It's a boy

and his name is Nick and he is going to live here with me.

Kinder dolls

unlike the twins who are going to live at a friends place.
Once again thanks Jodie for a great pattern.
I have a few more to make - 3 as shop samples for Hettie's Patch and a set for my sewing room and one for Gemma.
I was really pleased with the red wool cardigan it took me a few goes to get it right. I am thoroughly enjoying playing with dyes.

Kinder dolls

I saw this out in Blogland and now have no idea where, so if you know let me know so I can give the appropriate acknowledgment. It is a quick little project draw a circle using a hoop write what you like and stitch.
I love Winnie the Pooh.

Congratulations! He's gorgeous- where were all these boy dolls when my kids were little? They had to settle for dragging around one of my old dolls, much to their father's horror! Beautiful sewing as always!

I am sure that I have seen the hoop stitcheries on meet me at mikes blog. However I just went there for a quick look and couldn't find them. She does have a lot of posts though so it could be that I just didn't look properly. www.meetmeatmikes.blogspot.com

He is adorable - with such a cheeky expression. Love the fabric you have used on his hat!

The Pooh stitchery is cute - that would be a great project for in front of the TV.
