Flower baby grubs

Oh dear, I really should be cleaning, the house is a mess, but I just had to come in here for another sticky beak. I keep seeing Ravelry being mentioned so I though I would join. This is how bad my memory is at the moment, apparently I joined a few years ago and forgot. So I've reset my password and I'm back on ravelry.
I made these little dolls this month, some with legs and some without and gave them flower hats. Its one way of using up my stash. Just a basic ami pattern but they are so cute and easy to do.
I never write patterns down I just make up as I go along, but I am disciplining myself to do so in the future.  I made a gorgeous flower one night and try as I might I just can't do another one like it.  So I bought myself a set of little notebooks to keep by my chair.  Whether I actually do write things down as I go is another matter and also whether the books stay next to my chair and don't disappear into the grandgirls toyroom. I found a piccy of one of the flower garlands, this is just a simple one, probably about a metre and a half in length.  Oh no, just look at the time, nearly ten o'clock and i'm still in my jami's.  Don't tell anyone.

I put the finishing touches to my friends birthday present last night, its a lot prettier in the flesh, its better than the one I made for myself (the green one).  I used two of the large flower motifs and a yo-yo and button to finish it off on top. I also finished off the elephant, gave her a pretty swirly skirt and of course, added a little flower. Its too wet to do the markets this morning (Sat. 22 Oct), so it will be a couple of weeks before there is another one, hopefully the weather will have inproved. Plenty of time for me to make more flower garlands and elephants and flower grubs babies.
