After the camping trip I’ve been working on a few projects steadily. I have finished embroidering a tablecloth. The design is bunches of violets. It is worked in cross-stitch. Violets are my favorite flowers. I just have to figure out where in my house I can put the tablecloth.


This past I also got a new washi doll book. I wanted to make every single project in the book. The past few days I’ve been making one or two washi dolls a day. I have made a couple different types. The doll in the front is a 3-D washi doll. She is a maiko with a polymer clay head. I had problems with the head going onto the body but I think it turned out ok. I made a warabe doll. She is the one in the pink kimono with the white obi. I have made this pattern before and really like it. I like her a lot and I am thinking about mounting her and hanging her in my sewing room. The tall, thin dolls are from the new book I got. I believe they are meant to be bookmarks. They are very simple to make. I think my friends will be getting bookmarks for Christmas. I plan to use the green one with long sleeves for myself.

Camping Trip

The past week Mark and I spent our time camping. We went out to Dworshak State Park, which is a park we went to last year and fell in love with. We had a great time camping, even if we both got bad sunburns. The first picture is of a little chipmunk that kept us company. He was so cute I had to take a picture.

The next picture is of some clouds. One night the sky was filled with beautiful cloud formations. You could see everything from our camp.

The last picture is a shot of the reservoir from a trail that we took around the back of the camp.
