Getting Ready For A Colorful Spring

I'm a bit mad at myself, because I made my most favorite bag ever..... took it to the customer..... and forgot to photograph it first.  Dang!  But, on the upside, the lovely lady I made it for owns a wonderful shop (I've written about it here before) called the Vintage Suitcase.  We did some trading, and one of my new treasures is this sweet Santos doll.

I have her a bit dressed up for upcoming Valentine's Day.  She's wearing a strand of whale heart beads I bought many years ago in Alaska, and a pretty heart necklace my friend Jesse made for my mom last year at Valentine's Day.  Here's a closer view of her perfectly peaceful face.

I've been knitting quite a lot lately.  Made this darling little cap for our precious Ruby.

Of course it's tiny baby size.... just adorable and an easy project.

Also been working on a knitted afghan using these gorgeous jewel tone chenille yarns.

 It's a ripple pattern.... Nice soft and luxurious! 

New exciting things in the works.... will begin hooking lots of small bags, goodies, and weaving shawls for an upcoming spring sale in K.C., big trip in the spring (more on that later),  and more!  Stay tuned..... and add some new color to your life.  My new color is bright royal blue!

Dulcy, As usual you've been a very busy girl! Everything you're working on is beautiful! And I've wanted one of the Santos dolls for ages! Finally got some stuff to Make one for myself. I'll let you know how she turns out and maybe you can make yours a little sister!?!
