"If you can't beat them, then join them." Giggles, that includes the weather! I've enjoyed several Spring-like days but the forecast is bringing us in some snow. Since I can't change the weather I may as well enjoy it, right? (At least try anyway.) Don't mean to complain, I just don't like the cold.
This evening I have several things to chat about. First, I got somewhat of a display working till I get more needful things made for the kitchen. I put the plate rack over the crock stand and so far everything is okay, but I can't display all my pewter plates so need a larger one. I'm keeping it there and will change out the prim goodies later, but for now here is what I have (and notice all my wonderful pestles).
My pestles came from Kay and her hubby Jerry. They're a wonderful team and make all kinds of awesome goodies! (Including the smaller trencher on the second shelf -which you can't see too well in this pic.) My pestles are all different shapes, sizes, and designs. Once I get all my kitchen displays settled the way I want/need things, I'll take lots of close up pics so you can see the awesome detail in them. After finishing the shelf, I started working on a pattern by Maureen Mills of Sweet Meadows Farm. Although I got about 9 of her patterns the first one I chose to work on was "Mood Swing." From the first time I saw this pattern I LOVED it and just had to have it. (Thank you Maureen for all your wonderful patterns!) I didn't have all the supplies I needed so had to improvise on a couple of them. Here's my finished dolls and think they turned out pretty good. Next I'll be making a bench for them....
Aren't these completely adorable and so funny! I just love the "smug" expressions on their faces, LOL! Included in the pattern are complete instructions for making even their cute lil' purses! Every time I pass by and see them I can't help but giggle! And no, I'm not associated with Maureen or Sweet Meadows Farm in any way. But you should know by now when I really like something I have to share, and I just love these dolls! I'll take more pics after their bench is made and try to bring out some details.
With all the storms coming our way I hope you all stay safe n warm. Till next time "have fun crafting!"
Hugs to all, Libs
