Shanti sent me a book, “Good Night” and I am making the animals from the book for Prem. The book arrived today. I saw the order from Amazon so could see some of the animals so I have been working on them all week. Yesterday we went to Staples to get my pattern for the dinosaur. I have the pattern but I had to have it copied at 200% and my printer doesn’t do that so we went to Staples and got nine patterns from that book enlarged. I got the green fleece last week so now I am all set and ready to start on him.
This is Silly Jojo, the rabbit. She is all done.
This is Max, the bear. I have him all done except for sewing on the strap. I am now working on Zoe who is a Raggedy Ann type doll. I have her clothes done and now just need to sew on the face, add her hair and finally stuff her. Then I need to make the dinosaur, Oscar who is a clown and the yellow rubber ducky. I can’t make a rubber duck so I may look and see if I can find one otherwise I will crochet a duck for her. Then I need to find a big box and send them all to CA to Prem. I will also send Dyhana’s set in the same box.
Today I started my newest projects. Finger puppets.
This is my first, it is a camel. I think he is prettier than I am but that is life!! Now I spend a hour or so on each of my projects so I don’t get bored working on any one thing. I start the day with an hour stitching on my fleece animals and clothes. Then though the day I spend a hour on knitting baby sweaters, another on crocheting baby granny square blankets – I have a box with baby items for any one who has a friend expecting and right now all my boy’s sets are gone so I need to add a few more. Then I spend time on pinning my fleece animals getting them ready for the next day’s stitching. And crocheting my princess and the pea. I have the prince almost done, I only need to put the face on him and then I will work on the princess again. I do a little on each doll and then need time to just look at them for a while to see how I am going to get them just right. Most of the time they work out fine but some I have to do over to get them the way I want them. I hope to have 5 or 6 finger puppets done by Sunday when we go over to Patty’s house. I want to bring them for story time with Becca’s kids. I want to get Little Red Ridinghood done and a could animals for them to play with while we adults visit. So now it is back to stuffing Zoe’s arms, I am making one for Prem and one for me. Have a good night.
