Eliza Jane

So here is Eliza Jane, Bethany Bunny's younger cousin. She is a smaller version of my old fashioned bunny pattern, made again from a recycled wool sweater that I felted. I love making these!

Boughs of Holly

I just finished a couple of new Holly Pixies this weekend. I love the vintage look of this fabric!
And I've finished another snow pixie as well and added them both to the shop.

These are probably the last pixies for the year since I want to try and make at least one more bunny and crow girl before my last show this weekend. After that I'll need to concentrate on cookie making. Heaven forbid that even one type of Christmas cookie not make it onto the cookie platter! There might be a revolt! :) So look for a cookie recipe next time! Yum.....

Fa La La

Some little seasonal elves visited me today!

We're starting to get in the spirit around here! And, as we do every December 1st, we pulled down our vast collection of Christmas books so I'm happily perusing all the old favorites. Of course they are all kids books...well except Dickens ...because I just can't resist a great kid's book! ( Actually I have a hard time resisting books in general) I had to start with Big Susan by Elizabeth Orton Jones which, since its main characters are dollhouse dolls, is at the top of my list.

This is such a sweet story about love and the power of imagination and if you have children... or are just a big doll lover like me... I highly recommend it.
I promise to share some of my other favorites in the days to come, but in the meantime I'd love to know, what are your favorite Holiday/Christmas books?
