bright felt love.

Surprise! I'm in a doll-making mode these days. And if dolls are to be made, then this stuff is extremely important...

Wool felt.

It's delicious! High-quality, durable and sturdy wool felt!

It's used for hair, clothing, shoes...

The possibilities are endless!

I'm putting the finishing touches on several dolls, having just finished one of their cute little reversible dresses. I'm looking forward to sharing the dollies in their pretty dresses...

But first, we await a bright and sunny Florida day. Regionally-speaking, the skies have been rather "Buffalo-ish" here in recent days.

And we can't take photos of sunny dolls on dreary Buffalo days!

If you're inclined to order some lovely felt, here's a link to where I ordered my felt...Retro Mama! She's currently having a sale on her felt and patterns, just enter LEAP15 at the checkout and you'll receive 15% off your order (it figures I just missed out on this promo!).

Go, be amazed at the colors. I highly recommend this shop!

Blogging from my phone!

Being able to blog via my iPhone is revolutionary! It has the potential of throwing my dear readers into a plethora of crazy, meaningless posts from yours truly.

As I type, you are a participant in this new adventure...how exciting for you! You're welcome! Any and all errors on my part don't count and must be forgiven, 'cause I have no idea of what I'm doing!

Fun! Don't you agree?

And this is what the hubby and I did Saturday...

While snow covered the yard up in Pennsylvania where my brother and his family lives...

Leaves cover the earth where we live. And that means raking.

And mulching.

And fertilizing.

Thank goodness it's raining today, because I need a little break from the yard work!

hooker school.

I've really, really been wanting to learn how to crochet. Like I don't have enough "stuff" (aka "projects") already in the works. Let's see...I'm currently making dolls. Prior to that, purses and prior to that, boxer shorts. Purses, wristlets, purses. A few wallets, banners, aprons, hats...

I am confident that my squeeze, Jason, is going to be thrilled with this newest endeavor. I have a sweater that fetches all kinds of compliments, but sadly, I always have to deny having anything personally to do with its marvelous construction. Just once, I'd like to say, "Why yes, I did make this, thank you!"

I really don't think it's a coincidence that I stumbled across a site dedicated to free crochet lessons. Complete with "how-to" videos. This is destiny, baby!

The link to crochet love is right here. If you're interested in attending, it's free and I'd love to have you as a classmate.

Grab your hook, some yarn and I'll see you in class!

pairs of spotty gams!

So I couldn't resist these sweet polka dots and Mary Jane's...these are the cutest doll legs!

~Heads/faces: check, check
~Arms: check, check, check, check
~Bodies: check, check
~Legs: check, check, check and check!

Now to assemble and stuff them. I cannot wait to share these girls with you! So cute...

I scrapped the primitive doll...she just didn't look right to me. Oh, I'll be making her again. I just don't think I'll do the coffee-wash. Or maybe I will. We'll have to wait and see.

For the time being, this little doll is sweet and she's definitely on my obsession list. I may even make her a little coat...we'll see.

Check back in a few days...I'm really hoping I can stay focused and get them completed.

Super Bowl tonight! Go NY!!!
