I think I mentioned before that I'm a bit obsessed with crafy blogs. A few of my favorites have some great tutorials and patterns for personal use. I made this adorable doll for Gabbie from Emily's pattern and tutorial. I think I could have stuffed her more, she's sitting kind of wonky,but what the hey.. it's my first one, live and learn. I do like her shifty eyes.

I am also a sucker for pincushions lately, this was a suprise to me, I never knew I loved them so much, but I do.. oh I do!! Oh, and the cute, cute pins to go in them. My heart skips a beat when I see them, I am without a doubt making some of those mine in the very near future ( maybe even today!)

The cute bird pattern came from another favorite blog of mine. Linda Brecht was kind enough to share her pattern. She had such a cute pincushion made from hers, I am making my birds into mobiles for an orphanage in Africa, but I decided that I would make myself a pincushion too, couldn't resist.

Gabbie is loving her dolly, so soft and pillowy! :) I hope everyone is having a wonderful evening, I'll have more to share.
Until then..
