Oilily Inspiration

Well that was fun.   Waldorf Mama (aka Shelley Caskey) has had a custom in the works with me for quite some time.  This doll's clothing is made with some Oilily clothing that Shelley sent for me to use.  There was quite a bit to pull from and pinks, oranges  and reds were the basic palette.  I am really happy with the results.  Quality, fun fabrics never lose their appeal.

Mr. Hamby gets new Glasses

                                                               Check out those peepers.

     Mr. Hamby is retired from the Navy.  We are very fortunate to have superior medical insurance.  Instead of getting new glasses from our local eyewear place or even from the Navy Exchange where there is much to choose from,  my dear husband chose the ones he could get at no cost at the Navy Optometrist.  He had 3 different frames from which to choose  and these were the best ones.

   At first, I must admit, I mocked him and jeered at him.  Within a few hours I was starting to change my tune.  These industrial strength glasses started to work some crazy spell on me.  The little rivets, the thick brown frames.....the look of love (well that's what I see)  behind the bifocal lenses.  I have come to love these glasses.  Mr. H is also dabbling in contact lenses but this pair of glasses keep finding themselves back on his face and into my heart.

I'm Here! Really I am.

Wholly Smokes!  It is March and I haven't been seen in these parts since December.  I have been quite busy creating dolls and getting my sewing space in order.  I will have pictures of my new space very soon.  In the mean time here are a few things that I have recently been working on.
