Happy Valentines Day!

Logan loves flowers; and she has a basket full for Valentines Day :-)

Her perky hat is another Annie's Attic pattern, in bright white, red, and blue.  Her jumpsuit is a combination of a shortened bodice and attached pantaloons, made a bit fuller, gathered below the knee, then ruffled.

A better view of the lace trim and big flower on Logan's hat.  The flower is from '100 Flowers to Knit and Crochet;' worked in size 3 crochet cotton.  The small flowers on her jumpsuit are the same flower, worked in size 8 perle with slightly smaller petals.

Logan is wishing all of you a very sweet Valentines Day :-)

  4. Hi Beth, Awww she looks so sad. What did you do to her Beth! Ha ha ha. I so-o-o-o like her jumper...adorable. It's funny because I've just created one myself with a lovely hat. I'll post it as soon as I finish her shirt.

  9. Hi everyone!

    Hmmm, I think Logan is more pensive than sad :-) I like to try out different ways to make the mouth; I'll have to remember that this one comes across as sad.

  16. Very lovely. I am working on making my first doll from your pocket spirit pattern. I just love all your patterns and hope to make many dolls. I was wondering how do you make the shoes that Logan and Clair are wearing?

    Thanks for all your wonderful patterns, just wish i could crochet faster so i could make more faster hehe.

  17. Hi April!

    I'm delighted you're making a Pocket Spirit! But be careful, they can be addicting :-)

    The shoes are not my pattern, unfortunately. I use the shoe pattern from an Annie's Attic leaflet "Victorian Darlings." It is designed for the plastic 'Cindy' doll, about 6 1/2 inches tall. That is why I haven't published the pattern; it isn't mine to publish.

  18. Hi Beth, I've been really busy lately. Once again your doll is so lovely. Your right they are addicting, very addicting, so much so I'm taking a que' from your doll house and making 2 (as soon as I get a chance to finish the grannie squares) one for each grand-daughter.
    I used a shoe pattern for one of the doll outfits and they fit my Whimsy perfectly.
    Just look at all the people you have encouraged to pick up the hook with your wonderful full of life "Spirit Dolls".
    Thank you so much Beth.
    I know I would surely miss visiting your blog and not finding a new blog pal (aka use to be pen-pal).
    Keep up the beautiful dolls, and encouraging us to "Pick up a hook"

    'til next time,
    Connie

  19. Hi Connie!

    Oh, I'd love to see your Pocket Cottage when you get it done :-) I wondered if anyone would give it a try; I think someone else is making one for their daughter. And it is great to talk with those who really enjoy both crocheting and dollmaking.

    Have a great day...hope it is warming up their in Illinois like it is here...64 right now! Feels like I've been released from jail :-)
