No green thumb here, but love of sunflowers

   I don't have a green thumb at all ,but have to show you my little project SUNFLOWERS I love them.I have only grown these once years ago,but now that we are settled I decided to try them again.It is so amazing to me to see the giant flowers that just start from a small seed.To me they are happy flowers and seem to make such a strong statement when you look at them.I started the mammoths,red velvets and some mixed colors.The mammoths are my favorite.The others are new to me so we will see how they turn out.Just the day before(day 6 since I started the seeds) you could just see some green popping thru the dirt,but look how they looked at day 7

Day 8 they are above the rim of the pot.The mammoth are in the round pot,and vevets are in the square pan.I already have the mixed colored ones planted,but it's just to hot today for me to plant these.Hopefully I'll get them done this weekend.....Now this is another project I have been working on thanks to my wonderful daughter.There's no way I could have done this without her.My hubby and I was sitting on the deck and we heard this noise coming up from her house.Here she came on her tractor and cart with rocks in one load then she got another load of tools .I have to take some more pics to show you,but I am so happy with it.She had got me a bunch of plants for mothers day and we had to get them planted soon so that really got us motivated in getting these things done.Tomorrow we are suppose to work on her pond and I'll get pics of that too.
  Soon as I get my planting done I plan on getting back to my dollies.I have so many running thru my head at times it's hard to think of anything else....Have a blessed day   HUGZ Diane

Surgery was a success

BEFOREAFTERHolding her flowers

  She was all dressed and had on her little hat and ready to have her pics taken.When I was posing her she got so sad.She wanted to hold her little bouquet of flowers and could'nt do it without support.So we had a little discussion and she talked me into putting some wire in her arms.SO I undressed her and with much care I removed her arms took out all the stuffing.Measured her for the wire added that and the stuffing sewed her arms back on and now she's so happy.She said I could show you pics of her little limp arms before and after,but we have to get her all dressed before I can show  her full view which I plan on doing later today.Hehe no I am not loosing it just enjoying what I do.Hope you are too...Have a blessed day......................

Toooo many things at one time

   I can't believe how fast time flies,I hoped to have some pics of a few of the dolls I have been working on,but I did'nt get them finished yet.I have been jumping all over the place.Made a witch hat the first I ever made.I think it looks pretty good just hav'nt figured what I am going to do with the bow so pinned it on till I make up my mind.Soon as I get her done I'll post pics of my 1st witch...
Then I cut out a little mouse I love them,but don't know if I can handle working with such small pieces.
I think he's cute so far.I pinned the pieces together to show you,but before I sew him all together I think I am going to put wire in his arms and tail to make him more posable....
         I've also been thinking about doing some frogs maybe some cats too.My mind just won't settle down enough to get anything totally done is this related to spring fever????? I don't like having all these unfinished projects waiting on me.I also have 3 other dolls just needing a little finishing touches to them too.I think I'd better stop here and get to finishing these all up.Boy by writing this all down I am starting to feel so overwhelmed and thats when I get myself into trouble.So as I get them finished I'll post the pics....Then I'll move on to my next little character....So guess I better get started and get something finished.Have a great day.........
