Felt Fun!

Boy, has it been a crazy fall and winter!  First I had a nasty 6-week fibromyalgia flare-up and then, when that was finally over, 2 weeks later I had shingles starting on Christmas day.  What a Christmas present!  After the shingles healed up, I had one week of near-normal health and then was hit with the flu!  Yikes!  I'm just starting to feel more normal--still a bit low on energy with a nasty cough, but at least I'm on the mend.  Goodness, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I'll stay well for a while and I'll be able to keep you more up-to-date.
 
On the crafting front, I haven't had the energy to do much, but our college girl had some fun over her holiday break.  Look at this sweet little felt doll she made and its two dresses!
 
I love the feather stitching she did on this dress--it looks so fresh!

And this little outfit is a Irish dance costume she designed complete with ghillis (the Irish dance shoes)!
 
I hope this little note finds all of you in Blogland warm and well!  Take good care of yourselves!
Hugs,
Cheryl

  2. Well, now that you have gone through all those illnesses, there's nothing left but good health (hopefully.) Your daughter's talents are wonderful. Love that little doll. Is it from a pattern or did she make it up?
