Sunday update..baby dress

     Annabelle is Ya's doll.  Ya turns 13 this week (the day she starts school).  All her dolls have been given baths, and all the doll clothes washed.  They are going into storage.  I still must dress them and wrap them in all their blankets I made for them. Annabelle's last Hurrah was a modeling job. If Ya gets the notion to play with them they will come out, but its been ages since she has taken notice.

    Annabelle is wearing the little Angel wing dress http://www.bevscountrycottage.com/angel-wings-pinafore.html  I used the yarn I have no idea where it came from.  I think it may be some I used on a little skirt for my DD.  I believe it is Sidar.  Who knows.  It was prettier balled up. The bonnet and the diaper are the same as the blue set.  I may have changed the frills a tad on the bonnet.  I am in love with the changes on the bonnet.  I took notice of an old vintage knitted bonnet with leaves for the brim. Its my feeble attempt at making a crocheted one.

    The blanket used for the picture is made from fleece and fun fur.  If you go to trade shows all over or any big yarn or thread event you may have seen my blanket.  Kathrine Rose the  Polar Bear sat on it.  I had made several  items for a display cube..  My friend that I worked for overhauled her table and sent me most of my stuff.  Its been on the road a very long time. I honestly had forgot I made them.

     Wonder how my Shamrock my grandma Houston gave me 41 years ago is doing.  It is doing very well indeed.  My gr gr grandma  Keith had ivy above her library table ( my DD now has the table) so I just potted me some in her old vase.  It was all over her wall and something a small child would remember.

    Mom is having well... her moments. It breaks ones heart.  WP. and I has living the dream, but will be glad when our got 2s are done.   I am still finding books for my little girl Marla.  WP. and I must go to town. Whats so funny is the trip is mostly for more Duck tape.  Buy stock now in storage containers and Duck tape :)

Well as my beloved Chickie grandma would say, I'll be lovin you so good while I'm gone. Be kind this week.
