November is when I begin to focus rather obsessively on doll and bear and ball making. Somehow once the leaves fall I start thinking about toys. These Penny People represent my latest results. Why Penny?? Well, there's a penny sewn into the bottom under the red felt base to provide flatness and weight so that they stand up better. And these dolls are made almost entirely from leftover scraps from making the bigger dolls. Plus they're little -- about 4 inches tall. So they are penny pinching, penny sized, and have an actual penny in the feet. They are for sale on my Etsy site if you would like to get one or two of your own.
If you would like to stay with us this is the room we rent via Airbnb. I would love to see you and give you a tour of the studio, some quality time at the knitting table, some scones and warm drinks.
