After the storm

I look to the hills,

But where will my help come from?

Not from the mountains

High and remote.

Not from the oceans

Cold and deep.

Not from the desert

Parched and barren.

Not from the storm

Bent on destruction.

I look to the sky

But where will my strength come from?

From God, who is above me.

From God, who is below me.

From God, who is within me.

Let the mountains of indifference despise me,

Let the oceans of hypocrisy wash over me,

Let the desert of hate burn me,

Let the storm of war destroy me.

God is my help and my strength forever.

Psalm 121, with a dash of Psalm 146 and my own musings.

Nelly Lopez's BHD pattern, and some clothing for her


I found this adorable doll pattern on a Facebook Group callede Nutshell Lane Studio.  The doll pattern is free, on Nelly Lopez blog.  But I wantede to make her a wardrobe, and it is also free and I will post it here:

Nelly Lopez BHD pattern  links to the doll pattern.  You can use the hat pattern as a wig cap and make all sorts of hair styles.  This doll is Nelly Lopez design.

Outfits for Nelly Lopez BHD doll links to the above clothing.  The clothing are my own designs.

I made my Nelly Lopez dolls with Red Heart Super Saver and a size E crochet hook.  The clothing is made with Paintbox DK weight yarn and a D hook.  The clothing fits up over the feet of the doll and requires no closure, as I used the Foundation Single Crochet to begin each neckline.  This is a very stretchy stitch, and if you are not family with it, you can find many videos by doing a Google search.

My two girls, Onyx and Pearl

Overalls and bibbed jumper

Pinafore dresses

Basic dress, rompers, and sweater

Additional options to basic dress.

Nelly has a lot of other free doll designs on her blog, and outfits for the dolls.  Check it out, and enjoy the crochet!
