Busy, busy bee.....

So much going on this winter. Seems like the days pass as quickly as they begin. Sometimes I get frustrated because I have so many things to do, I don't know what to do next. I've been trying to stay focused on homeschooling and family, but I've also managed to do a few other things after spending two full weeks of this month sick. I'm going to show some pictures of a doll I made for Anna and a friend of hers for Christmas. Yes I did make these in Dec., but they were so cute, I didn't want to forget them and thought posting a picture would be a good way to always remember. Also, perhaps someone else will see and be inspired. She's a "flip-flop doll". I found the idea in Gooseberry Patch Christmas book #10. Anna thinks she is just the best. Also I've been doing some knitting, (with a little help from my friends) and I've got a new quilt on the machine downstairs. I've decided to make my four children each a quilt this year, so I have to get started on that now! Also I'm getting ready to my spin my first two ply yarn. I've spun two spindles of yarn and now I will reverse the wheel and spin them together to make a nice two ply. It is the coolest thing, that spinning wheel. Can't wait to get it all done! Better go get busy at doing something now...the clock is ticking.
