My new passion...Tilda !

This is my first Tilda doll. I have about three more in the making. Since I am also a quilter/sewer, this was natural for me to gravitate towards. Tilda dolls are easy to make, but you must have patience when turning and stuffing the dolls. The part I am trying to learn more of is how to do Tilda hair. For me, the hair is part of the dolls personality. lol I have yet to find one that I love, but I will keep trying. It's also fun to dress her.  I hope you like my first Tilda. Stay tuned for more!!

Month of July

July has been a busy month for me! I have been creating up a storm lately. I have four birthdays this month to prepare for amongst just my daily life. But, I'm not complaining, I love to be busy.  I am also teaching my grand-daughter, Kayleigh, to sew. She is only eight years old, but she is my little crafter. She has been stamping ever since she was two years old!! Yesterday, she made a pillow for her Barbie dolls. Teaching her is one of the best things I can do for her and it truly brings me great joy.  If you are on my facebook page, you can see a photo of her sewing!

I am also finishing my three month term as a HandiCrafts Supplier DT member. I love that their products are recycled. Here are some photos of my latest projects and you may see some of their beautiful flowers on them too!  Take care everyone and bye for now!

Check out my altered birdhouse!

As many of you know, I love to go thrift store shopping. Recently, I picked up this gem and altered it. I can't find the original photo I took but it was hand painted with leaves and flowers like we did in the 80's. lol   I used Webster's Pages paper on this project and Prima flowers. Hope you like it.
