Do you like Blythe Dolls??

As you might know by now, I love to sew, crochet and knit from those three activities I create. I like to create different things, that’s why I have such a variety of items in my shop. Approximately a month ago I got my first Blythe doll, Luna. She is beautiful, and of course I have to create for her too. Between last Sunday and yesterday I finished some cute items for her and for others Blythe dolls! I like to make Blythe items.

I was thinking that I might have to open another shop, exclusively for doll’s items. Otherwise my shop is going to be confusing I think, but I’m not sure yet.
This is a little chair that I have in my shop, it's ideal for Latty doll's too. I used them more for my amigurumis. I think it's too adorable.

All right! I think I wrote more than enough for now!
I’ll be back later!


This is the sweet Sophie

All this week I have been working a lot, creating different things. At this moment I’m working in two amigurumis, this time I’m trying new kinds of yarn. The idea is to create a really fuzzy one, but it’s so hard to crochet with fuzzy yarn. Surprisingly, this project is coming along really well; hopefully I will be finishing it by the end of this week. Oh gosh I love making Amigurumis!!!! Talking about them, so far I have sold a total of three already! The first one was Sophie the sweet sheep, the second one was Teresa the tiny bear, and third one was Romina.

I think her face is really sweet. When I'm inspired everything comes out so easy. I loved Teresa, she is in a nice home now.
When I made Tere I was inspired by love and sweet simple things,that's why she is such a happy toy full of positive energy.

Well I have to admit I love to create amigurumis I think that they are super cute and you have to think a lot make them different and unique.
If you make amigurumis plase write to me letting me know where I can see your work!! I love to see different amigurumis.

What a nice week so far!!

Sorry that I haven’t been writing everyday, it’s very hard to get use to this. I still try to figure this entire blog thing out. I’m use to flickr, what a wonderful place to make new friends!!So many talented people, I love looking at their pictures, it really help you to learn how to make your page or blog to look better. Talking about flickr:
Check this out!
Well two days ago I got a beautiful package on my mail, from my very, very good flickr friend Angie. She made a nice and big knitting case with lots of stitch marker!! When I saw it I was speechless! It looks just beautiful!!! Thank you so, so much Angie, I'm so lucky to have as my friend!!!
The funny thing is that I’ve always wanted one, and now I have it and it’s perfect!

The little knitting basket for Romina's set!

It's really tiny and full of yarn!!

I loved this past weekend!

This past weekend was great. It was so different to other weekends, because my husband started a new part time job, so he is not at home anymore on the weekends, which is really strange to me, I miss him
When I woke up last Saturday I felt that I needed to create, and that's what I did. I finished Lizzie's Black Sheep ( She is a client that have ordered a black sheep). It took me a lot of time, because I like to make sure that everything looks perfect. When I finished this amigurumi I looked at it and I thought, it is going to be a girl and her name is going to be Romina.
I think she looks really cute, I showed it to Lizzie and she loved her!!
On your left you can see a picture of her, what do you think, isn't she cute?

One if my flickr contacts wrote a note that says: "tiny needles are becoming a trade mark for you lol". The funny part is that my name in my flickr account is tinyneedles, and I'm always making tiny needles for my toys. I thought about to stop making them, but I can't. If I don't make a knitting basket full of yarn it feels like my toy's set is missing something.

Sharing my Father's Art Work.

Hello there, I just wanted to show you something more before I go.

This is a Signed Color Pencil Drawing. This drawing was made using only color pencils and pens.

The artist is my father, he is living in Buenos Aires, Argentina and I'm promoting his work, because I think he is really talented. He is an insulin dependant, and in Argentina they won't give him a job, lots of discrimination issues, so I'm helping him out. I feel good doing this because he has a purpose every morning now, he wants to paint, and it keeps him motivated, which it's great.
You are going to see more of his drawings and probably some paintings on my blog and store soon. So we will see what happens.
If you are interested in this drawing it's for sale at my shop, if you have any questions please email me, I will be more than happy to help you.

My father made this drawing inspired by a children book story, that he used to read to me when I was a child. This little creature on the drawing lives in the garden, and sometimes comes to visit the kitchen to explore new worlds. He is super tiny and when he comes to the kitchen he will ask for a spoon as a bed, that's his favorite.
