Farmer Girl

I finally have one resident for the one of the farms that will be leaving here at Christmas time. I am hoping she will have a male companion and that the other farm will also be fully stocked will animals and people prior to Christmas. This was my first attempt with a crochet ami doll and it had its moments. I have been reading more tutorials about hair and heads as evidenced by the collection of tutorials posted yesterday. However, those all came after the creation of this doll when I realized more work was needed. However, as a first effort I am pleased. There were parts that went better than I thought they would.

I have been collecting out of print patterns books and magazines to increase my pattern collection. This pattern is from Annie's Crochet Newsletter Jul-Aug 1992. Michelle Wilcox was the designer. It is interesting as I have started to collect patterns how many names you run across in different publications. This pattern was called "Wash Day" and designed as a display, not for children's play. However, the idea of a farmer that came with her own afghan seemed too good to let go. There is a goose with this pattern that will likely be added to the farm yard as I finish off all the other requirements.
