I have been creating this doll for a while and I finished her last night. Since I am in a hurry for spring to arrive here in Northern Illinois I named her April! Here are some production pics.
She will be for sale when I open my Etsy shop (that will be, hopefully soon!) The name will be Cabin Crochet Creation. No ‘s’ on creation. If you absolutely love her and can’t wait message me, comment or shoot me an email. Thanks! Blessings to you all!
Thank you “5 Little Monsters” for the patterns of the Nativity! I haven’t finished sewing together the sheep or the donkey! Oh well. Thank you Stephi, from stephiskostlichkeiten.blogspot.de for the wonderful penguin pattern!! It made a sweet gift for someone who loves penguins!
(Feast of the Dedication referred to in the extra-biblical book Maccabees. Jesus celebrated this and NOT His birthday, which is also pagan)
(Even though Jesus was bon at Tabernacles not in the winter as the pagan gods were said to have been born).
I apologize for not updating everyone for so long! Since I moved back to Woodstock I got a job working in an awesome store on the Woodstock Square very close to my new home. I am an independent contractor working as the store’s creative consultant. In short I vignette the shelves and am given a shelving unit for my crochet creations. An since it is almost Christmas and Hanukkah, I have been busier than a one-armed-paper-hanger!

Victorian Santa and Children
Next, are a couple of the shelves I vignetted.
A Christmas stocking that I made for my daughter. (I misplaced the web-site I got the pattern from. SORRY! If you are the designer please e-mail me!!)
AND my “Timothy Turkey” (pattern by Rachel at Crochet Spot). The traditional turkey I made in 2015 for Thanksgiving. The camo-turkey I made this year for my daughter! (because she loves “hunter’s camo”)
Well, that’s all for now! If you would like to order anything on this blog that I have made, fill out a contact form and i will be in touch! Since the holidays are fast approaching, I won’t be able to complete a custom order and ship in time for the end of year holidays.
I wanted to let you all know that we didn’t move on October 1st but we are moving November 1st. That is where I have been and what I have been doing! I also have been crocheting! It is how I handle stress!
This is a “mermaid tail” afghan that I made for my daughter. I call it a “fish” blanket! Ha! The pattern is FREE from http://www.YARNutopia.com the website of a wonderful designer Nadia Fuad. You can also find the pattern on Ravelry. I used Red Heart yarn in Wildflower. I also made her fingerless gloves in her favorite, camo! I wonder if I should make her another “fish” blanket in camo!
I also made an awesome poncho with a matching hat. I also made fingerless gloves to match but no pictures of those yet!
The FREE pattern is found here: http://rovingcrafters.com/2015/08/12/girls-and-grannies-a-free-crochet-poncho-pattern/

And, here is our moving disaster!!
With my kitty cat sleeping in the middle of it! Please pray we are all safe moving almost 500 miles!
