Storage for Beaded Dolls

Hi Guys:

Another beautiful sunny day in Prescott, in the 80's, no wind and were loving this gorgeous weather.

Some of my friends on my Beaded Art Dolls group on Yahoo wanted to see how I store my dolls.
So, here are a couple pictures. As you see some of my dolls are laying down, have to find more stands for them. I"m not really happy with this set up but its all I have right now. Maybe someday I can find something different.

Potatoe Chip knitting scarf

Okay guys, many of you have asked me to post pictures of this pattern that I have been doing all summer, I have five made now! Trying to use all my Rayon yarn up by making these, they are so easy and you would love to do this pattern if your a knitter.

And the heat has finally broken here, its been such a Hot summer here, very much unlike it should be here, usually in the 90's but we have been in the l00's for days and days. Now were in the 70's this week and all the doors and windows are open. Its so nice to sleep at night under two quilts with the slider open!

Hope you all are enjoying your Fall too!

New Creation for summer 2011

And here is the front of my tree.

New Creation for summer 2011

Well summer is still here in Prescott, Arizona. It has been hot, hot, and very humid the whole summer, many many days over l00 and not much time spent on my deck this year, only in the early mornings and you all know I'm not a early person! VBG

Life goes on and I have decided to try and sell my house and move to something smaller, I hope this is the right decision, right or wrong, I'm carrying on with the sale and see how it goes. So far, I have had a lot of traffic but no offers.
I plan to stay in the Prescott area only in a much smaller place.

Here is a new creation by me, my own original design of my interpretation of a Goddess of the Forest. I drew her on paper and sent to to our doll maker in Prescott Valley, Ronda Kivett, she made the tree for me many years ago and I finally got her done, she is partially beaded and I like her that way. She was great fun to work on and I love her, I hope you do too. All hand beaded, sequins, various stones and a hot sun on her back for the hot summer we have had here!

Great Gdaughter Allison visit

Well here we have my sweet GGD Allison, it was her first visit to meet Grandma and her Mommy Jessica too which is my g/sons Dannys wife.

When I found out they were coming to visit Grandma of course she had to have her first sweater from her Grandmother. She will have to grow into it but I think she liked it. It was fun to make and it was l00% cotton yarn and a very easy pattern.

It was wonderful to have all of them here with me for l0 days, just so wonderful to not be alone and have family here with me. I hope they will return to visit again very, very soon.

Healing Doll

Here is a Healing Doll I made for my good friend Kim in Prescott.
She has been going thru a hard, hard time with her health and thought she would enjoy a Healing Doll to help her thru her bad times.

Lace Shawl

Here is a knitted Lace Shawl from a class at the Sedona Knit shop, different colors but I can wear it with a lot of things. It was hard at first to follow a chart but after I got into it it was pretty easy.

A special thankyou to my friend Marcia Kearns Prescott, for helping thru this pattern, she is the best.
