we call her "Bitty"~
this is the little "Sunflower" dress
that I knitted for her...
who doesn't love
happy little sunflowers
blooming so bright and cheery?
the dainty neckline
is beaded to resemble a tiny
complete with a special
little sunflower bloom
to make it extra
each little bloom
is filled with tiny seed beads
to make the blooms
"made by gb"
(that's what our babes call me)
a happy little bluebird
sits on her nest...
(her pretty red wing is accented with seed beads)
you just know I would have to add
a little bird nest
to this dress!
the little neckline
is beaded from "shoulder to shoulder"
along the front of the dress...
this little dress was a delight to knit..
it fits her perfectly
and hangs beautifully
when she dances
"Daisy dress" from Minnow knits
(although I made some alterations in the pattern
to suit my own taste and to fit our "Bitty")
(a worsted weight wonder
that combines cotton, bamboo and silk
with a generous amount of elastic nylon)
this yarn has incredible
sheen and the stitches knit perfectly.
when knitted, it is a bit
weighty, but that only helps
to make the dress hang more beautifully.
Our little Bitty is beautiful
in this dress..
Welcome to fall....
I can feel it in the foggy mornings and at night when the temps drop -- at times, it's almost sweater weather in the evenings. Our days though, are incredibly hot -- so for at least the next few weeks, our summer will continue. We are trying to enjoy the last little bit of warm weather and our pool. I'm just not ready to give it all up yet!
I've been knitting like crazy, some pretties to share with you later this fall, and working on little dresses for our granddaughters. I have one more little dress to share with you in a few days...(it's adorable too!) I've also been making jam from a wonderful selection of summer fruits, spending lots of happy days in my kitchen! Everyday brings a new project of some kind and I seem to have happily been busy, busy, busy this entire summer...
Somehow, I totally missed out on the whole Instagram thing these past few YEARS! Hello!! --- well, I've caught up with the times and you can now find me on Instagram--just search for me
@ 2 Bags Full. I would love for you to be my Instagram friend!
The beautiful "BeachComber" nest was a wonderful success.
Thank you to those of you who sent me
such wonderful notes and to those of you
who sent letters and
I am so thrilled that you love your nests.
YOU are the reason that I make these little creations,
I am so grateful that you want to bring them into your homes
and that they bring you so much
