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
