A little crochet and remembering Kennedy

My niece's wedding is over and it was beautiful. I've been doing a little crocheting, did this pixie hat and pant for this little thrift store doll. She cost about a quarter.
  Today is 50 years since President Kennedy was assassinated. I remember it well, it is one of those things that is burned in your memory and you remember where you were and how you found out. I can remember seeing Oswald shot on TV and of course watching the funeral of Kennedy. It was a very strange time.

The wedding is soon

My niece's wedding is soon and I am making her rehearsal bouquet from ribbons and bows from her bridal showers...

Maybe next year

I only entered four things in our fair this year, but three of those did well, 2 first places and one second place. I didn't get my little room finished so I will save it for next years fair.

My crocheted doily got a first place blue ribbon. It is "Flying Comet" pattern from a 1949 book.

Tiny crochet teddy bear

I've done some more work on the miniature bed but can't seem to start the other room items!
Meanwhile, I crocheted this tiny panda bear using 2 strands of DMC floss and a #10 steel hook. He's the smallest I've done so far!

Entries for the fair

I love this girl's room by designer Robyn Karp, so much so that I want to make a miniature diorama of this room for a fair entry. I have been working on it, but it is slow going since I've never done miniatures like this before. I have the headboard done after several failed attempts!

The bedskirt is not exactly right yet, so have more to do on it, I think the mattress is done.

This little thrift store doll Lissy thinks I'm making this room for her, so she is keenly watching my progress. I'm not going to tell her I'm really making it for an entry in the fair. This photo of the bed is just to show how it will "sort of" look, it is not finished at all! Stay tuned, I will post more photos as I progress.

Barbie find

I found a cute little folding Barbie house at Goodwill By the Pound yesterday for a dollar. I haven't been there for ages, especially since all that's going on with mom and DH and I were both sick about a month ago....so anyway.  I googled the bottom picture ..It's a Barbie Princess Charm School playset dorm room. I see I'm missing a few pieces. It has year 2010 on the bottom.
