The joy of dollmaking

August has flown by, and I have immersed myself in dollmaking.  Jessica Doering's Eva pattern, freely available on Ravelry, once again proves to be a dollmakers dream canvas.

Grace and Faith


Faith: the evidence of things not seen.
Hope: the anticipation of future good.
Grace: love freely given

Crochet Magic

Yesterday, I wasn't feeling very well.  Summer stomach flu, or something like that.  So I dug around for some simple yarn (Knit Picks Brava Worsted), and pulled out one of my favorite patterns:  Jessica Doering's Eva Pattern , freely available on Ravelry.  By the end of the day, I had a new friend!

Meet Lillian.  Fortunately, I had a dress left over from making these dolls last fall that fit her perfectly, and the color was perfect as well!

There is something magical about turning a string and a hook into a new friend.  Turning strings into things is my superpower...what is yours?
