This fellow doesn't have a face. Shown with his friend for size comparison. (and another chance to show off the dress) I'd love to figure out how to get the mermaid this small.

A party. They are all wearing original (modest) designs.

A quick little girl sized bracelet. The beads are large glass seed beads. The (purchased) heart is polymer clay with little sparklie centers.

The quilt that will never be. After my recent trip to MO, I am inspired to try something different with quilting. This was intended for a toddler sized bed. I'm thinking to go smaller...

She doesn't have a face yet, when she does I'll change the picture so you can see how sparkly the blue yarn is. A vast improvement over the first mermaid attempt.

This number line is made of sturdy fabric and sharpie. (hearts- because we love math!) It is big enough for a kid-sized hand to cover the number they are starting with and 'jump back' the number of times they are subtracting. When the hand is lifted, the answer is revealed. I love all math in game form.

May not look like much, 50 more. I'll donate about half of them.

Wood beads are great on this necklace. My beading techniques are slowly improving.

Fun colors- watermelon apron! I'm working on a few big projects but these aprons are a great fun and fast distraction.

A little girl's apron with a ruffle along the bottom and pockets in the front. This one was fun to make!

Revamping this thrift store lamp was so easy. I found a sticky lampshade at the craft store and used my latest-most-favorite fabirc. This one is on my sewing table so I get to look at it all the time!

I totally LOVE this yarn. I've knitted it into a 2ft square. I was thinking to make a purse but I just kept knitting. If it will be a purse it will have to be lined with something stiff and I'll have to make a handle somehow. I'm sorry to say that I dislike making handles and it will likely sit for a while.

Barbie has another new dress. These are so quick!

One of two all-serged nightgowns. When the sewing machine was down, I was trying new things.

Barbie has yet another new dress. I love using up small balls of leftovers for these quick knits!

I don't have an actual pattern for little girl's undies, but these seem to work. I have been informed of a few modifications that must be made for any more.
