I made these two new mermaids for two of my kids' friends, who just happen to be sisters ;) I hope they liked them, their mom Julie, who is a dear friend picked them up on her way home tonight. This was a very very late birthday present, I have learned my lesson, I will start all birthday presents well in advance.
This pattern is by the very sweet and talented AnaPaulaoli on Etsy
When my little girl saw the dolls and me taking photos, she ran to get her own dollies, and we had a nice photo session with Mermaids and her doll Pink, and her favorite doll of all times, ' Dollie', she is the reason why I started making my own dolls. I am happy that she also likes the ones that I have made for her so far ( the pink little girl and the purple mermaid, pattern also by Anapaulaoli.
I haven't posted a good photo of this either, it's a lady bug purse that I made for Dani earlier in the summer. I got this purse pattern from CrochetVillage on Etsy, she is also a very sweet lady, I plan to get more patterns from her in the future.
Finally a few shots of one of the biggest love of my life, my dear 17 year old PooToo, the orange kitty all curled up. She's been diagnosed with Cancer and is not expected to last much longer. I am trying to say my goodbyes and having a hard time with it. She truly is my oldest friend.
It's funny that it would be on her last year of her life that she would find a cat that she finally tolerates. She's never liked any cats.. well except for her own babies ( she had 3 ) and her sister Gordita ( my mom's 17 year old cat ). But here is proof of her eating with Gary our 3 year old deaf kitty. Maybe he is just a very special kitty, he has to be to win her over like that. This has never been seen PooToo sharinga food dish.. I thought I would never see the day.
Poor Gris watches on, she's always dreamed of sharing a dish with PooToo.. ( she is the gray kitty )
Finally his plan has been revealed! you see before he picked this spot to sit on, there used to be a ceramic cat there, looking just like that, funny enough this same cat broke it last week, and now look at him! he wanted to BE the cat in the mantel!
