Braids.

I made another dolly yesterday. This is the Patchwork Penny doll, also from the Wee Wonderfuls book. I can't recommend the book enough- the projects are adorable, and there are some for girls and boys. I love all of the projects and can see myself making all of them except for maybe one or two. I hope to make one or two of them for myself soon. :) This doll, like my last one, is also a gift for a little girl.


Oh my goodness, I love those sweet little braids. Yarn is the best doll hair ever. It took a lot of fiddling, but it was totally worth it. The front looks better than the back- even though I tacked it in a lot of spots in the back, sometimes you can see some of her head showing through.




I really didn't make any changes to her from the book, that I can think of. I just didn't use the option of making a little quilt that matches her dress- I was using scraps of fabric and didn't have enough.


I've got several other posts that I need to write up, but this will have to do for now. I was planning on doing reviews of Elvis movies this week for Elvis Week (today is the 34th anniversary of his death)- I watched Jailhouse Rock last night. But things didn't work out.

I've been practicing my knitting a lot. What started out as me practicing my garter stitch has grown into a scarf. Besides some little issues at the beginning, it's been going well and I think I'm getting the hang of it! I'll post some pictures when I finish it and move on to practicing other things.

I also finally got to see the new Jane Eyre, as it was released on DVD today! It was amazing and I loved it- I'll review it after I watch it again. If you can call what I write "reviews." It's generally just me rambling about great casting, pretty scenery, and gorgeous scores. :)


Until next time,
