Happy New Year “2017”

WOW!  Where did the year go?  I enjoyed sewing so much again this past year.  I met some wonderful, incredibly talented Doll designers.  I even had the privilege of testing a few of their patterns.  I opened My Etsy Shop.  So many wonderful customers and orders came in.  I loved meeting everyone of you.  My Facebook page just hit 200.  I decided it was time to plunge into Blogging.  I haven’t done this for a few years. I have this wonderful friend/mentor that is keeping me moving forward.  BOY does she mean it! I don’t want to disappoint her or me in this New Year.

I thought I would show off a few of my outfits from last year.   I also sculpt little Fictional, Whimsical, One of a Kind Wool characters from time to time.  You will see my little Friends the Minnesota RockHeads tag along.   I love telling stories, I think it shows in all my pictures.

My Love of Wool will start to show up more with my sewing.  I have some wonderful ideas I hope to show off this New Year!  (With the help of my little Wool friends). My love for the Country Life shows in my work.  Most of my friends will tell you, I have to add LACE and ribbon or least try to add it to each of my outfits.  Gotta add that bling.

Here we go with a few of my favorites from 2016.  As always I love to hear your comments or suggestions.

 I have to show you all 1 more picture. My poor dog Chester.  I do believe he is just Holiday pooped out! The girls sat there and petted him.  If you listened closely you could hear them humming to him. Good bye to 2016 and Hello to 2017!  I bet Chester is dreaming about new bones and chasing Squirrels up the tree.  May you all Have a Wonderful New Year.
