Isn’t she the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen?? I was at The Twickenham Doll Show in Huntsville Al yesterday and it was amazing! Most of the dolls were “antique”, “vintage”, or collectable, but a lot of it was just dirty, creepy old dolls that people were trying to sell for crazy prices. Old bisque dolls and dolls from around the 70’s are not my cup of tea. But it was still interesting to see them all and to see my mother’s face light up seeing toys from her childhood.

That being said, it was all worth it because I got some invaluable advice and teachings from an old crocheter named Doti that works with sewing thread and a size 16 crochet hook! I had always wanted to make the jump to going smaller, but found that the information I needed just wasn’t anywhere I could find. She told me everything I needed to know and I am very greatful and excited to get started on the tinies!! This is some of her work:

Just amazing the scale and detail of it.

Even though most of the prices were way too high, I managed to get 2 wigs for my Pullip / Tangkou  and 2 pairs of shoes for my Hujoo baby for just $10! I was hoping one of the wigs would fit one of my BFC ink girls, but her head is too big.

I’ve been slacking off on updating my etsy store with new items. School and life in general has got me a little bogged down right now. I’ve been working on an autumn leaf fairy outfit for a belly button Barbie sized doll, but I haven’t managed to finish it yet. And I am almost done with a candycorn jumper for a BFC ink sized doll. My next project I think will be to re-root by one BFC ink girl that has unfixable hair. We’ll see how that goes. I can’t figure out how to add a slide show anymore, stupid wordpress always changing on me. but here are some photos from the show.

I doubt anyone has noticed how long it’s been since I last posted, but just in case you were wondering when I was going to post more awesomeness and perhaps where I’ve been, I’ve had a terrible migraine with nausea that keeps me from using anything with a screen and crocheting ect. so I haven’t been able to post. Thankfully it seems to havew passed now and I’ve been busy making random things to get out all my creative juices that have been locked inside me these past weeks! Sorry for the crappy pics taken on my bed, but I’m freezing to death!

This is my progress on the Adventure Time blanket. The on on the very top will be Gunter. Then from left to right on the top row: Lumpy Space Princess, Fiona, Finn, Stormo, and  Lemon Grab. On the bottom row: Cinnamon Bun, Jake, Peppermint Butler, Wild Berry Princess, and Cake. I hope to have 8 rows of 6 across at some point before I die! XD


Here is a Pullip sized dress I made. It’s simple but I like it. She looks a little less depressing in it….a little.

This one is similar but more easy going. I think it looks perfect for a stroll by the ocean.

These two I made with a new skein I got today. It’s Paton’s lace in porcelain. I think they look like winter fairies, so pretty.

They can also be worn as skirts! Woot!

This is an elf-ish jumper for a Best Friend Club inc. doll. I don’t have any other clothes for her yet so unfortunately she’s mostly naked.

This is what it looks like from the back. The buttons are functional for easy dressing. I have the pattern and was going to post it soon to see if anyone would test it for me, even though it is pretty simple. I would like to improve my skills at writing patterns that OTHERS can read too! Haha!

I didn’t expect this to look so pretty! She looks like a female Jack Frost. Jacqueline Frost! Well that’s it for now. I hope everyone is keeping safe and warm, especially those hit by Sandy. It’s so important to be prepared for emergencies! It’s as easy as washing out a few empty soda bottles and filling them with water and putting them under the sink. You can use them drink or wash with, or just to flush the toilet. And you should always try to keep at least three days worth of food in the house. As well as a fully stocked first aid kit, extra prescription medications, and essentials like flashlights, radios, and batteries. I think it’s unbelievable that people will try to drive to the next state to get what they can from a gas station or Mcdonalds instead of just having what you need at home. You won’t always be able to do that. The road might not be clear, or you may not be able to get gas, not to mention that it will be dangerous during and right after and emergency situation. So please everyone, take care of your own families. And if you’ve been told to evacuate, DO IT!

 

Thanks for reading! I’d love to hear your comments!
