hi again... and a hair baby

Hi, peeps! It's been about forever since I posted.
I blame summer and living in the moment (yay!).
This particular summer has been busy in all the 
right ways, i.e. spending a ton of time with family, 
friends, community and my specific little nuclear unit.
I haven't been crafting up too many messes,
but a friend recently asked if I could sew 
a hair doll for her baby boy who loves playing
with his mama's hair while he falls asleep. 
I used Butterick pattern 4027 as the framework
for this first attempt. It's soft and snuggly, but
pretty light-colored. Which means it'll be dark
grey in no time. So maybe the next one will 
be adjusted to match reality a bit more closely.
I hope you all are having a wonderful summer!!
