Another craft show and another year rapidly coming to a close.
I must say this has been a very good year for my crafting and dolls. I am truly blessed.
Below are some pictures of our items done by my talented sister-in-law, Belinda, and myself.
The shelves were full of pillows both wool appliqued and hand embroidered.
Wool table tops, candy cones.
Of course Christmas dolls, angels, snow girl and boy dolls.
Santas, snowmen and angel ornies.
Snowman wreath and plenty of wool appliqued ornaments.
Framed wool appliqued pictures and hand stitched ornaments.
A little bit of everything!
And on the last day - ta da! Just about everything went on it's way to their new homes.
And now we start all over for a new year! Of course first with a break to enjoy our Christmas and the beginning of a New Year with our family and friends. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
May the wonder of his love
touch you this Christmas
and bring you peace
and happiness in the New Year.

Hello friends! My holiday craft show is underway as I write this and so far all is going great.
I took some photos after the set up and will post them soon.
Meanwhile, I finished these dolls yesterday. After posting them in Etsy I normally will come here to post my new dolls. But I had trouble all morning trying to get into blogger.
Well as you can see they have already sold. I am feeling so blessed!
Thank you all for your wonderful comments.
With Thanksgiving day upon us here are a few things I am thankful for: my family, friends and this country that we live in. The opportunties given to me to be able to create my crafts. I am also thankful for my wonderful customers.
Here's wishing you all a very blessed Thanksgiving day.
Until next time - take care.

Her she is - my first Christmas Annie. I took some time off from my crafting for my show to get this Annie on Etsy.
I love this fabric. The print says "Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house not a creature was stirring not even a mouse."
Ms Christmas Annie is ready (she really doesn't care for Halloween - lol) with her stocking.
Have a wonderful week!
Until next time - hugs,

Yes friends, it's been 2 months since my last post. But as you'll see - I have been super busy crashing (as usual) and finishing up some crafts for my upcoming show in mid-November.
One would think after eight years of doing this that I would not wait until mid August to start working for a whole week craft show in November. But yes, that's me alright!
A few dolls will be in the show. This little one comes with a snowman friend.
Ms. Holly with her bag of goodies.
Numerous hanging pillows and wool ornaments.
I bought this cute pattern by Liberty Creek Primitives, Christmas Buddies. They hang on a tree or anywhere in your home. Made several of these and just love them.
I did couple of the stump Santas by Reets' Rags to Stitches. Pattern called "Little Santa Things." Love her patterns.
These little guys are from Country Whims' pattern, Baby Frosty. So cute and easy to make. Made a dozen of these.
More small pillows and stitched ornaments - fa la la la la.....have that tune in my head!
Of course can't leave out my Christmas Angel ornaments. Don't they just look like angels! Have to do some more of these.
And last but not least, I love doing spiritual and inspirational hand stitched pillows like this.
Share Faith - Offer Prayer - Gather Hope
This is it for now. I have many more, but I didn't want to bombard you with all of my finished projects. These are just a few samplings on what I'll have.
I hope to have some Christmas dolls for my Etsy way before Thanskgiving. Thanks for stopping by.
Many blessings to all and have a great week!

These girls are now available in my Etsy shop. Millie and Tillie - fun creating these two little ones.
These will also be my last dolls for about 2 weeks. Taking a break and a small vacation with hubby.
I do want to thank all of my wonderful customers who have bought my dolls. It makes me so happy to hear from you all and the sweet comments. All I hope is to bring smiles to your hearts.
With that said - may you all have a safe and wonderful 4 of July. Take care.

Is that how you would spell the sound of an owl - hooo hooo? I know there are many different versions, but I think I'll use this one. lol
Happy Sunday all! I've named my new doll Janie and she informed me that she loves owls. Likes to collect them - so off to the craft table and one was created for her.
Getting pretty hot here in Texas. I sometimes like to take photos of my dolls outdoors - wow - broke a small sweat today photographing Ms. Janie!
Have a wonderful week and many blessings to all.
warm hugs from Texas!

Finished this doll today and listed her - but as I began posting her I received notification that she has been sold.
Miss Phoebe and Mr. Teddy going to Illinois.
Love the name Phoebe - reminds me of that TV show "Friends". Phoebe was the funny one!
Thank you so much to all of my wonderful customers.
I am truly blessed and give thanks to our Lord each and every day.
Have a wonderful week.
