Holly Doll

Holly Doll, originally uploaded by Needlings.

It's Saturday night and I've finished another new doll!
My weekend is never much of a break in the week since I work at 7am both Saturday and Sunday so my work week soldiers on as usual.

It was quite a rainy day today but I managed to get a few photos taken between sun showers which made me quite happy.

I wish it were snowy so she could have a wintery background to suit her rosy red cheeks but these will do for now.

Ellie Doll

Ellie Doll, originally uploaded by Needlings.

Well, here she is all finished up! And she's up in the shop too.
My plan is to get a few done to add a few punches of pattern to my table at MacFair!
First one down, polka dots!
I've been working on another one that's a little more Christmas-y looking. Red and white to be exact. With some vintage floral print legs. It's fun to work with patterned fabric every once in awhile on things other than bags.
Happy last weekend of October! I always miss October when it's over. But November is my birth month so the longing doesn't last too long!

New pouches!

New pouches!, originally uploaded by Needlings.

I finally finished a big batch of pouches I've been working on and they're now up in my shop!
My fingers are quite glad that the ordeal is over but I didn't give them much of a break to be honest:
I've spent the past little bit finishing up that new doll that I'll be showing off very soon.

Can you believe how hard I'm working?
I can't!

Talk soon and thanks for checking back with me; as always.

Work, originally uploaded by Needlings.

Just started working on this new doll last night while watching Pushing Daisies (I love that show).

I hope to get a few dolls (my felt plush with fabric legs) finished before MacFair...among a few other things!

Back to work! Hope everyone is having a lovely Wednesday!

P.S. There will be a new batch of snap pouches in the shop very very soon!

Come see me at MacFair!

Still working away at a big batch of pouches.

My poor fingers.

I've also listed a bunch of new Owl Mamas in the shop!

Happy Thursday!

P.S. See that adorable little pincushion?

It's from the ever so sweet SugarElf shop!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Or Columbus Day,
for you Americans.

Or Monday,
for everyone else.

Still working on a big batch of pouches for MacFair.
So so happy to have the next three days to devote
to Needlings and just myself!

Hope everyone has a lovely day!

Finally Finished Scarf

Finally Finished Scarf, originally uploaded by Needlings.

Remember when I started this? Me neither. June, I believe.
I absolutely love knittydirtygirl's yarn!

Now I have an excellently green scarf to go with my purple jacket.

Who Loves Ikea?

I do!

So I always get lost and will
never possess such a perfect display kitchen...
but one trip to Ikea and I feel loads better about MACFair
that's coming up in a little under a month.

Two little metal shelve-y step-y things,
a little pink stool,
and a bright yellow metal storage pail,
and I feel like I'm almost there.

All I need is a rack of some sort for my totes.
Email me if you have any leads!

Here's my "test set up."
Don't mind the currently empty signs
and random bits of clutter scattered about!

Cloudy Day

It's a pretty sad looking day today...

And I just shipped out this happy little cloud custom pouch.

It was nice and sunny when I was working on it yesterday though.
Really pretty.
I love fall.

It's October!

I completely can't believe it.
The next month has been jumping up on me
too quickly lately.

I managed to get a new tote in the shop today.

A mushroom one:

I spent some time joining Twitter today.
Which is a fun little blogging update sort of site
for quick updates or those with short attention spans.

If I can fully figure it may find some of my "tweets"
making their way over here every once in awhile.
But in the meantime,
you can see them here!
