New Partner and FOs!!!

My New Partner!!!

Look what Santa bought own dressform partner!!!! ( was my DH! I gave him plenty of hints that I would like to have one) Thanks DH!! I'm thinking of giving her a name - Harleygirl? Hayden? Hailey? I will let my DH vote. I bet he would vote her "Harleygirl".

I have several FOs...mostly were done last November. I didn't have time to blog about them. Let me present........

Here is my big Raggedy Ann doll modeling the completed hat. My boss' secretary is expecting a baby boy in January. I thought of making her a baby hat. It took me whole day to finish when we went down to Florida for Thanksgiving weekend. The hat will fit a baby to 18 months.
