Playing favorites?

Well, we do in our house!

Mellie is a favorite and is sitting on the sofa….having a bad hair day, I might add!

I’ve been in the sewing mood lately so I’ve been BUSY BUSY…

and it’s FUN to make softies that turn out so cute!

There are a few more cats in the house now and when I got up this morning, my hubby had been ‘playing with dolls’! hahaha! And arranging cats. He has a lot of important things to do today but he still takes time to ‘play’! (I hope he doesn’t quit because I ‘tell on him’!)

And he likes to see me smile!

I didn’t take the brightness out of these photos…it’s Florida…it’s sunny and BRIGHT!

(I hope Prudence doesn’t see the teddy bear tossed aside! OH MY!)

Thanks to those of you who have asked if I am going to make any to sell. I haven’t quite ‘perfected’ my design but if I do, you’ll be the first to know! 

Take time to PLAY!!!

Oh my gosh, she is beautiful!! And so life-like!! Love your sewing, too. You're a woman of many talents, Diane!

Oh, Miss Lavender Dreams, I don't miss much. The first thing I saw was that tossed aside teddy bear. I know, he was sitting on the back of the sofa and the kitties got to playing "rough house" and poor little bear tumbled off the back of the sofa, right? Say yes, and you will be safe. Say no, ah....the wrath of Prudence is upon you. (o:

Mellie doesn't like teddy bears?

Hugs,
Prudence ♥

Your doll is so realistic, that when I saw the preview on my blog list I thought it was a little girl. :)

I love that you take time to play and I can see that you have quite a litter going there!;>) You know how it is when you get cats-they just seem to multiply...or is that bunnies? lol

Glad you have nice bright days there and thanks for telling all us dark skied Midwesterners about it! lol

Hope you had a great Thursday, Diane- xo Diana

Marcia said...

Diane, it has been such a delight catching up here today. From bad hair day Mellie and her adorable terry softies to that contagious smile under the sombrero. Whew, I've missed a lot. I think I need to sit on one of those Sholom Park benches for a while, maybe regain some energy with a tortilla or two. ;)
Always so much fun visiting with you, my friend. I'm challenging myself to stay away from the computer a little more often these days, so I joined a couple of local book clubs (I'm sure you'd love).
You're always in my heart.
Have a lovely weekend.
xoxo's
