{this moment} - A single photo capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special moment. A moment I want to remember forever. Rachel's first task as an eight year old was to write and solve a math problem. I love that kid. 

Meet Poppy




I finished Rachel's birthday present. Her name is Poppy and Rachel loves her very much. It was so fun making her and I have grand plans to learn to sew some doll clothes. 

I'm already making a new doll. What do you think she'll turn out like?

Doll-making can really wear a girl out

I worked hard today sewing a couple of Waldorf dolls at Inspired. My eyes are tired, my neck is sore, and I skipped lunch - all of which have had a bad impact on my mood tonight. 

I'm going to bed early and plan to spend tomorrow outside doing yard work. The fresh air and exercise will do me some good. Have a beautiful weekend. 

Just a start...

{this moment} - A single photo capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special moment. A moment I want to remember forever. My Rachel and I went to the community theater high school production of A Wrinkle in Time. I love taking her to the theater.

She doesn't look like much yet, but this is how a Waldorf doll starts - just a tight ball of wool, some tubular gauze, and cotton interlock knit fabric stitched up tightly. She has potential. Rachel wanted another doll for her 8th birthday so I'm working with Jeni of Inspired to create this new doll for Rachel to love. Saturday I will spend most of the day working on her body and the details of her face. I should only have the hair to do at our last class Tuesday.

I am seriously thinking about making a little brother doll for Julia. She's been asking for one (both a brother and a doll) for quite a time now. Although I have no plans to give her a new baby brother I can make up a little baby doll for her to love on.

Have a wonderful day and make something with your hands.

My very first Waldorf inspired doll was Fern. She was a birthday gift for Julia.

Then I made Iris for Rachel's birthday.
