Found........but not lost!

I know this is a bit silly but its been driving me crazy! I had this picture of the completed  Father Christmas hooking that I really wanted to show you. As you can figure I'm a bit computer illiterate. For some reason I just could not find it in "my pictures". ANYHOW.......enough about it. I sure would like your comments here.....what do you think of how I finished it? I've since rolled the foundation back and sewed it down. I've made a wall hanging out of it. It was intended as a pillow but didn't have wool large enough to make the back. Thanks for sticking with me......hope to hear from you... know who you are! That's all I've got for tonight...hope to be back soon. Till then...A Bientot!

Happy New Year!

As you can see we've added a new member to our family. Such a cutie and the biggest cheeks we've ever seen. Here is one of her "big" sisters. I can tell she's going to be a big help to Daddy! Mom is doing well also. Fortunately Miss Viv is quite the snuggler. I haven't been around much because my sewing machine was taking up all my time. The girls all got 18" dolls for Christmas so I had to get busy sewing up clothes for them. Winter Capes were my patterns of choice as well as hats to go with them. I was at the Dollar Store at one point and found these cute little bags that were intended for "gift cards" and thought they would be perfect as a purse for the dolls. Once I got going I also decided to add a little "bling" to their outfits. I think they were a hit. Since I had made the red corduroy skirts for the older girls I thought the dolls should also have them and decided to add the blouses. The party dress goes with the red cape…
