Taking Advantage of my Medicine

Howdy, Internet~Land! Well, the doctor gave me some anti-inflammatory medication that is at least helping as long as I take it. We yet have to see how it works for the long term once it’s done, which will be soon. While it’s still working, I’ve put in a bit of time getting these pages rearranged, and I think the site is now pretty much up to date. In my process, I did find one new pattern that was ready but not yet posted, so here you go! It’s the zip-up SD sized Hoodie. Enjoy!


Site Changes!

Hello, hello, dear Internet~Land! Thanks so much for coming to visit my Blog/Website. I hope here you can find encouragement and inspiration for your own creative journeys. Just a bit of news for you ~ I’m making some changes to the site, so it’s easier to find what you want. I’m adding new Ready To Print pages that will be categorized and will have the images and PDF links placed together. The first one, “Ready To Print – Paper Dolls,” is now finished and added to the MENU at the top of the site, so all the Paper Doll Sets are now on that page. I’ll be making these changes a little at a time, but rest assured, none of the patterns will be removed from their normal locations until they are safe on their own new pages. Patterns will also still be linked in the Blog posts when they were introduced. So, please “stay tuned” for updates as I get our space more organized! All the best to you for a wonderful day!

My “Mandatory” Break

Hello, all you wonderful people in Internet~Land! This will be short and sweet, but I wanted to check in with the latest. Had the MRI on my hand. Then I was off to physical therapy which has been good for trying to loosen up the inflamed tendons. Though I’ve only seen a little improvement, the sessions are pleasant and give some pain relief. I’m applying hot/cold baths and wraps to help improve blood circulation along with some slow and steady stretching. Still no sewing or pattern drafting. Am off to the doctor again on March 1, so we’ll see what happens then. In the meantime, I can still shop! heeheehee!!!

Some January News and Fun

Howdy there, Internet~Land! Sorry it’s been a bit since I’ve said, “Hello.” Sometimes, life just makes you say, “…hmmm.” Well, the new year started with high hopes, but then another wave of “fun” raised it’s head. My projects been very few and far between because I’m dealing with some weird stuff on my right hand. I was finally able to see a doctor, only for him to say, “Wow, this is not what I expected; it is really unusual.” After x-rays, I am now waiting on an appointment for an MRI. Hopefully it will give more information on what needs to be done next for some healing and pain relief. With that said, I’m not sure when I’ll post next, but in the meantime will leave you with a couple patterns to try out. Wish me luck!

Christmas Gifts 2021 #8

Hello, Internet~Land, and Happy New Year! I’m kinda sneaking this gift in as #8 because where I am, it is still December 31. I have a few more hours before the new year arrives. Our last Christmas surprise is a third scale (SD) Mori Style Pattern Set for the fellas! I made the set for the gals quite a while ago, and as I was deciding what I wanted to do for the new SD size Chocolate, I thought a complimentary male set would be a fun project. This collection has seven different pieces, so be ready for a LOT of sewing! I will also have videos coming to show drawing out the pattern, sewing the hat, choosing fabrics, and putting together the pieces, so be ready for more fun to come. Here’s wishing you the very, very best for 2022!

Christmas Gifts 2021 #7

Howdy, howdy, Internet~Land! Here is surprise #7 for you ~ the Snow Faerie Boy to compliment the Snow Faerie Girl posted a couple days back. I thought it would be fitting to complete the set, since we’re now enjoying several new inches of snow! I don’t know how long the white yard and streets will stick around, but these snowy little munchkins should keep the sparkly, wintery wishes around for quite a while. Enjoy!

Christmas Gifts 2021 #6

Hello, Internet~Land! I hope your holiday weekend has been happy! Though we had a lot going on in the days leading up to the 25th, our Christmas day was actually very relaxed. Since we’re still in the holiday season, not yet having come to the new year, I have another gift ready for you. This pattern set will complete the third version of the Long Tailored Coat Pattern Set. In previous posts, we have both the MSD (39cm) and SD (66cm) sizes, and now we have the smaller 1/6 size designed for the 11″ BTS fellas made by Mattel. With all three sizes finished, hopefully you will have one that works or is at least easy to alter to your needs. Happy Christmas, everyone!
