A Rose by any other name...

For years I have had white Iceberg roses on each side of the trellis at the entrance of our walkway.

Today when I walked outside, I was surprised to see blooms, not only blooms but one of my white Iceberg roses are no longer white, but a beautiful shade of red.  This bush is full of buds and the ones that are beginning to open, all appear to be red...Mother Nature is full of surprises!

Old Dolls - New Epattern Released

I finally have a new epattern out for this year.  My vision to simplify in 2013 has not worked out as I had planned and it seems I have taken on another bigger project than the one I let go of last year.  Things will get better as I learn to organize my time to try to accomplish most of the things on my *to do* list.

About My New EPattern:  This is my simple style version of Old Dolls...distressed from being handed down through the years and lovingly cherished, stained character marks from everyday life; maybe from a leaky roof, or being stored away in trunks for traveling cross country. Clothes have been misplaced over the years and their hair is sparse from being combed again and again.  I wonder where these dolls have been and what stories they would tell if they could talk...

Pattern for 14-1/2" tall skinny doll, her dress and unders.  Easy step by step sewing and painting instructions.

Thank you so much for your interest in my designs.  Enjoy the season what ever it is in your part of the country.  I'm itching to dig in the dirt in my flowerbeds!  Creating is good for the soul whether it's making something good to eat in the kitchen, working on a craft or making flowerbeds weed free.

Until next time...
