IF I ever learn to knit, I would love to make a little vest or sweater for one of my dolls. This book has mostly bear patterns but there are also patterns for knitted clothes. It can't be all that difficult, can it?
The dress pattern below is in one of the counted cross stitch books. I didn't even see this until I got the book home. I think it is adorable! The skirt is stitched on 32ct linen. There are lots of little motifs to stitch too. Perfect for pillows or wall hangings in miniature!
I recently purchased an Ott Lite with a magnifier. I got it at Michaels, 50% off and I used my Christmas gift cards. NOW I should be able to see to stitch! No more excuses, right?
I saw this little step stool on Ebay a long time ago. The listing expired for the green one while I was hesitating about buying it. Then all I could find were red ones. I wanted GREEN!
Well, guess what? The green one came up again and I snatched it right away! It's perfect for my kitchen. :D
I'm still thinking about what kind of tile I want to make for the floor and walls. The whole color scheme may change if I find something I like better. I may try to modern up the appliances a bit too? Not sure how I would do that. I may try some stainless steel paint on something and see if I like that? I'll need to build some cabinets and shelves too.
My first project today is taking Birgit's gifts to the post office. Congratulations again Birgit and thanks to everyone else who entered my give-a-way!
Hope you have a beautiful Saturday!
