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.

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.

Are you dreaming about a turkey dinner like I am?

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?
