I am taking a sewing and blogging break. I finished all my Christmas sewing, and I'm giving my machine a rest. Life has been overwhelming, in some ways, over the past few months, primarily with the illness and death of my mom. It was only a few months ago that we lost my mother-in-law, as well. We've had staph infections, brain surgery, broken feet and ribs, and all sorts of other things going on in our family. We have had some real blessings, too! We've welcomed one new baby and another one is to be born soon. But, with the holidays approaching, I just think I need a break.
Let me leave you with these photos of MY Barbie wearing a new dress and vest that I crocheted for our granddaughter who will soon be five! She wants Barbie stuff for Christmas, and she has a birthday soon, so I thought I'd try my hand at knitting and crocheting some little items of clothing. Boy, does Barbie ever need a new hair style! I got this doll in 1963! I also have Ken and Midge. None of them have clothes anymore, so maybe I should make them some.
