Christmas doll

I received a wonderful bag of goodies from Heather on her return from Queensland. The gift bag was full of wool, material, beads, gadgets and so many other pretty things.

I couldn't keep my eyes off the wool and do admit I had to use my manners and not be distracted by it while Heather was visiting. I did restrain myself, however the minute Heather left I was cutting into some of the lovely material to make a cute Christmas doll.
I have made this doll before, and of course, she is from Homespun magazine. The original pattern has buttons spaced over her dress, but I thought this material was pretty on it's own without the buttons. Also whipped up very quickly was a scarf for next year. the pattern is feather and fan, and will look rather gorgeous with next years winter colours.

 The material below is already marked for a couple of Christmas bags.
 I am right into the Christmas spirit already and whilst the boys were away go karting, I stitched up this cute little stitchery.
We had a very hot day here today, an unreal temperature of 35 C!! No wonder we were all out of energy. I'm so excited about going back to work tomorrow and seeing all my work mates. All the best for the coming week. Regards, Anita.

Busy as always!! Looks like lots of goodies arrived on your doorstep. It doesn't surprise me to see a new doll and some more knitting, either.
Love the little stitchery you have done. What are your plans for that?
Hope it cooled down a bit for the start of school.
