Crochet Doll for Christmas

Hullo weihnachten.Image by bydo via Flickr

I hope you are all surviving the holiday madness, as you prepare for Christmas this year.  The holidays, while they are a joyous time, can wreak havoc on your mind and body if you aren't careful to make time to take care of YOU.  Getting enough 'down' time for rest and relaxation should be high on your list of priorities, and we've all heard the reports that crocheting  is a good stress reliever.  So make sure your schedule includes some relaxing crochet time!

I just finished my Christmas doll, "Pricilla".  She was a bit different from the other dolls I've made, but in a good way.  First, I gave her braided hair.  I've never done that before, but it was super easy and I thought it looked wonderful when it was done.  

  I really wanted to pay attention to the details, so I sewed tiny buttons on her shoe straps, and a small but fancy button at her collar.  I also loved the look of her hat with the red and white flower on it.  I decided not to give her a mouth because she looked so sweet with just the eyes that I didn't want to touch a thing on her face.  

It feels good to have another project done, and start planning the next one!  I'm deciding between a couple of amigurumi patterns, so I'm not sure what my next project will be.  I'm enjoying designing my own patterns, but sometimes it's nice to take a breather and crochet from a pattern so I don't have to think so much.  I did find several more adorable (and free) Christmas crochet pattern links which I will get organized and post next time. 

Thanks for visiting as always, and  I hope you all have a wonderful and relaxing weekend!
