...I never thought I would take up another art. I have been having a lot of fun making little things so far. 
I remembered these hair ribbons back in the day and thought I would make Toots some.

Here is what I see each day this fall as I go to work....

One ofToots' favorite friends is... Anastasia

Clocks in the making...

...a on going project
I started these Doll Clocks 2 weeks ago. Step-by-step they should be done for the holidays.
I will be adding to this posting as I progress to the finishing of 5 to 6 of them!
I made the pattern, got supplies. 
Cutting out the pieces of wood was a joy...I got to use my cousin Debs shop...I will submit that at another time, it is a girls dream wood shop come true!
Then it was preping and painting time and Little Toots got in on that...

Toots' interest is so much fun to see and listen too...

So...we are this far at the end of the 3rd week.

I have 2 jobs that consist of Driving bus in the morning...working at the frame shop and then a noon bus route...what a change in life style to say the least!!
I have replaced the fake glass with real glass, for it looks so much better...I have also been doing more detailing which results into making just the clock and not adding arms, legs and faces.
Here is one that is just about done...5 total to make!
Top left clock, without its frame. It seems to have gotten out the door for a birthday party gift before I got a picture of it finished...HAPPY BIRTHDAY Deb *
This one I finished and will need to make another for these have turned out to be "too fun" to make...!
Onward... more and counting!
