Baby Doll

Hello, Dear Ones. Well I thought I would crochet a little doll for Carter's American Girl Doll. Gotta have a little toy to play with. So off to Pinterest I went looking for a pattern and I found one!

 Introducing tiny little Dolly! She is crocheted with thread and I hate to admit it but it took me almost all day to crochet. But she did turn out pretty cute.
 I did use a baby yarn to make her hair! I wanted her to have pigtails so I made curly ques!
 I just made up my own hair and made yarn buttons and sewed them down to her little bitty head.
 Here you can see how tiny little Dolly really is. Notice her cute little pink dress too!

I packed Dolly off with Carter for her doll, Blossom! Now Blossom has her own little doll.
But to keep busy I went ahead and used up some of my yarn to make a little cover. As you can see my doll, Marion, put it to good use before it went to Carter. I have one more thing to show you as I'm almost crocheted out! :) Can't believe I'm saying that. 

Thank you all for your sweet comments on  my previous post. You don't know how much I love you all and your encouraging words and prayers are getting me through this time.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

New Kid In Town

There's talk on the street, it sounds so familiar

Great expectations, everybody's watching you
People you meet they all seem to know you
Even your old friends treat you like you're something new

Johnny come lately, the new kid in town
Everybody loves you, so don't let them down

You look in her eyes, the music begins to play
Hopeless romantics, here we go again
But after a while you're looking the other way
It's those restless hearts that never mend

Johnny come lately, the new kid in town
Will she still love you, when you're not around?

There's so many things you should have told her
But night after night you're willing to hold her
Just hold her tears on your shoulder

There's talk on the street, it's there to remind you
That it doesn't really matter which side you're on
You're walking away and they're talking behind you
They will never forget you till somebody new comes along

Where you've been lately? There's a new kid in town
Everybody loves him, don't they?
Now he's holding her and you're still around, oh my my
There's a new kid in town
Just another new kid in town

Oh oh, everybody's talking 'bout the new kid in town
Oh oh, everybody's walking like the new kid in town

There's a new kid in town, I don't want to hear it
There's a new kid in town, I don't want to hear it
There's a new kid in town
There's a new kid in town

There's a new kid in town, everybody's talking
There's a new kid in town, people started walking
There's a new kid in town
There's a new kid in town
There's a new kid in town

  1. Love when I see someone who actually completes a crochet project and puts it to use. Your little blanket will be cherished for generations, I'm sure.

  2. Cute! Best Grandma ever award!

  3. Appropriate song for the little new kid in town:) so so very adorable!

  4. Shelia, I love your dolly. You are way faster crocheting than I have ever been. LOL. That would be a year's project. Hope you are feeling good and your grandbaby too. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  5. Just adorable, Shelia. About the last post, I had 3 knee surgeries a long time ago, nothing like your major injury, but just wanted to let you know in time (seems like it takes forever) you'll get your knee bend back and strength too. I was on crutches for 6 months back then and you would never know it now. Be patient and hang in there!

  6. Adorable! I'm sure Carter is thrilled with the miniature doll for her AG doll. All the clothes you crocheted for her AG doll are quite stylish, too!

  7. Aw that is so darling you make we want to be a little girl again :) Simply adorable!

  8. You make the sweetest things for little Carter! What a sweet grandmother you are! ♥

  9. How cute that the doll has a doll and a blanket too! xx

  10. What a sweet little dolly! I never learned to crochet, but I did knit for a while until my boys got too big and I was spending all my time running around after them! Sheila, thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such a nice comment. I love to see the songs you publish at the end of your posts, they're always so fitting. This one brought a tear to my eye, thinking about Glenn Frye. I pray that you continue to mend, and that Carter will continue to get healthier.

  11. Oh this little doll is just precious! I read your previous post and that Proverbs Woman cross stitch is amazing ! We are fasting and praying for Diana's husband tomorrow / I'm adding you to my list again; how hard it must be to want to be doing this and that and have this setback.

  12. Shelia,
    You are so very talented, dear friend!!!
    Dolly is a d o r a b l e!!!
    I'm sure Little Carter will be thrilled!!!

  13. What a sweet little doll. Adorable.
