I finished the second Irish lass, Penny's little sister Phoebe. Unlike Penny this little one is not a shelf sitter and is able to stand unassisted. She's made of muslin and is button jointed so she can be posed.

I decided to go with the 'Pumpkin' yarn for her hair which is thicker and longer than Penny's. 

Sampson and Katie decided to join the sisters for some play time. I think the colors in this photo are much truer than they were in the photos I showed on the last post. 

I'm hoping to be able to work on one of the paper mache bunnies this afternoon and I just might be able to start painting it tomorrow if I have time after I help Bellamine and Wendy bake some cookies. They have a new cookie cutter they want to try and they think baking cookies is a way of helping out around the house. I think cleaning the bath rooms would be a better way of helping but that suggestion got vetoed so I guess it's still my job.

Well, it's about time for me to get back to work. I've got a few messes to clean up so I can make a few more. I think I'm over the doll making bug and will be concentrating my efforts on getting those bunnies finished. It'll be Easter before long and I'll still be trying to get bunnies painted.

As always, thanks for stopping by.

Dearest Maddy,
What an adorable little sister Penny had♡♡♡ Oh, She looks SO happy to be with Phoebe. Just like I'm feeling the same delight recently, Yey♬♬♬ I wonder Belamine and Wendy had a help making cookies from you.

So sorry for my late comment. I am or we are really puzzling over how we can handle many guests in our small house.
Maybe short post without picture, but you will know the chaos next week.
Lots of love and Hugs to you, xoxo Miyako*
