Last night I had my knitting (and now sewing!) buddy over. Miss O and I had a crafting marathon! First we finished up two knitting projects that she had going - a knitted owl and a little knitted purse (forgot to take a photo of them - shoot!). Then I showed her these sweet dolls from my new favorite The Black Apple. She fell in love with them as did I and next thing I knew I was cutting out pattern pieces and she was picking out fabric. Three hours later we had this sweet little dolly…
She named her Mitsy. She was so excited and happy and let me tell ya so was I. I really want to make more! (go to The Black Apple and click on the label DOLLS and see all the cuties she's made. Very sweet!)
I'm so glad I had my time with little Miss O. It really cheered me up and got me out of a minnie slump. It's amazing what crafting can do. Working with my hands and letting my creativity run can do wonders for the soul.
