Joy sent me this vintage valentine.  That little doll looks like my Little Darling, Alice.  It’s just perfect; I love it!  Thank you, Joy!

I wanted to show you my hearts in my little cabinet of pretty things.  I thought a photo of them would be appropriate for today, don’t you?

Gina and Alice  had lots of fun with paper dolls and valentines a couple of weekends ago.  Did you see the slideshow I made of their fun on my website’s home page?

My tiny Fairyland Pukipuki bjd, Sugar wants to send to Valentine wishes too!

Happy Valentine’s Day, with love!

Gracie is Ready

Gracie is all dressed and ready to show you what I’ve just finished making for her.  Do you remember seeing the marled blue/ivory sweater I was working on last week?  Well, it was for this special girl.

I am very happy with how this little sweater turned out.  I tried something new by holding two different strands of lace yarn together.  I’ll admit that I was a bit worried that the embroidery would get lost in the two colors of yarn, but it worked out perfectly.  Since the yarn is busy, I kept the embroidery more monochromatic.

And here is Gracie is all her glory!  She loves her new ensemble!  It makes her feel like spring is right around the corner, and I do too.  (We even had a thunderstorm last night!)

I am still loving this fabric that I received about two years ago.  (It reminds me of my grandmother and her pillowcases.)  I got this particular design in all four colorways:  blue, yellow, violet, and red violet.  If you click on the colors you can go back and visit the other ensembles I made with this print.  The collection is designed by Eleanor Burns and it is called Zoey Christine.

Gracie’s new ensemble will fit both of Kaye’s MSD sized dolls although the dress will be slightly longer on the Mei Mei (Talyssa) body.  “Sky Blue Wishes” will be available tonight (February 7, 2016) at 7:00 pm CST, cindyricedesigns.com.

Thanks for visiting with me today!

Have (or, I hope you are having) a great day!
