Blossom the flower child

Meet Blossom, She just loves the out doors, From Planting flowers to doing all her garden work. With all these Bright colors she is all about Spring and Summer.

Blossom Is wearing a cute lil sun dress with a heart button on the bottom and 4 cute lil colored buttons on the top.
Her raggy looking hat keeps that hot sun off her head as she pulls the weeds out of her flower beds and her scarf is well she just loves the way it matches her hat.

Blossom The Flower Child

Blossom Is up for grabs in the shop.
I just love the way she turned out i know i say that for every doll but with each doll I get better and better and this one i'm just so proud of that I can't believe I put her up for sale.
I actually broke my sewwing machiine o ut of jail for this Gloomy and to tell you the truth an out fit sewn with a machine is just much cleaner looking than a hand stitched one dont you think?

I bought those cute lil button that are one her dress at Micheals and i think it really adds to the detailing of the Gloomy.

SO one project is finished and im so thrilled about it. Now to finish my 1 sock and the Afghan, and of course get my sisters stuff started. I did remake a dress for one of the lil gloomys and will be adding it either tomorrow or monday in to my shop. Remeber Milly? Well I redid her clothes:)

Well that is all istill havent finished my dishes that is just one never ending job so i really should get off here and maybe do some house work lol

Well I haven't worked on my Afghan at all :( and I have not finished a single project. I ended up getting the flu bug and was laid up for a couple days, so sick all I could do is just sleep and whine lol
I now have Three projects on the go, including the Afghan! I also have so many things I want to do and have to do lol. BUT I better finish all these things before I start another or i will be getting myself over whelmed.
Looking at the calender I don't think i will be able to accomplish my own Challenge of finishing my Afghan by the end of April :( so I will have to give myself a new date and It shall be ........
I will have to look at the calender more. Next month is going to be alil busy. Both my kids are in soccor and mys ister is graduating next month:)

So lets start with the Gloomy Sense she will Probley be finished sooner than the rest.
She is not named yet !
She is the first ever Bright Gloomy lol Her Eyelids are magenta not black, She also is wearing a slouchy raggy looking hat :) I have one leg done so I just need to make another leg and dress her. OOoooo and name her. I bought some really cute fabric to out fit this girl with and am excited for her to be finished the yellow and the pink I used in this doll is a different yarn than i usually use and its 1/2 Wool and 1/2 Acrylic, it has a fuzzier texture to it and the stuff i used for her hat and scarf is really unusual I bought it at a yarn store and need to search for the wrapper so I can tell ya all exactly what it is called I will say though it is terrible hard to work with i had to us a K hook.

I will add more details on this gal once I have her finished!!

So lately I have been trying to get my crochet skills up there Learning newer techniques stitches etc, SOoo I found some sock yarn in Zellers and decided I shall try to build a Sock .. YEs you read that right A sock. I would say a pair but once I finish this one sock I will maybe make another by next year lmao
So theres my Sock I'm using Pink Camo its turning out pretty cool but boy oh boy is it taking awhile.
The sock Pattern is called ribbon`s and Bows I'm thinking I picked a two complicated pattern for my first try at socks but I really wanted to learn how to do the cable cross stitch
NOw woooo hoo I acomplished something today I updated my blog ppls on my self.
So hopefully next time I will have some finished items to show you all. Im still feeling under the weather so I have been taking it easy .
My sister bought me Yarn to make her
* 3 more dishcloth's
*and a slouchy hat
So I would like to get those done for her soon aswell Due to she bought the yarn/cotton for me to make them for her`:)
So I shall be done with rambling do my dishes up quick and get my Hooker moving lol

I made 4 slouchy hats:) these two the one pictured above and below are from the pattern called pretty puff slouchy hat that can be found here. Above model is me :P lol and below is my daughter kiera!!

puffy slouchy hat purple

I made two others but gave one away before I took photos of it and the other I made for myself and forgot at a friends house durring the weekend lol


I'm trying to finish an afghan lol
I started this one on Saturday and do plan on finishing it this is my forth try at making an afghan so my hope is to actually finish it. The Pattern im following for this one is called the Blooming Blankie it is or was in the crochet today magazine:) Im challenging myself to have it done by the end of april! I just love the colors and am actually really excited about this one so I don't think it will go in to the closet with the other three that are sitting there unfinished.

so that all seems like alot of crochet but people I make amigurumi`s not blankets lol so to give myself a break from the blanket and well I was searching lovely patterns online i came across this etsy store called berriiiz!
and just feel in love with her dolls but what one thing i just loved was the hair :) and I just needed to know how she did it so I bought the pattern. she had a deal going on so I ended up buying three patterns lol. I bought the patterns for Sugar, Candy and Gloria:)
Well i got the patterns really fast and of course then printed all three out, had them sitting here and just had to start one.

oook i never followed the pattern all the way through I changed alot of stuff. ( i really need to sit down and actually follow a pattern through seriously.

When I was making this doll Kiera ( my daughter) just loved here even when all i had was a head with hair and eyes on it! I was planning on making it for my lil sister who's birthday is in June and told kiera this but when i finished this lil doll Kiera named her lucy-ella and the look in here eys just told me how much my own lil girl wanted to keep this lil lucy-ella.


lucykieraq She got her lucy-ella!!!! she has practically been hugging her ever sence and they even had a tea party before bed :)

So there is my update and all my works.

Need to run and start working on the is afghan lol

This was the first time ever I have worked with fondant and according to me I think IT turned out mighty fine :)I had to use aluminum foil to flip the fondant on to the cake and it made it look really crinkly so I plan on trying this again but It did taste really good!!!
So with that lil update on me I have to announce that I have added another finished item to the shop....
