(He is named after my Grandfather Keefe)
He's only about 7 inches tall from head to toe
He has thread and button joints, and is far from perfect.
I also learned how to make french knots, tho you can barely see them in the center of the flower as i used pale yellow for the center.Next projects? Knitted teddy bears. I have two different projects going here and will hopefully have something to show for all those stitches soon! I am loving this new skill i am learning!
Here is my little Fukien Tea tree... Can you see the little red fruit on the branch?
The little white buds you can see below the fruit will open in a few days to reveal tiny white flowers....

The birthday cakes
The Bouncey Bounce was full of bouncers all day long. I even got in there for a quick bounce or two... (not my cup of tea tho...)
Lots of bouncing action!
The boys collected bugs and put them in the critter cage
The presents were opened, and were all wonderful
but there was one present that stood out above all else....Lola's present from her cousin Ryan...
her first car
after carefully reading the instructions
She was ready to go!
Ryan made sure she got around alright in her new wheels.
A kiss for the car
What a great day!
The Onesies are hand stencilled first and then hand painted with my original designs...
More needlework too...
Two more knitted hats for children...The multi colored one for babies and the red hat for a bigger child.
The wool scarf was crocheted with some yarn i bought from The Paper Sparrow. Beautiful muted color.... Next project? More sweater practice, some seasonal hats for children, and some hand knit teddy bears!
And how amazing is it that Lola was born on the very same day as her big brother Seth! Everything about this day is special...
What a difference a year makes....
Happy Birthday to two of the people i love the most in the whole wide world!
