Katie!


Well another weekend came and went so fast, but at least I did manage to get a few things accomplished.
Weather wise it was dismal and grey at times, so I decided to make my own sunshine in little Katie with her sunshine yellow dress!

Now I have to finish up the little panda and then start on another ballerina mouse, thank you Terri and Cindy for being so patient.Between showers my husband took a photo of this little baby bird, he had a mouthful of thistle seed and came to the pond for a drink, I thought he looked so cute and fluffy.He also took this picture of a rose...just for me, what a guy!

Happy Monday, whatever you may be doing!

Happy Monday! I think we are getting some of your same weather here! Katie in yellow is perfect! That is my stepmom's name and I think of yellow when I think of her! I like that you knitted the shoes on this one and her little dress is a little retro! We just got done visiting Caroline's new teacher at an Open House and stopped at the bookstore... I ended up buying "Twilight"!!! Now I know I'll never get anything done!

Sweet little Katie - I love her and her outfit. You never cease to amaze me Kathy!! Love your outdoor pictures - that bird is so sweet and innocent.

That little baby bird is gorgeous. No baby birds here at the moment. Too cold. Your hubby did well to get the shot without it flying away! He must be a silent stalker....ninja photographer! Jen

Katie is so cheery and sweet! There is no color like yellow to brighten a cloudy day. Thanks for the link to your daughter's shop...she has a spice I've been looking for!

Katie has quite some strength to have pushed those books apart to make a little nook for herself on the shelf. The water between the pebbles is a perfect place for the birds to take a drink, and any wildlife which may be lurking in your undergrowth? Have a good day! x
