old raggedy

No, not really old.
She is made new to look old.
 
 
I finished this Raggedy Ann this morning.
I have made quite a few raggedy' s
 starting when my kids were babies 40 years ago.
 
 
I had to have a bit of fun after I finished her legs.

rugs

Daughter knit and pearl signed me up for a mug rug swap.
With my heart not quite in it I made the first one.
Never sew with half a heart I say.
My top stitching was subpar.
 
 
I did find some cute patterns for them.
The rules were to use a fall theme
 with at least six fabrics and keep it mug size.
 
 
I hope the recipient feels free to use and abuse them
 with their crooked top stitching.

halloween 2018

Last week was dedicated to our granddaughters.
First we went to the 5th grade play our twin granddaughters were in.
One was a pig and the other a fox.
It was a pretty cute play.
 
 
From there we headed north to trick or treat with our North Dakota granddaughters.
Our 4-year-old decided two weeks prior to Halloween
 that grandma was going to be a witch and grandpa a zombie.
 
 
There may never be another chance that a grandchild
 wants to take grandma and grandpa trick or treating with them.

zombie doll

Our four-year-old granddaughter left the doll
 I made her outside and guess who got it?
One of their dogs.

It got chewed up pretty bad and she was devastated about it.
(I had a bit of fun editing here.)

The doll was sent home with grandma
in hopes that it could be nursed back to health.


What do you think?
As good as new?
