“A Flower for Penny”

Penny looks so serious about taking care of her flower blossom, doesn’t she. ¬†She is such a gentle and caring soul; I know her blossom will last forever. ūüôā

In case you’re wondering Penny is a small bjd (22 cm or 8-5/8″), and sculpted by Linda Macario. ¬†A plus is that she shares wigs with my Little Darlings, and eyes with the MSD sized dolls. ¬†If you’d like to see the ensembles I’ve made for her, you can find everything in this Flickr album. ¬†Penny also has a sister named Polly.

Penny’s summer ensemble features a blossom-filled dress made out of a cotton floral print from Japan. ¬†The tiny blossoms are in warm, yet bright, shades of red, violet, and pink. ¬†The skirt is prettied up with cotton Cluny lace from England and a silk bow.

Her summer hat is made with a coordinating tan/off white dot cotton.  A pair of embroidered blossoms embellishes the brim.

Penny’s little cardigan sweater is hand knit with lace weight merino wool. ¬†Blossoms in coordinating colors are embroidered on the front.

Penny is Popping in to Wish You…

Penny is popping in to wish you “Springtime Joy” . . . even though springtime feels miles away at the moment. ¬†We are getting our first snowstorm of 2017¬†tonight! ¬†It’s been a mighty strange winter around here.

So, for me at least, I need to pretend that spring is here, and Penny is helping with that.  Here is Penny in her new ensemble with her baby bunny, Spring.

You can see what a caring and gentle pet mama Penny is to little Spring.  They bonded immediately!  Spring is another needle felted bunny made by me.  She is made with wool roving, has red violet Delicate bead eyes (sewn on) and a pink embroidered nose.

Penny’s new spring ensemble features a floral cotton dress in cool shades of rose, blue violet, and grey and a background the color of whipping cream.

Her hand knit sweater is knit out of rosy colored mohair/silk lace yarn.  Two different rose bouquet motifs are embroidered on the front.  I picked the blue violet out of the print to highlight with a hair ribbon, waist sash, embroidery, and bracelet.

Hello from blustery northern Illinois. ¬†The weather change is happening. ¬†It’s been springlike the last couple of days and we may get snow flurries tomorrow. ¬†Our weather is rarely boring!

I thought I’d put Penny’s latest cardigan from “Christmas Love” into pattern form for all of your chilly Penny and Polly girls.

My number one goal for the evening is to keep our chihuahua from blowing away when he goes out to do his business.  LOL!  Hope you have a great evening!  Bye for now!
