Have Trailer, will Travel

Finally finished the 'sisters' trailer.  For the future, we were to pick up a travel trailer and fix it up so that we know what we are going to do somewhere over the rainbow and a long way down the line.  Something to look forward to instead of looking backward.  It's also bonding - isn't that what girlfriends do, umm, become sisters. . . . nothing else needs to be said. Blessings, Janet

Strawberry and Dottie

Two new young'uns have come into being.  They are part of the Birthmark babies. Strawberry has her little mark on her cheek and her Strawberry pillow.  Dottie has a dot on her check, dots on her shoes, and  socks - no she's not catching! She also has a crocheted hat and bag with colorful dots.  She's ready to go shopping.  Blessings, Janet

Valentine has been adopted

Yep, she has her plane ticket and is on her way to Illinois with her dolly and her 'chosen' pillow.  I know she will have fun, maybe play in the snow? No way was I going to make a personal delivery.  She was made with so much love, I will miss her.  I know that she is going to a good home and that make my heart feel lighter. Blessings, Janet

Still Looking for My New Home

I want to keep this fresh in your memory so that I can have that garden and puppy.  And, yes, of course the three of you that asked, you most certainly can visit. . . but please help me find it.  Thank you. Blessings, Janet

PS: That is Not a garage in the back, it is for your visit.

Spring Dresses

Is everybody ready for Spring?  Every chance I get, I put my hands to work creating Spring. There are so many places crocheting can be accomplished while waiting for something else to happen.  Two more new dolls have been created. . . and still be put together.  Blessings, Janet

The Crowd

Although it has not been as noisy since they have their own pillows.  Yeah, right, like that will really do it. Two more are on the sewing table.
Had to do maintenance on the bookkeeping, yeah right, like that will be accurate. Mac has a system that took me all day to figure out and I don't think I'm quite there, but I am DONE!  I'll hand write in the rest.  Quit laughing!
It took me a year to start 2009.  But only 21 days to start 2010.  How do you like me now?  Have fun. Blessings, Janet

Hi again,
Wanted to show my newest doll - Valentine. She is showing her knickers because she loves the lace and feels so special.  She isn't too happy she had to wait until I got back from the bus trip. Since it is 30 here, I had to wrap her up so she wouldn't freeze, although we all are freezing. The windows aren't made for this kind of 'gale' wind and the cold air (wind chill teens) is coming right through the windows.  I know my next fabric purchase WOOL for the drapes!!!  We didn't expect this nor for this long.  It's been since the end of December we've had temps like this -- without the wind, it would have been OK.  Blessings, Janet

Ft. Myers Quilt Show Bus Trip

North Ft. Myers has the best restaurant for Soft Shell Crabs - Pinchers Crab Shack. WHOA, what a great meal that was.  The Quilt show was also pretty fantastic. One of the quilts looked like a picture - you could almost smell the flowers, I wanted to just walk right into it.  The other quilt I'm showing you belong to my grandmother (well not these, but some things just exactly like them). Very interesting way to display our ancestors. We had a 1-day trip and managed to squeeze in a shop stop too. So much fun and with all the ladies that I've gone with before. Enjoy the pictures. Blessings, Janet

Do you know where this is?

This is my dream. My Yellow Cottage on the ocean with garden, gazebo, lilac bush, sunflowers, grasses and garage/guest cottage. If you know where it is, I would love to see it in person. There are so many things to do, places to go and friends to see. 2010 Bring it on. Blessings, Janet

Happy New Year 2010

There are 2 more gals that have been handmade today.  Sunshine decided she didn't like the dress fabric I picked out, so she decided Sunflowers are better.  Therefore, she became Sunflower.  Lavender is so easy going and satisfied with everything, from her hair-do to her dress.  I crocheted a lace on their panties.  They both have striped socks. I hope you all have a Happy and Healthy New Year 2010. Blessings, Janet
