Annie Belle does some sewing...

I awoke this morning to find little yo-yo's all over the dresser... Annie did some late night sewing.. Today I helped her put them together.. Here she is with her little quilt..

Yo-yo's

I love yo-yo's.. I keep a box next to my bed with my squares and my yo-yo template, thread and scissors all ready for me to work on some yo-yo's.. Here are some pics of some great yo-yo created items..




This one is by Sunshine of Sunshines Creations (see sidebar)

Aren't they beautiful!!?? I love the purse. I even woke up this morning to find that Annie Belle had worked on a few small yo-yo's using the old fabric she brought from the orphanage- she did it while I was sleeping that sneaky girl.. I will help her put together her little lap quilt today and get a picture up later..

Meet Esther Ruth and Annie Belle.. They just arrived at the train station today.. They are getting to know eachother and the rest of the children here... It was too windy outside to take them around the property.. Another day. Looks like Esther Ruth is getting ready to read Annie Belle a Bible story so I better go, don't want to miss a good Bible story..

Millie-Mae all dressed up..


Here she is all dressed up. The dress I think wasn't made for her. The back doesn't close completely. But she looks nice nonetheless..

Millie-Mae and Bobby-Jo

These 2 old dolls were given to me by my husbands Aunt.. I love Aunt Karen.. I am washing
the dress that goes with the first doll. She is Millie-Mae.. Then there is Bobby-Jo.. I am so glad
to have finally found them. They had been packed away for our move and I couldn't find
them anywhere! They are being loved on much to the shock and horror of the
teenagers of this house..But I sure love making them freak out just a bit.. ;-)

Introducing Talulah Belle....



This is Talulah Belle... She will be winging her way to my beautiful niece Kelsey for her birthday. She is the first in my new line of Whimsy Dolls. I just love her.. and would keep her all to myself... but I know Talulah would be much happier with Kelsey.. She will come with a blankie and a bag to carry her in. I had great fun creating her as she hung around my head for well over a month now. It is nice to finally see her come to doll life..
