Some New Faces

Little Ireland

Cuddly Giselle

I just added these cuties to the shop. 

 I've had a bit of a bummer week. I won't
go into all the boring details but it's been challenging. 
The latest riff is that my PC bit the dust 
(which is never a good thing) but to make things
worse, my back up lap-top is now struggling.

It's a good thing these little girls bring so much joy to my day. I woke
 up today with a new appreciation for the simpler things:
 fabric, needle and thread.

Please bear with me while I figure out a solution. 

I hope your week is filled with nothing by healthy, happy moments 
and no technological disasters...heehe

International Inspiration

Beautiful and picturesque China - it seems a world away

I've always been fascinated by Chinese dress and culture

I found these sweet illustrations on line.

...and then there's my doll.  I think little 'h' turned out pretty cute.

I've been wanting to create more dolls with international flare.  
 I was so  excited when asked to create a little doll for Hadley.
 Modern but still capturing her Chinese heritage.

Little Birdie...How I've Missed You!

My original 'Belle the Blue Bird' design
A new little pillow just for Sweet Emma
All done!

It's been way to long since I've been able to create
a custom pillow.  

It was such a nice reprieve working on this special one
for a dear customer.  She's welcoming a new little girl
into her life. A little sister for Landon. They wanted to 
use the same baby bedding, so she asked me to create
a girly pillow just for her precious little Emma.

I used some of the original fabrics but threw in some
adorable 'girly' prints.

Crochet Away!

I'll goo and gaa over anything crochet! 
An art form I'd love to learn.

Check out some of the most amazing 

Rose Hip
 Rose Hip has the most dreamy pillow cases. 
I love each and every one!

I could just stare at these all day. 
Who'd want to get out of bed when surrounded by these beauties?

Freya Toys
  Tanya at Freya Toys is astounding.  The details are unbelievable.

Click here to see Herbst Handmade
AMY of Herbst Handmade creates unique and
darling patterns. This is one of my favorites.

I think I'll have to start small, maybe a mini doll blanket and see
how I do...wish me luck!

I hope these beauties inspire you in some small way. 
I know they inspire me!

Happy Friday! - Dianne
