Doll for a birthday girl

So I'm trying to resucite the English version of my personal blog, I have the Spanish one.
We will see if I blog in both.
Muñequita de regalo
I got this pattern long ago, from Make Baby Stuff, and last night it was the day for it.
I love the opportunity that a birthday (or Christmas) gives me to create, and I love when there is a little girl involved since I have a boy and, even when I don't think there should be gender toys, I do have to close some part of my brain when creating for my kid (name dresses, skirts, etc.).
So I tought I was going ti make a dress, but instead I remember this pattern and went for it, I got the first arm wrong because I didn't realize at first that I need to leave some sewing alloance extra from the pattern. But I have to say that I love it, I have invented many dolls, but this one has a great proportion and size, I wish I would had time to make clothes, but I knew of the birthday one day ahead, so this was the result.

I also bought in the Mercado (market) some little clay dishes and wood spoons and a chair.

And here is my sweet little one taking care of the doll before giving it.

What I comented on Soule Mama blog.
I am grateful for...
For the Día de Muertos (Day of the dead) celebration coming, because is my favorite, and all corners, schools and offices are full of color with altars, everywhere, that sure make you feel happy, better than the usual gray city. And I'm grateful capacity of forgiveness from my little 3 years old boy, from who I have so much to learn, and for have found a little school for him, and for him being happy with it, and for the lady who is helping me with my chores in exchange of the furniture that I will left behind when I move, and for the sewer who is helping me with my little baby sling shop, and for hearing these two ladies chatting about how happy they where of going out of the house for a couple of house and work, and for my boyfriend who got fired and that was exactly what he wanted, for our family and friend, and for being able of hugging a sad friend, and for my sewing students, always so motivated.
