Blue without you!

Isn’t it funny how we remember the things you didn’t have as a child?
I remember wanting this doll called Thumbelina …she was tiny, had a cloth body so that she felt like a real baby and had a string in her back that you pulled and she squirmed.
I never did get her but I never forgot her…isn’t that funny?!
I wonder if any of you remember her?

I was talking to my little sister about this and she told me how she always wanted a “blue” bedroom but as a kid she wasn’t allowed to have a blue room (blue was for boys)
I had the pink bedroom and she had a lilac bedroom ( that probably explains why she hates lilac till today)

This gave me ideas for my sisters Christmas gifts.
I couldn’t give her a “Blue” room but I could give her a few blue things to put in her crafting room.






This is her & I sitting on a pony…it was always her favorite picture of us as kids.

I included a key since she has the key to my heart, some music sheets since she loves to dance and “blue” since she always wished it.

Since I love Teddy bears I had to make her a bear of her own to hug when I am not there. The arms & legs were attached with buttons so that they are moveable…she can pose him how she likes.

bear  bear stand He is my first Tilda bear (from the Sew Pretty Homestyle book)…isn’t he to cute!

Last but not least a little heart.I bought the little wooden owl button looooong ago and knew one day I would make something with it (she loves owls)


            Do you think that is enough “blue” ?? for eva

Every once in a while I actually do make something !
