"Let's be cheerful"! We have no more right to steal the brightness out of the day for our own family than we have to steal the purse of a stranger. Let us be as careful that our homes are furnished with pleasant & happy thoughts as we are that the rugs are the right color and texture & the furniture comfortable and beautiful"!

chloe






Sweet and demure, 100 % merino homespun with mohair locks and a bamboo skeletal, digestive, circulatory... stuffing.  And she's modest.  Poor Chloe.  Erin made her a quick outfit since I wasn't moving fast  enough.  Next she deemed it, "not good for the girl to be alone", so she whipped her up a companion. Did you know that you could felt bamboo?  Erin didn't know that you can't.  It was a test in patience but the result is soft and sweet.

Chloe has a little lamb!  Thanks Erin.


Blessings, Debbie

    Yours is such a creative family!
    (Did I just end every single sentence with an exclamation point? Yep, I did. And I meant every one.)

  15. Very cute. I love making dolls.

    You asked what variety that blueberry was? It still had the tag on it. It is called a Highland Blueberry. My husband loved the markdown area at Lowe's and Home Depot and he found it last year at the end of the season. It looked almost dead when he brought it home. That is why it looks so incredible to us this year. It has done really well and had grown so much. We have another blueberry right next to it and it is half the size.

  16. She's adorable! And her lamb is just precious. I didn't know bamboo could felt either, but it gave it a nice halo.

    Thank you for your sweet comments. I am trying (sort of) to catch up to everyone. Yep, sleepless nights around here but not too bad. He's such a mellow little guy and he'll nurse in bed so I do get some sleep. Plus daddy moved his schedule around to be home more and it has been such a big help. :)

  17. Absolutely adorable! I've been looking forward to seeing how your felted doll turned out. It gives a nice effect. Love the dress. Hides her modesty nicely. The lamb is so sweet.

    (Thanks for your comment about the patchwork along. I hope you can join in.)

  19. All of my daughters want a Chloe doll! I just know it. Oh, Debbie, she's so cute!

  20. SO adorable! A lovely idea that Chloe got a lamb to keep her company. I do have to admit, I like her as a plain Jane too. Very sweet both ways...:)

    Thanks for sharing...happy week to you!

    xoxo...Gloria

  24. Oh my goodness, Chloe has the hair of my dreams (or maybe my nightmares).........when I was about six years old I pestered my mama for golden ringlets, which she acheived with curling irons.........looking back on an old photo now I resemble a miniature poodle..........be careful what you wish for....lesson learned!

    Saying all that, Chloe is one very beautiful dolly, curly locks and all. x
