Pretty Ballerina for a Pretty Little Girl

Goodness! Two weeks before Christmas and I am not nearly as ready as I should be.  Still have shopping, gift wrapping, a gift to sew and making my list and checking twice, three times or however many times I need too!  But with all the preparing and work - it still is my favorite time of the year!

I just finished this little ballerina for a very special friend I've made through blogging.  She ordered a custom doll for her granddaughter.  I have to admit when she first asked if I could do a doll with a tutu - I wasn't sure I could do it.  She was so nice and told me just to make the dress and she would make the tutu.    Well I gave it a try and she loves it!  Yay, hope her little one does too.  She sent me a picture of her granddaughter and she is so beautiful!  Oh, by the way - I told my husband I don't think I'll make another ballerina, until my granddaughter came over last and night and saw this doll and asked If I can make her one too!  Oh, boy.  Lol

I'm making homemade chocolate covered peanut candy for the office this weekend.  Yummy and sooo easy to make.  I'll post the receipe this weekend for anyone who might be interested.  Gotta get back to finishing that Christmas gift - until later - take care.
