Primitive lil annies

Good morning, Here are a couple of little Annie's I just finished up and listed on eBay this morning.

This little one is only 7 inches long the smallest round headed doll I have made so far .

I did up tiny little socks and felt shoes for this one . I was having so much fun dressing this dollie . She is about 12 inches long . They can both be found here .

I Have a ton of things to do today so I need to get busy.But I wanted to stop in and show you what I spent all day yesterday working on finishing them up . Have a good day I will chat at you soon : )

I liked the saying I found and used on the image I posted yesterday so I put it on her little trinket box .Here is the link to her on eBay if you want to take a peek :) .

lil Annie

I just finished this little Americana Annie up and got her listed on eBay . Americana is my favorite so I love doing anything in those colors . It is so cold here today a big change from the nice weather we had the last two days we might get sleet later which has me worried my son is in Iowa today for show choir and they head home very late on chartered buses normally it is about 1:30 am before they pull into the school. I just hope they have a safe trip home .

Yesterday he came home very bummed he tried out for baseball at school the second year now that he did not make it . It is so hard to see because he really puts his heart into everything he does and to not make it again this year has me worried I don't want him becoming discouraged. The bad part about it is they let kids from two of the other high schools try out which I do not understand at all since it is a team at his high school makes it very unfair for the kids that go to school there and can't get on the team due to the extra kids from the other schools . But after all I am a mom and when we see our kids hurting we want to kiss that boo boo and make it go away but some things we just can't do that with . At the age of 16 he reminds me often he is all grown up and ok but mom's can tell by just looking in those eyes :)

Little Miss Haley has been in working at her sewing machine which was a gift this past year for Christmas it was the top thing on her wish list . She made her very first doll today with very little help from mom It has been so fun peeking in on her seeing the pride in those eyes as she shows me what she has accomplished It is the simple little things that bring so much joy at times .

Well I am off to get this house cleaned up I had a request from hubby and the kiddo's to make homemade brownies and hot cocoa so I better get busy doing that Hubby keeps peeking in here with this look of hmm where are they lol . Have a good evening I will talk to you soon .

Primitive Raggedy Annie

Hello, I got another Annie up on eBay as a buy it now . Here are a couple pictures of her. It is so nice here today later we might get some rain and cooler temps but that is ok we can always use the moisture. Hubby got home early today he had to leave work at noon due to the plant having to cut hours OUCH!! They found out yesterday there will only be 36 hours a week for a while due to the economy and they are trying to keep everyone working right now .

Hubby used to work 70-80 hours a week bless his heart that dropped to 55 a few months back and now 36 we are just a tad bit stressed but all will be fine we are used to budgeting and cutting lots of corners and I know most everyone is having to do that right now . We just have to have lots of faith and be very careful .and remember that things could be so much worse .So I will be out looking for work next week to help out as much as I can . I will still be making my lil creations when ever I have time which when things get like this it is major motivation for me so probably more so then I was just the kick in the rear end I needed maybe lol :)

Right now hubby is out playing catch with little miss Haley I can see them from my sewing room. I have a window in here that gives me a full view of the back yard I love it . She is full of giggles playing with daddy music to my ears :)

well I am off to play at the sewing machine and make some more dollies . Have a good day I will chat at you soon !!!

Hello, I hope you all had a good day today . I just got this little Americana Annie and the bunny listed on ebay here is the link to my ebay if you want to check them out .

The annie sold this morning :)

Primitive Vintage Bunny

Hello, here are a couple pictures of a bunny I just finished up .She will be listed soon I just have to work on some more pictures , she should be on eBay sometime today . I spent all day yesterday lost in little Annie's surrounded by little painted legs hanging up drying and busy stuffing little arms , stitching little faces and such. Now just to sew some hair on them and dress them , which is the plan for the rest of today to try and finish at least a couple of them and get them on etsy or eBay .
Starting tomorrow Haley has spring break until the 16Th and I promised her we would start working on a special scrapbook for her which she is very excited about . Natte and Brendon start there vacation Monday which will be a nice break from all the running around although I am sure there will still be plenty of that ,always is :) If it is nice enough next week Brendon and I are going to try to start getting the garage cleaned up and ready for a garage sale I have so much stuff in there yikes!!! I need to get it all out of there and cleaned up for Natte's Graduation party . Last year I did not and we had rain and wind for Zach's which was not good so I need to get busy and start planning all of that soon. If I get it all cleaned up and organised which is much needed anyway maybe just maybe we will have nice weather that day lol .
Well I better get busy those little Annie's are needing my attention and I have pictures to take . It is going to be a beautiful day today in the 70's so I need to try and squeeze in some time for a long walk later to relax and take in some nice fresh air and just enjoy the beauty around me not to mention I need the exercise . Have a great day!!!
