It was Love at first sight

I delivered Kewpie yesterday and it was Love at first sight! She loved her so much that she commissioned two more outfits. She had two more naked babies with her that need little crocheted outfits.
One in bisque and a little plastic dollhouse type. They need a bit of cleaning first and they're pretty small so I'll have to work in smaller thread. I'm thinking size 30. I'll probably make more of a long crib dress rather than a toddler style since they're very babyish. My project list just keeps growing.

I love Kewpie

Hey there! it's been a while hasn't it? Life took over and my poor blog just got left to collect dust bunnies for a while. I'm back again.
Let's see, Joey is still our lovable Deputy Dipshit (or Jackass Joey depending on what nonsense he's gotten into)LOL! he's so dang spoiled to Daddy it's hard to say who's happier, Joey or Daddy...sigh....see what I mean?

I'm still watching Junior most days and he's just the angel of my eye. What a wonderful child to care for. Last week I was sitting at the kitchen table working on a pattern. He picked up my curve ruler and proceeded to play 'air guitar'. He even called it his "Ittar". now, how does a two year old know about playing air guitar???? isn't he just a cutiepatootie??
so, I suppose you're wondering why I said I love Kewpie for this blog title. I just finished a commission for a friend. She had scored an old kewpie at some flea market or something for an insanely cheap price. Poor thing was butt naked-the doll, not my friend-LOL!!! Anyway, the request was for a frilly little crocheted dress for Kewpie. I thought about it for a couple of weeks and looked for patterns but couldn't find anything I liked. I decided to just crochet off the top of my head so last Sunday I took the doll and thread and hook along while going on a bus trip(to a doll show no less). I really didn't want to just sit and ride with nothing to do. I was able to get the dress, panties and bonnet done on the bus. I finished the little shoes and then did all the final work tonight. I'll be delivering the doll tomorrow. I'm sure she's going to love it. this is a one-of-a-kind outfit as I didn't write down the pattern. I just crocheted. Isn't it adorable?? I even put little ruffles across the back of the panty.
well, I hope to be around a bit more often. I know, I know, you'll believe it when you see it. LOL.......sigh......
