Lullaby Lamb and a Bunny Babushka
Happy Sunday everyone! We've been having the most wonderful fall weather here in beautiful British Columbia and with so many sunny days and mild temps, it's almost tempting not to get any work done! But, I've been busy; super de-dooperdy busy! In fact, I've been so busy that this last week or so has slipped by as quick as a wink! I got two large custom orders done, wrote up a new pattern and started making some new ornament dolls. So, for those of you who have asked for the Lullaby Lamb pattern, it's now available in my shop.
One of my custom orders included a request for a little boy Pixie. I named him Charlie after the sweet Toy Pomeranian my Gran and Gramps' had when we were kids. I made a pair of short overalls for him with cross-over straps, and used my favourite pale blue soy/wool blend yarn for his hair. I think he turned out pretty cute!
Earlier this week, a wonderful idea planted itself into my head! I so badly wanted to try it out, but had to remain on track with my orders before I could bring it to fruition. I imagined a Babushka doll with a twist - one with a pair of bunny ears, or even a pair of kitty ears to spice things up a bit! Oooh goodness! To have to wait till I was finished my orders almost drove me mad with anticipation!!
