Friday Night with Friends.


Friday Night with Friends
 
A warm hello to you all. Tonight I wanted to use my craft time wisely so I decided to plan a good game of catch up. Last time I posted, I was struggling with my UFO’s that had appeared out of nowhere!!Finished my  doll I was working on during my 'Muddled Up' time. She now has a face, shoes and hair on her head. 
 
 I went to the library today and found a fantastic book and made this.....
Tilda doll

The pattern is a Tone Finnanger design and the book is called Tilda’s winter ideas. A great book for other interesting ideas too. She is only a small gal, all of about 6 inches high, but very sweet.
I also finished stitching up a knitted dog coat for Max, who is going on 13 years old this year and winter is really rough on him. His kennel has a big cushion, blankets and carpet, but he was still feeling the cold. Now with his coat, he should feel extra warm. It was a free pattern from the net, click here if you would like to make one. It is for an 8ply yarn but I used chunky and it fits him just right.
Max’s knitted coat
 
 
Another couple of excellent finds at the library, these two knitting books. Very lovely patterns indeed.
 
Fantastic books
 Our library is pretty well stocked with quilting and knitting books, we are lucky. What’s happening at your house for Friday Night with Friends? I can’t wait to visit the other gals, to see what they’ve made. We are a group of crazy crafters all getting together in our own homes and take comfort in knowing we are all doing the same thing on the same night. Why not come with me and check out everyone else...click here!
Cheers, .Anita.

Love the dollies - my sewy friend up the street is MAD for Tilda, and has all the books - she even gets them before they come out in English, lol. So many if the items have very TINY pieces - you ladies are TALENTED to not scream bloody murder when trying to stuff those tiny little appendages! Max is a handsome lad, and looks stylin' in his new sweater! Hi, there, Max - it's nice to meet you!

Your dolls are so sweet and your dog is one lucky guy with such a warm jacket to keep the winter chill off .

Cute dolls you have been making there. Love the little Tilda doll.
Sweet coat you've made for Max.
Enjoy Sunday

Greetings Anita. I love your dolls. You've done a great job with the face and hair. I think you've inspired me to venture into doll making. With two little princesses, this grandma will need to get busy.
I've become a "FOLLOWER" of your blog and hope to visit often.
Take care.

The dolls both look lovely. I do enjoy all the Tilda books. So creative!
Max looks adorable in his coat. I know how hard it is to keep older pets warm. I am sure he appreciates it,too.
