Hello, Internet~Land! I just wanted to pop in to post the link for the video I mentioned in the previous post. I was able to get it completed, and wanted to post it before I head off to sleep. I have a very busy work week coming. I was afraid that if I wait, it may not get posted until next weekend. So, here it is! Links to the new pattern can be found in the previous post as well as on the “Ready To Print” page. Wishing you all a very happy, peaceful, and productive week!

Getting Back in the Swing
Hello, hello, Friends in Internet~Land!
Well, I’m starting to get back into the groove of productivity. I have a new video all filmed (it just needs to be edited), I have a new BJD pattern set finished, I’ve won the most recent battle with ANTS in my house, AND I’m enjoying the task of beta reading/editing for a wonderful new & up-coming author! It was a very long couple weeks, but the Lord is always good, and the breather was very refreshing. My family member came through the first surgery well, and will soon move into the next phase of treatments. The funeral for my friend was very nice, and we got to see some dear friends who traveled to be here. We’ve had good reports from the other friends, who are hanging in there one day at a time. So, I guess that’s where we are. All in all, life moves along with both its ups & downs. Thank you for your support and kind comments here, on facebook, and on my videos. You all are so thoughtful, and it’s much appreciated.
Now, on to our dolly joy! The video I’m working on shows how you can use “people patterns” to make patterns for dolls. This set is from doing just that. It’s from an old pattern of mine, but I’m not sure just how old it is, so to avoid potential problems, we’re simply calling it the “ruffle dress.” It’s a loose fitting dress that can be either tea length or full length with a full, flowing, ruffled skirt and sleeves. I reproduced the pattern for both 1/3 SD and 1/4 MSD BJD sizes, and it should work for a very large variety of body shapes due to the loose fit. I will post the link & picture here as well as on the “Free Stuff” and “Ready To Print” pages. Hopefully the “how to” video will be edited and posted very soon, so stay tuned for that. Again ~ thanks so much for all the love & right back at’cha!
Thank you so much for stopping by the site and for watching my posts. I just wanted to update that I may be taking a little bit of a break. Sometimes, life just gets a bit complicated & energies need to be directed elsewhere for a while. We have a family member dealing with a pretty major heath thing, I went to the funeral for a friend this weekend, another friend has a very serious health issue, and two other friends also had to endure family losses. It’s been a little much, so I’m gonna take a short break from social media to process & renew. Be assured, I’ll be back again very soon!
Much love as always ~ missy
A Slow Weekend
Hi, everybody in Internet~Land. I hope it’s a good day for you. I am happy to be home today enjoying the first day of my three-day weekend. I should be coming up with an extensive “to-do” list, but instead I’ve been leisurely cleaning, baking, and watching the newly released English version of Naruto Shippuden ~ the LONG awaited Final Battle! I have also been trying to decide on the subject of my next video. I have a couple directions I could go, but have not made a decision yet. In the meantime, I have a new pattern for the Tonner Matt body style. This set consists of a pair of cargo shorts and a baseball style T-shirt. I’ve actually sewed this pattern several times, so it shouldn’t have too many untried glitches. It may also work for those of you who have 1/4 scale MSD BJDs. I can’t say for certain, as I don’t have any that size myself. Anyways, it’s a fun pattern for a more casual spring/summer time look. OK ~ now back to my show & deciding on something else to cook!
