Old Doll, New Class

I made this doll from an online class a couple of years ago with Jacque Uetz and she is one of my all time favorites. I had always been very conservative with embellishments but through Jacque's encouragement I had great fun piling it on this one and I love her! Jacque is offering the class (called "Sarana") again at Jean Bernard's website here:

If you'd like a fun project for the fall I strongly recommend this class. She's easy to make and too much fun!

Photo of the Week--on TIME!

Something a little different this week! This is my first daughter running an agility course with her "star" dog Rudy. He's a Bedlington terrier and considers these events the best fun he's ever had. He runs through them so fast she has a hard time keeping up with him.

Oops! Photo of the Week

Sorry this isn't a great photo, but I took it in the early morning before the light was good enough in the backyard. This tiny little hummingbird is on sentry duty, guarding the feeder I keep outside my window. There are four hummers who vie for places at the feeder all day long. They almost never feed together and someone is always on guard to chase away any of his relatives who dare try to get a sip. They are constantly dive-bombing each other all day. I worried about them, but then I realized that this may be good training for them to be on constant alert to predators. They never harm each other, thank goodness, but they're so tiny, they'd be easy prey for other birds if they weren't so alert and quick.
