Crafting On

I've been looking at the forecast for the next few days.  Lots of rain, so I am hopeful that I can really get some things done inside.  Mowing the yard is certainly out for a bit.

Here's a doll that I am working on from Toymaking with Children.  I really thought I would have her done by now, but I'm not too pleased with the way the body is stuffing.  The head is good, but I'm going to take the wool out of the body and try again.  The directions did say to stuff lightly.  I think I'll try that.  Getting the head in the wee opening was quite the task!

Knitted Doll

I've made a couple tablecloths, hoping that I might use a different one each day.  We'll see.  They're just two-yard-ish increments that are hemmed on the ends.  The yellow is some old linen that I got for free.


And lastly, here's the Whitsun dove mobile from The Children's Year and All Year Round.  I don't mind that the books have overlap, as there is usually a subtle variation between the two projects (like the flower fairies).  I used eight doves instead of twelve, since I had already used my hoop that was the size recommended.  Roan helped me with this project, as he loves to help in any way he can.

I love your dove mobile! They are so light and fluttery - it's perfect. Trying to balance mobiles like that is such a challenge for me. I must love mobiles, though, because I continue to make them. : ) The doll is looking very cute, too. Sometimes I wish I had tablecloths - I'm sure you will enjoy those. - Stacey

Thanks! My house has numerous mobiles, small as it is. I think they add something special and deliberate.

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
