Sammy Celebrates the 4th!

Pattern - "Dear Ones" by Kezi

"This is Sammy's first 4th of July and he is saluting the soldiers parading past him. Perhaps his father is standing beside him doing the same or his father is one of the soldiers. In either case, it is a solemn occasion for a little guy proudly holding the flag and standing at attention.

Little Blaze
A Turnip Truck Tot - Pattern by Judi Ward

Blaze had to get to the Turnip Truck on time so she would have a ride to see the Easter Bunny.  Blaze was riding along when that old rickety Turnip Truck hit a bump and ... there she went!  Right out of the Turnip Truck!   The Easter Bunny knows about the old Turnip Truck and how Turnip Truck Tots get thrown out sometimes so he leaves "little helpers" behind, to look for Turnip Truck Tots.  A little bunny helper found her, she gave the bunny a carrot and he took her to the Easter Bunny who gave her an Easter Basket.

GELSOMINA FIRST SUMMER
Doll by Mara Franco
from... ITALY


I chose the theme of the summer holidays (Ferragosto). It 's the first time Gelsomina sees the sea and her response is very natural, she is content and relaxed, she would catch the waves crawling towards them while the languid breath of the sea gently cradles her...

I used a very simple pattern drawn by me, a double layer of highly elastic synthetic knit (micro), the result was a shapeless ball and I had to model a lot with needle and thread. Gelsomina is anatomically correct, 33 cm = 13 inch., it contains metallic wire. It is covered by two handkerchiefs with crocheted border. I made the ring buoy from a rubber bag and I scribbled over with nail polish "Welcome to the Mediterraneo seaside ". Hand-dyed fabric. Wonderful-Kezi's face look tutorials."

Alice ready for Canada Day

Alice is ready to celebrate Canada Day which is July 1, the date that the provinces of Canada became a country. She is very excited about the celebrations - the barbecues, the fireworks, and is begging to stay up late that evening. Alice was born in January after 3 months of labor.

She is Judi Ward's "Newborn Alice". My friends have been enjoying her antics, and one even brought her a newborn Pampers. She is very proud of her hair which was crocheted from fun fur yarn. When her face was painted on, I looked at her and wailed "she's got attitude". There comes a point when the doll takes over the creation. She has been fun to make and interesting to live with.
