in my handbasket

Sandman from The Children's Year :: my third handmade doll 
A neighborhood girl and I made these dolls for two little ones that lost their mother recently. 

what do you do with yarn from a frogged-thrifted sweater?
you make several 8st i-cords that will be felted in order to make a decorative rug, of course! 
This is my never ending, just need to knit something project. 

eight years of marriage mandala
I am new to embroidery but I designed and have been working on this gift for the last few days. 
It speaks of our new marriage, sadness in death, new life, growing as people and putting down roots.
