I've had this little doll from IKEA for a while, and this morning she looked sad to be naked and not have a pretty outfit for spring. All of the dolls like this at Noble Knits have scarves and ponchos and sweaters and things to wear, and my doll needed something too. So since today was a knitting day, I sat down and came up with this little crocheted dress for her. And then I felt bad that she didn't have hair, so I made her a floppy hat. Doesn't she look happy, kicking up her heels with joy? She even had to go outside and model in the sunshine!
We were a small knitting group today--only four of us. But we had a great time as always and it was fun to catch up with my friend Monica since I haven't seen her in a while. She even brought banana bread to go with the Chunky Monkey Bread I made. I love having these women over to hang out and knit. We talk about all kinds of things--decorating, knitting, parenting, marriage, family, and just about everything else.
The doorbell rang after they all left; the FedEx truck brought my old window I bought on eBay. It was smaller than I expected; I think after paying such a ridiculous amount for packing and shipping I expected it to be the most fantasic window ever. I decided to hang it above Emma's bed, and since it has four panes I thought I'd embellish it with her name. Kids always love stuff with their name on it! I don't usually go for this kind of thing, but thought it would be a fun change. I printed out big letters and then cut them out of some pretty paper I had laying around. I glued them to the back of the window with a dab of Elmers and it's staying on just fine. (As you can see, Emma loves pink and her room is really PINK!)
