This little Irish doll was crocheted and given to a young lady who is dealing with cancer treatment and was a true labour of love. It was my first Annie's Attic Bed Doll. More pictures below.
After many years of not crocheting I chose to tackle this doily designed on line as a mystery and a challenge and it opened a new world of crochet for me. This one is in the home of my mother-in-law in Cape Breton.
This was the second doily that was started as a mystery and
completed and taken to my daughter's home in New Brunswick.
These are more photos of the doll as well as a small pineapple sachet, that I did keep for myself.

As you can tell this is a new adventure for me both in sketching and in creating with beads and fabrics.\\This will be the September challenge and will work on this as I go along and have to yet select the silk fabric, back it, and pick out some unusual beads and techniques to embellish with.

These are little angels that I make and place on my windowsill until I see someone who needs one for a special reason.
This one went home along with a hand crocheted afghan to a great lady who is fighting another battle with cancer, her disease is out of remission and I know this little angel will watch over her and take care of her while she is going through new rounds of chemo.
This little angel went to a special little sister on her birthday. She treasures anything that I make for her and she will treasure this as well I am sure.
I can hardly wait to start making more of them.
