~Hideous Helga~


This is my **NEWEST** Dollie ~Hideous Helga~ I just listed her on ebay. She is listed for 5 days and will end on Friday Evening. Helga was a ton of work. Lots of painting (shading), lots of hand stitching and such...

She looks so neat in person. I had to take pictures inside. Not my most favorite thing to do...but I could not take them outside, as it was quite breezy. Hideous Helga has some of that fabulous wool from Ann of Crowing About Primitives. She has the most awesome wool and I just had to buy some more of this...


I have actually thought about keeping her. All Hallow's Eve in my most favorite time of the year for decorating. I wanted to make a witch that was wicked looking, but not too SPOOKY. She is trying to be really Wicked....but she has a gentle soul.

This weekend was really busy. Jordan had a friend stay over Friday and Saturday. We went to my sisters for my nephews birthday party. His now 13, my how time flies. I also went to Hobby Lobby's, Micheal's and a Quilt Shoppe....All of my favorite places! I did buy some goodies, but I did not go gun-ho....I was a good girl *smirk*

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We had nice weather today. I think Spring is finally here...knock on wood. Now we just have to hope it stays here. Have a great evening. Toodles, ~Tonya

Yep, can see the midnight oil burned on this one for sure. LOTS of it!!
Just wonderful my friend, as ALWAYS!!! I love halloween and if I was a rich woman!! I would be broke in no time. LOL
OH the quilt shop, Michaels and hobby lobby. WOW! I don't have the hobby lobby and wish I did. The quilt shop I am avoiding and it has been very hard. I am being good and only buying what I need for said projects. I have a few more requests. So they are a coming along. New pattern pieces take time.
Off to work on the deadlines stuff.
Have a wonderful week

Awww, you are all so very sweet to take the time to come and visit.

Thank you so much for the kind words as well.

Sarah, Halloween is my favorite time of year, I could make them the whole year through. :)

I hope you all have a great day.

Oh Tonya,
I bet you are doing the show at Waseca "A Touch Of Country Class"..I use to do dolls for Delores's show, you know back in the old days.....Which Hobby Lobby did you go to?... Mankato or Rochester?...I go to Mankato, because it is closer to me....Always love to see what new goodie you have created...Will have to stop at the show and pick up one of your signs, then brag that I know the Artist....

Hugs

Hi Sue,

Actually it is the one in Grand Meadow...Creative County Crafts. A very nice show, nicely displayed and very nice people. We use to do both of the shows...but have not in the past couple of years.

Wayne and Cindy called us, so we thought we would help them out and a little extra money....is ALWAYS nice. :)

You are too sweet. Thanks for stopping by. I wanted to go to Delores's show...but do not think I will make it.

I go to the Hobby Lobby in Mankato. I kill two birds with one stone that way...my sister lives in Mankato.

Have a good evening.
Hugs,
~Tonya
