These are a couple of Christmas ornaments that I made.
I finished them a couple of months ago but they were for a gift so I couldn't show them.
I wanted them to be a surprise :o)
The mice are about 3" and made out of a wonderful upholstery velvet.
They are based on some vintage ornaments that I have.
(The mice also have tiny whiskers that don't show up in the photos and their collars are ribbon and beads)
These were such a joy to make. They were one of those projects that just went together like a dream. They didn't come out like I had planned but I really like the way they turned out.
(They pictures are not very good. The color is a bit off - but what else is new. Someday I will learn to take a good picture LOL)

She is a 10" silly little sock monkey.
Around here the boys are calling her "Bump in the Night"
They think that she looks scary!
Annie isn't scary but she does like to get up during the night and have a little snack. Maybe it is the refrigerator closing that scares them? :o)
Annie wears a little charm around her neck that says "Believe"
She believes that she is beautiful and wants to remind everyone to believe in themselves and in there dreams.

I love Autumn. It is my favorite season.
Only this year.......
I can't believe that it is mid October and is still 80 degrees!!!!!
It makes is so hard to be creative.
It took me three months to finish little Maggie. She is all dressed up in her pink, black and white knit suit waiting for the leaves to change color and fall gently to the ground. She may look like a girly girl but she loves to jump in the leaf piles :o)
Maggie is a silly sock monkey. She is apx. 10 inches (7 inches sitting), She. wears a beaded black ribbon around her neck, wrists and ankles. She also has pink polish on her fingers and toes.

I'm Wee Bit.

Hi - I'm Charlie and we are in the middle of a big decision here.
Yvette is getting ready for a class with elinor peace bailey this weekend.
She is really excited as it will be her first doll class. And she has heard what a fun teacher elinor is!
( I heard somewhere she doesn't capitalize her name? - is that true? )
Anyway we are trying to decide with pattern to make. (I know she should have started it already but .... ????
I don't know why she has waited. Since she waited so long to start this doll we didn't have time to buy a pattern so she is picking one from a magazine.
Here are the two patterns that we are choosing from.
Wee Bit Revisited
which is in The Cloth Doll magazine - Fall 1998.
Here are the fabrics combinations that she has chosen to possible make that one.
Aren't those tassel delightful!!! I love them and the orange is so wild.
OH! There is a glare on the magazine photo. Maybe I should learn to use the camera - instead of just monkeying around with it..tee hee :o)
The Keeper of Memories
which is in Cloth Dolls magazine - This magazine was a special edition magazine publish a while ago. It's an Australian magazine I don't think they made any more. Well at least we didn't find one :o)
Here are the fabric combination for that doll.
They are a little more elegant and they are so silky. The light one with flowers is very glittery!
I wonder which she will choose. I don't see any pink and black or red which are her favorite colors to use. I wish she would hurry up! She promised to finish me sometime in the future. I think I would like a button front shirt collar and a tie. I want to be a well dressed monkey! :o)Where did May go? It seems to have rushed by. The kids will be out of school in a week!!!!! Now lets get in that studio and start sewing!!!

I am doing a charm swap with a group of 12 ladies.
The idea is to make a charm out of any material that measure 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" or smaller...the only requirement is that they be able to be attached with a jump ring so they can be added to a charm bracelet or something.
I forgot to take a picture of mine before I wrapped them for shipping so now it will be a surprise when the ladies receive them.
I hope they are going to like them!
Swaps always make me so nervous! :o)

Apparently what I am supposed to do is start with 7 random facts/habits about myself post them in my blog and then choose 7 people to tag - and not forget to tell them in the comment section of their blog.
So here goes!!
1) I don't like to be bothered in the morning until I have had coffee and time to wake up.
2) I love miniature shoes and regular shoes for that matter.
3) I love unusual teapots.
4) I start a lot more projects than I finish.
5) I always wanted to ride on the cow when he jumped over the moon. I also wanted to know why he did that.
6) My favorite place is the beach. I love to watch the seals and dolphins play and to collect sea shells. I miss living close to it.
7) I married my husband in less than 1 month after meeting him - we have been married 18 years and I still love him and he is my best friend.

Nothing new comming out of the studio today!
Yesterday when the girl bears were making sandwiches they wouldn't let me help. So today I decided to make some toast.
Just because I am 2.5 inches tall they don't think I can do anything.
How long does this thing take anyway????
I'm hungry!! :o)
