Well it is still raining in Kentucky.
Still snowing in some states
but today is
Vintage Thingie Thursday
and that makes for a fun day.
Many years ago I crocheted continuously.
Mostly with cotton.
I had doilies all over the place.
This was a table cover and they sort of went out of style.
Diameter about 24 inches across.
One day I was looking for something to do, I bought a generic barbie doll and converted this table cover into
Luckily I did not have to make a single cut.
I took the head off and inserted the neck into the hole at the center of the doily, the arms through the holes,
added the wide ribbon wings, tied the waist with a gold ribbon and placed a piece of gold around her head for a halo. I found the little gold hearts somewhere.
She has been the center of my Nativity scene for many years.
Now doilies are back in for me and my crocheted doily will grace my Easter table this year.
It will then go back on the doll when Christmas rolls around again.
The grands get a big kick out of Angela and all vie for her when I am ready to part with her.
Guess I will have to draw names.
This is this week's art project.
A beautiful pattern that I made a couple of mess ups on.
But I did my best to correct them.
I love the colors on this bunny on wheels. LOL
Primitive art for sure.

I will have to steer you to
my art teacher's paint page to see it in all it's beauty.
