Cute, with a pinch of rage at the end.

I just want you to know, this is being counted as the first sweater of the season.

p.s This is also an average sized sink with a tiny sweater, not a giant sink with an average sized sweater (if you were wondering).

Cardigan Pattern: Trio of Top Down Sweaters by Julie Williams of Little Cotton Rabbits.

(Links lead to ravelry, patterns also available on the Little Cotton Rabbits website.)

Now if I were only 9″ tall Spring/Summer edition.

Dress Pattern: Seasonal Dresses, with the Peter Pan Collar add on, both from Little Cotton Rabbits.

Bunny Pattern: Bunny with a striped sweater also by Little Cotton Rabbits.

Fall/winter dream outfit from the doll closet.

Just a palm sized sweater with a petite corsage on top.

I can get 3 little cardigans from a single 25g ball of fingering weight wool.

There’s a burrow at the base of the hops arbor, it’s where we leave the rubbery radishes.

It’s been extra warm and we have been under an air quality warning for the past few days due to the Canadian wildfires, so keeping indoors with the ac on ..not that I would have been out romping around anyways, we all know how much I love mellow days at home, tucked away in my studio or on my lazy end of the couch. The pandemic is still fucking terrible too, no matter how much we are pushed to think and behave like it isn’t. I could go on and on about the anger, embarrassment, sadness, and frustration I feel for all the misinformation and ignorance whirling around, I just wish people could see it in my still masked vaccinated face. Ugh. Trying to find little bits of happiness, clarity, peace (whatever you want to call that inner calm/relaxed feeling) wherever I can lately, and sometimes that looks like a tiny sweater for a tiny bunny and sometimes it looks like nothing special, just being.

Quiet Days

Quiet days, not doing too much of anything. I had ordered some soap making supplies a while back and they finally arrived, mostly boring stuff, but, I randomly threw a fragrance oil called Galactic Grape in my basket ..oh goodness.. today I’m diffusing it and the house smells like scratch and sniff grape soda, and I have to say it’s one of the best things I’ve done.

Here’s one of my old 2012 soaping blog posts if you’re interested in hearing more about soap :)

PSA: I don’t know a lot about aromatherapy and usually I’m a constant rule breaker, but not so much with plants/herbs, oils and manufactured scents, some things can be irritating to your body, toxic to inhale or ingest, know your ingredients, oils and fragrances usage percent and that they are skin, pet and home safe before using.

Quick makes, looking for solutions to optimize my fabric yardage, always striving for zero waste, but no matter how hard I try, I still end up with little bits leftover. I hadn’t made scrunchies for Lex since she was a kid, so that’s what I did with some of those little bits in the tiny summer studio the other day.

Trying not to read too much into this.

I also made some resin charm dangle thingies, that one says “my heart is flammable when I see your beautiful eyes” I clipped the quote out of a cute notebook I’ve been using for grocery lists. Every page is a different color and has sweet, funny and creepy quotes, that just make me smile. The runner up quote from my cute notebook is below ..yikes!
