    1980, my mom taught me when I was around 10 yrs old
  1. Very cute! I love the hat and the tie! I had an uncle that wore a hat just like that. I remember him so vividly, he always wore one. He had a nice one for church and another for every day and he always had his pipe.....
  2. So pretty! I secretly wanted a Cabbage Patch doll when I was a kid, but at the time they were going for a hundred dollars or more. So, I knew we couldn't afford them. I told my mom I didn't want one so that she wouldn't worry and try to get me one. But I think they are so cute and now at least they arent so expensive. Love this outfit especially!
  3. My mom taught me when I was around nine or ten.
  4. I love it! Especially the hat. The hat is fantastic!
  5. THANK YOU SHAYLEN!!!! I appreciate this sooooo much, and of course, I would be very interested in any additional instructions that you feel like showing me!
  6. Thanks Shaylen, with your photo I might be able to figure it out.....as for my round ripples, the autumn red and bone one is for me. The camo, black and brown is for my 15 yr old nephew for christmas. For mine, I am using an H hook and the camo an I hook. I usually use an H for everything and make alot of threadies as well, so the I took some getting used to. I have a camera, just need the time for hubby to help me figure out how to post them here. i have been taking pictures of my stuff and loading it on to the computer though. Be nice if I had some pictures of all the doilies that
  7. I have a question and i hope someone can help. I've read most of the pages of this thread, but haven't found the answer. I have seen the beautiful ghans where you add the squares to make more points. I really want to know how to do this. I have to round ripples that I am working on right now, both have 12 points at present. I think they would look so much nicer with more points since I am making them both very large. If any one could tell me how to do this I would really be appreciative! Send me a pm or tell me here, I am so not picky. THANK YOU! I love all the blankets....and si
  8. I just have to say.....what a wonderful sweet gesture from everyone that made a contribution. I'm sure that it will definitely feel like a great big hug to her. All the ghans are beautiful, and I feel proud to even be a member of such a group. Cheers to Krystal, what a marathon of crocheting! :hug :hug :hug :hug :hug
  9. I want the doll mostly because of the head size and you can't make sure your items are the right size without the model! I LOVED my saddle shoes and skirt. All my friends wanted my mom to make them one. She was gifted at sewing and crochet...could whip up anything without a pattern.
  10. I had a pair of saddle shoes when I was in Jr. High....my mom made me a poodle skirt to match. She loved them, she wore them in her day---the 50s and 60s. This great pattern goes into my Darski Doll Pattern folder. i have all of them and hopefully this payday or next, i will have the doll so I can get busy.
  11. Oh, and hubby laughs at me....I check every day to see if there is a new installment of Dora's wardrobe! He loves the outfits too and can't wait to see what you come up with next. He said he would have paid you for the patterns because he knows tiffany will be so thrilled. I think you could come up with a pattern for the bed ..you are so talented. Maybe you could use plastic canvas for the sturdiness. I got a hook holder from my christmas exchange partner. It's made like a book and she made panels and crocheted them together around squares of plastic canvas...an idea maybe. Hugs!
  12. Thanks Darski, I sure will. She is just so proud of everything you make her. I made her a hat and scarf for christmas, some bed pillows and last year I made her a quillt and curtains and a quilt for her dolls that all matched. She often loves the same things for years too, so you can add on to what she has. She is as proud of things i make as she is of things you buy her.
