  1. Good Morning. Sitting here under dark, dark clouds with thunder in the distance. Waiting to see if we get more rain or just noise. Lyn are you saying the SPCA will accept birds nest? That is so cool. I have one in my tree that does not seem to be being used and it has some shinny stuff in it to give it a little bling. The tree is not being trimmed, because of the nest. Well, I have to shut down. Hope to be back later.
  2. They are adorable. Thank you.
  3. Hi and Welcome to Crochetville from the Gulf Coast of Florida. Grab your yarn and hooks, put your feet up and sit a spell
  4. Trying to catch up with all that is going on. We have had storms running thru here the last couple of days. We might not get the rain, but we do get the thunder and we have seen some lightning. The rain when it has come, has filled up the birdbaths. Cardinals, Catbirds and Mocking Birds use the bird bath and sometimes some sparrows will show up. We are asked not to keep any standing water, as they are worried about mosquitoes. I am finished the new tote and now I will make a couple of squares for owlvamp and then the extras for the tote. We had sun for about 5 minutes, now the clouds and thunder are back. Have to shut down.
  5. Just beautiful.

  11. Good Morning. Got another package out in the mail. This one is a doll with several outfits for Bailey4's charity. 3 more packages to go and I can start on next years stuff. Hot and humid, but I have to go to the store this morning. Working on the pocket for the new tote today. I know I am early, but I have a little time, so I thought I would get it ready. Have a great day everyone.
  12. Thank you all. It was fun to make the outfit and now I know how to dress others.
  13. Here is the porcelain doll I have been working on. I call her Dolly, as I dressed her up like a Country Singer. The doll is pretty, but very delicate.
  14. If you look here you can see the new doll I dressed. She is porcelain and the second picture shows you her face. I called Dolly.
  15. A little while ago I saw some Porcelain Dolls on sale at Factory Direct. They are very pretty dolls, a little delicate. She is 12 1/2 inches tall. I looked and found I had patterns for 11 1/2 and 13. So I decided to take a pattern for a 13 inch doll and us size 3 yarn and an F hook. Since I was just playing to find size, I decided to make her into a County Singer. Yesterday I got her mini acoustic guitar. So here is Dolly.
