i have realized in the last few weeks that i really enjoy being creative, whether it is taking photos or sewing, doing something with my hands makes me feel inspired and alive. i've been working on lillie's quilt, but was inspired by several websites like this to try my hand at making little plush toys/dolls. here is my first, very rough and almost silly attempt. the important thing is that lillie seems to like it. i think that i may invest in a pattern and continue trying.
