What have I been up to lately?

Well, not much.  I’m kind of going through this weird nervous spell.  Last Saturday my city was hit hard by a tornado and my county, city, and state was just left in a state of turmoil.  So many people lost loved ones. One woman put her children in a closet to keep them safe and the tornado hit her house and killed her three boys and then her daughter died yesterday.  Stories are still coming in about how people lost so much and it skipped my area of town altogether.  All my friends were safe as well, and I just feel so bad for everyone hit.  I wish no one was hit by the tornado.  I wish that all those who lost their lives were still here with us.  I’ve got to get off that topic now.  It’s just so sad and then to think you were just a street away from it being you, well yeah it shocks you.  So let’s change topic, shall we?  Sweetness.  Smile
So my sister bought some doll heads for her Volks and Obitsu dolls and as a trade I volunteered to root some of her heads.  On is done as of today.  Going to start on the next one in the next couple of days.  I want to work on a Liv doll wig I started a couple of weeks ago.    But here are some pictures of the doll head I completed.

Sorry for the crap pictures.  My camera seems to be slowly dying a slow painful death.  But until I can get a new one I’ll have to make do.  So the colors here are like a neon orange and blue color mix.  Did you know orange and blue are complimentary colors?  My sister has originally started the rooting of this doll, but then the Volks body she was working with broke.  Well I have figured out how to fix it, so hopefully there will be a finished picture of this gal soon.
But that’s all I’ve been working on as of late.  I have been wanting to work on amigurumi patterns, but I can’t figure out how to make what I want to make.  I have an idea, but then I will have a problem when it comes to the eyes.  I might have to crochet them too since I don’t have safe eyes and I want to make my stuff kid safe from toddler on up.  But since I won’t be selling the actual items but the patterns then I guess I could just get some eyes for the pattern as a suggestion.  I’ll have to look into that.  I want to get some Suncatcher Eyes so badly.  I think a purchase from them is in my near future.  And I’m also thinking about making some sewn stuffed animal patterns as well.  I have some ideas in mind for special animals and items.  Stay tuned for that.  Smile
More posts to come about how I’ve been doing and what I’ve been doing.  I’ve had a non-busy/busy week.  I’ll explain in the next post.  Bye for now.  Smile

Loves ya,
