Long Time No See..........

Real life gave me some grief over the last couple of months
there's been nothing to share,
hence my silent blog.

I'm so disappointed that my courtyard has had to be put on hold
for the time being.
Every week it's been fingers crossed that I could make it to Lidi's
for a lesson
and then
when it doesn't come off.

Miniature crochet took a holiday too
A dear friend suggested a swap!
What better way to get yourself out of a deep hole
than to put some love into
a miniature swap.

I feel like the luckiest person in the world today!!
I am the proud new mother of 
a Belly Button Baby,
designed by none other than the very talented
who made big sister Adelaide and big brother Christopher,
both of whom you've met before.
Now take a peek at Midget who is modelling the
Christening Layette
that I made for my end of the swap.

Bonnet, bootees, and pilcher designed by me.

Gown and petticoat inspired by a Doris Thurlow pattern
but made of finer thread with a finer hook
and downsized to fit this 1 3/4" baby doll.

And here she is with big sister!
Isn't she the cutest tiny thing?

There won't be any more miniatures happening for a couple of weeks,
my close work glasses broke :[
You might as well cut my hands off as take my glasses away!!
