F is for Fabric

F is for Fabric, to make a little furry jacket,
I expected Ruby would most likely choose peach,
But after seeing all the colors contained in the packet,
She simply said, “I’ll take one of each!”

E is for Earful

E is for Earful, which Ruby got today,
Pandy was upset and had much to say,
The buddies had taken their snacks,
And piled them up in neat stacks,
After which Dill said – now you go away!

A is for Alex

A is for Alex who is in trouble today,
He though he could climb into the cupboard to play,
But when he got to the top,
He fell on his head with a big ‘ol kerflop,
And now on the floor with all the dishes he lay.

Alan Phone Holmes











Groan! Ok, bad puns aside – I am ever so happy to introduce you all to Alan The Alien. Brought to you by yours truly and Mama Holmes – that is, of course, the wonderful Janine Holmes of Mojimoji Designs! Have been having a delightful time making up her great patterns lately.

Weenie little Alan himself is 5/8th inch tall standing and his spaceship is exactly one inch from tripod to antennae. Made from sewing thread and lots of patience :)

You can see more of Janine’s work on her blog:

Tiny Treats!

After all the wood work I did earlier in the year, have been on a weenie crochet kick lately. Little easier on the hands and each project gets done a bit quicker – and frankly I find it relaxing to crochet :)

Anyway, made some tiny little things for show and tell. Here is a sweet one – a tasty cupcake made from a free pattern by Janine Holmes of Moji-moji Designs.


The next is a sweet little pup. He is made from a couple of patterns – head, ears, and tail are from a free pattern by Teri Crews and the rest of the body is based on the Bubblegum Bear by Stefanie Devlin.


Then, just finished today is a neato little monster fella – he is also made from a pattern by Janine Holmes.


All the gang here are delighted to see these new additions as we will be keeping them – lots of play possiblities and that is what life is about, right?



Alex was very pleased indeed to have new items that were not…. PINK! He is kinda right, we have too much pink stuff around here…

Tiger, Tiger

It may have been all a dream for little Alex – but no dream for us. Months in the making, this happy fellow is now finally finished and will be off to Athens Georgia soon.

He is 2.125 inches high and is carved Holly wood with painted details and elastic joints.

Am sure he is bound to get into lots of adventures as he will be with his fellow buddies, Omri and Oakley and the rest of the gang there in Athens land.

And he is bringing along with him his wee inanimate selfie!
