I actually finished my Blythe's dress (her name is Verity Rose) the other day. We had several days of gloom, so pic-taking was not the best. The first bright day, I took several pix before I totally forgot about taking any at all!!! I took them with a window behind me, so you see that window on poor Verity's forehead!! Sorry. Since then, I've been so busy working on my swap goodies.
|Her dress is light pink|
|The little flower is white with a tiny pink heart button|
|You can't really see her bare tootsies!|
|Her hair decor is a baby barette!|
I added a little slip under it because it does show thrrough and you can see her legs. I didn't make a slip, but used a vintage Madame Alexander half slip that I needed to take a few tucks in so it wouldn't fall down around her ankles! It was certainly interesting using a tiny steel hook and thread after using bulky yarn and a huge hook for the cowls I made for Greta.
Anyhoo, I have been working away on swappy gifties. I finished Elizabeth's ornament; I'm working on the hearts; and then I will work on the Valentine box. I had to buy a large Valentine box of candy in order to have the large box to use. YUP! Those chocolates keep calling me!!! I think I will end up 10 pounds heavier by the time I'm done. At least. Did I say I love chocolate??? And that I cannot resist it???? Oh, when I was looking for the Valentine heart - I saw the BIGGEST heart box of Russell Stover chocolates!!!! My eyes just lit right up, and at approx. 40 bucks , I'll have to leave that to my imaginary boyfriend!!! So, perhaps not this year ... ha ha ha! Uh oh ... speaking of that yummy candy ... I have the urge to run and grab a piece. Yep - need a little of that chocolate-energy!!!
Have a great Sunday, what's left of it. I am taking advantage of daylight, so going to run .........
Until next time ....
