Whoosh...


...and it's February....
now how did that happen?
Unlike many...it would seem...
...I do love the month of January...
...a whole new year stretching out ahead...
...soooo many possibilities...a time to make plans...
and it always flies by too quickly



...and I'm definitely loving bringing home 
pots of pretty winter flowering bulbs
to brighten up the new shelves in my workroom
(lots of reorganising going on at the moment too ;) )
The snow on the roof just a few days ago created a 
soft, luminous light which was just beautiful in here 



...and as you can see at the top there
for anyone who has asked about the doll kits...
the Doll Kit Shop is open again....hurrah!
lots of lovely yarn adorning the shelves




The only doll not available at the moment 
is Molly (top right) as two of her shades have completely sold out
but her kit should be ready again in the next week or so
and I'll update the page when that happens...

(Update...'Molly' Doll Kits are now available again here)


I hope you've had a great start to 2015
It's definitely lovely to 'open the doors' here again 

A big thank you to everyone who visits

I've lots of blog reading to catch up on 
(I'm feeling more than a little bit like the 'White Rabbit ;) )
so definitely looking forward to putting my feet up and visiting friends
.....see you very shortly... x

I 'll also be back soon with knitting news
and more.....Ah, yes......


Until then

  Take care

  1. I agree with you Susan on January, I don't mind it at all, as you say the whole year stretches out in in front of you and it's a time to tidy and plan! I would like time to slow down a bit now though so we can enjoy the next few months, sometimes it all goes way too quickly!
    Lovely to see all your little dolls again and I'm looking forward to your knitting news! :)

  9. How I love your colorful world, Susan! And though I am not posting for the time being, I am still present and enjoying my visits to my favorite blogs. YOU ARE ONE OF THEM! I will be back one day, and hopefully, with a book that I am working on.

    Have a cozy day with a cup of tea at your side as you create such beauty! Anita

  10. Ahh, you've chosen a good word in Whoosh to describe the speed of January! The New Year can bring us renewed energy and enthusiam...and that renewal can easily fill our days. Isn't it grand that the daylight's increased hours are becoming apparent?

  11. I am not a knitter (at least not in the real sense), but I so enjoy your lovely dolls and I'm amazed that you can think these up and write out the pattern. That must be quite a feat. At least in my mind :) I've always worked in crochet and used to crochet dolls and animals as well as doilies, and children's sweaters, which I created one of my own for children at one time. But now on to different things at the moment. Anyway, I really do love what you create, and always enjoy coming by and seeing your posts.

    Hugs,
    Marianne
