Softie wants new home....


Thought I'd show you my little softie doll that I crocheted for the Softies For Mirabel appeal. 
(I am really getting stuck into finishing things at the moment!)
She's all dressed up ready for a new home!

And this is the thing I was working on last post, the partay dress!
I am very happy with how this turned out, it was the most fun part to make too.
I made the dress and the doll up as I went, and I think it looks ok.

..........bit of a freaky, starey face, she looks a bit ditzy I think, my embroidery skills could use some improvement.

 .......just hanging around.....

........and with the other toys in the 'hood, just chillin' out....
Hope someone out there will love her.

I have a weekend of gardening and housework ahead of me so it was nice to get a finished project out of the way. 

What have you got planned for the weekend?
