Bait And Switch

Posted by lori . 11 Comments


Every Sunday I do a post about my creative journey under the category “Creating the Creator.” Over the years, I’ve done a variety of things…book studies, e-courses, challenges. The last three months, I worked my way through Creating A Life Worth Living by Carol Lloyd. I put a lot into it, so now I’m ready to take a little break and do something fun and different. Last week, I mentioned reading a book on creative writing, but then I saw a post on Audrey Electric about a doll she made and it reminded me of an unfinished project I have. Many years ago I bought four patterns from Hanging by a Thread. I finished one, but never got around to the other three. Now, I want to finish them up. I’m going to save the creative writing books for later and dig into this unfinished project.

Fall Doll & Quilt

The dolls’ names are Seedy Lady, Sunny Lady, Snowy Lady and…I can’t remember the one I finished. Spicy Lady?

Arms Detail

I must have gotten rid of the pattern when I finished her.

Apron Detail

The patterns include instructions for one doll and one mini quilt.

Apple Detail

I love little details, so these are very satisfying because they include loads.

Spice Detail

I don’t think the pattern company is in business any longer because I searched for them and couldn’t find any information.

Gingerbread Detail

I haven’t exercised my sewing skills in quite awhile. Hopefully, it’s like riding a bicycle…something you don’t forget.

    I should have written this on today’s blog instead of yesterdays, but I wanted to tell you have inspired me!
    Today I took an artist’s date!
    I have been a little despondent (and busy) since my job vanished at the beginning of March. Things have seemed so hectic since I thought about taking Beary Good Stuff to the next level.
    Today, hubby had to go to the nearest larger town for an appointment and instead of staying home and canning or cleaning or business plan writing, I went with hubby and I visited an old friend (ended up visiting with her son as she had stepped out of their coffee shop), went to the local art gallery and viewed their current exhibit and went to to the dollar store and bought some weird shaped canvases.
    I feel marvelous! Thanks for reminding me what me time can do! I feel better than I have in a long time!

  • Love the Spicy Lady, she looks good enough to eat:) Hope your rusty sewing skills are shining again!
