I woke up Saturday morning really early.
I had an image of a primitive doll in my head.
I couldn't get her out of my mind, so I knew
I would be making this doll.
I was inspired by a doll I had seen at Cottage Herbs,
as well as a pattern I had seen in Kindred Spirits.
She was created without mishap or distraction.
I originally thought she would be smaller, and
she was intended to be hung as a greeter or wall hanger.
I just had an urge to work with wool.
It felt so good
to do the stitching.
As I began cutting her out,
I remembered this spindle.
The rest is history.
Her name is Pheobe.
She is available on WSOAPP.
Cross Stitch is another passion I have been doing lately.
I haven't done it in a while, because it's the kind
of project that feels like it drags on forever.
I'm very impatient, but this pillow
worked up fast enough.
I am very fond of Lori Markovic's designs.
I was very sad to learn she has
retired from designing patterns.
I used over-dyed Valdani floss for this project.
The colors are all varigated, and in soft hues.
Well thanks for peeking.
Time to get dinner in the oven....
