  

What did we ever do without Pinterest?!?  Yesterday I ordered Christmas cards with my new Troll as the cover.  What fun!

I love when I get pics

I want to thank Zsuzsa for sending pics of her version of Oggie.  He turned out great.  This is Ragnar.  

Listed some of my Patterns on Etsy

Well, I have spent the last several days converting some of my patterns to PDF's.   I will try to do a few more in the future.  This is for my past patterns only though.  I have no intentions on writing patterns anymore.  Sorry!!!

I hope you enjoy some of my past work. 

Shortie is now available as PDF at my Etsy store.

No explanation needed

Finally getting to the face and hair

Eyes, change everything!  Next some color to the face, ears and hands.  I played with hair yesterday, but nothing was quite right?!?  Maybe today?

Must go find some miniature lights and other Christmas do-dats.

Hand stitching has begun

I absolutely love this part.  I'm using an applied method for the clothes.  Yup, it's just what it sounds like.  Hold the fabric to the body, adjust to your liking, pin, cut and sew.

8 inches tall

Can you stand it?!?  I totally am loving how this little girl is turning out.  The clothing and accessories are always the fun part for me.  This is when cloth becomes a little character of sorts.

This is a Christmas troll, sitting on a large package.  Is he entangled in ribbon or Christmas lights???  Guess we'll find out soon.
