Hello There.






Sorry it has been so long.  It was even hard for me to find my blog after letting so much dust fall on it.  The blogging gods are definitely frowning on me.  This Pink Cheeks is a special request from a lovely woman who made me blush when she described how much her daughter liked Carlos Jr..  She has a bun in the oven and wanted a Mary Poppins doll for her daughter to give as a gift to her brand new, yet to enter this world sister, which I think is completely sweet.  I did Mary Poppin's body weeks ago, and then for some reason I got stuck in a sewing funk.  I was stuck.  It was like being waste-deep in tar.  Mary Poppins kept staring at me with her button eyes, sad and arm-less.  Every day I would come home from work and say, "Today is the day I sew Mary some upper limbs!"  Then, I wouldn't even be able to exert enough sewing energy to plug in the machine.  I kept imagining how the musical would have been if Mary Poppins was arm-less, and how she would have had to hold the handle of the umbrella she floated down with in between her toes and it made me so sad.  But, today Mary demanded at me that I suck it up, take a spoon-full of sugar and sew her up some arms!  And I did!  Woo!  

In other news, my husband, Joseph, finished his MFA degree!  I am so happy and proud of him (and also excited that he finally has time to do laundry again).  I wanted to include some images from his thesis show for you to Ooooooh and Ahhhhh at:





Enjoy the sunshine!
