Skiing in the Alps

No.  It isn’t me skiing on the Austrian Alps.  It’s our Heidi.  She returned back to Brussels after a week in the Austrian Alps.  This is a photo of she and Raphael at the top of one of the mountains.  Isn’t it breathtaking?!

Heidi hadn’t been skiing much before.  She said she really enjoyed it after taking some lessons.  She’s in great shape because she is a long distance runner, plus takes ballet classes several times a week.  And, keeps up with the Jr. Highers in her classes at the International School of Brussels.

Not much time to catch up, but I will when I get on the cruise ship.  It’s such a tough life that I lead.  Ha!

The only thing new here in San Diego and at our house is my newest pattern "Little Star Pincushion and Sewing Folder".  I’ve been on a sewing supplies holder kick lately.

I do like having a tri-fold soft container to hold larger items like full size scissors, rulers, notebook, pencils, pens, knitting needles, crochet hooks, etc.

In May I’ll be teaching my Penny Pink Pocket, which is a sewing caddy doll.  I liked her so much I created two others in different colors.  Penny Pink Pocket will stay with someone after the Think Pink Gala in Aurora, Ohio.  Thus, I needed to make a couple more so I’d have something to hold all my other sewing needs.

Until next time, keep sewing!

    Patti, I LOVE these new patterns. Oooh they are yummy. I am so jealous of the ladies who get to make these. Maybe when you come to the UK you could teach this, maybe, maybe…Did that sound like begging because I was trying to be a little more dignified than that. Tee hee.

  8. Hi Patti, I just had to stop in and to welcome you to visit the creation LADY LOVE SQUARED, a collaborative art doll created using portions of your art doll pattern found in your first book. Also, she wears proudly 180 artists squares. She eventually will be auctioned off to benefit Susan G. Komen for the cure charity. We’re proud to call her friend, definitely a symbol of hope to those battling breast cancer or any cancer for that matter. You’ve profoundly touched my heart with your talents and teachings. I invite you to peek at our beloved doll, she certainly would like to meet you. Love & blessings, Monica 🙂

    Did I hear the name San Diego? Oh it’s always so good to hear the name of what you consider home base (El Cajon to be precise). Maybe someday I’ll be able to live there again.
    Your dolls are wonderful. I came here via Monica Magness’ blog. I am glad as your dolls are just fabulous.
