Winter Birds

Winter Birds . . . 

Welcome 2014, continued . . . 

A brand new year with the potential of fulfilling many hopes and dreams come true. 

Finally have the time to update my blog after the new year, and what an inspiring new year it is turning out to be, yet I find myself tripping up with how fast January is slipping by, especially since I have sooooo many knits I want to complete before the next season is upon us.
 So I have decided to continue with my initial theme for Winter 2014 through February, called 'Winter Birds'.
I love the winter season, as long as it's not too much of anything, my heart goes out to all those inflicted with the major ice storms, I love the dreamy snow covered scenes from the safety of a warm, lit home, and am very thankful for just that, although we do not have any snow, I have my pretend snow and American Girl snow-scene backdrop to help.

Please feel free to follow my mood board I created on Pinterest for inspirational colors that Mother nature does so well, that I can only hope to aspire to.

To kick start this theme, here is my new model, Abbie, an 18inch Madam Alexander girl from the 2007 Favorite Friends series.
   She was a gift I gifted to myself for Christmas, after a long soak, her tangled locks were free once again, enhancing her beauty even more, after holding up various color options, I saw that the gold tones were so complimentary to her and she glowed.
Here's a very excited Abbie to show and tell, enjoy and thank you for reading ~ Deb, Debonair Designs

New Year beckons 'Denali' ~ A winter special collection eBook


Welcome 2014!

A brand new year with the potential of fulfilling many hopes and dreams come true. 


Normally I do not entertain the idea of new year resolutions, but this one arrived in my inbox from my dear hubby, from the creator of 'The Secret
A New Year's Resolution That Will Change Your Life

"Do whatever you can to feel good, because when you feel good, life will be good. The better you feel, the better life will get . . . ."
 And there's much more to read . . .  

So with these inspiring words, I knew that focusing on my knitting for dolls passion is the right path for me. To kick start off this new year, is a new pattern collection, one I hope you and yours will both enjoy and have fun with ~ Deb, Debonair Designs

presenting, 'Denali' ~ A winter special collection eBook


This winter inspired set took form from the desire to have an outer garment that compliments my sweater dress pattern, Ayanna. This collection once again makes use of the easy to achieve faux fair isle pattern with  variations offered,  along with a matching hat featuring a gathered top and coordinating fingerless-mitts for a finishing touch. Included in this winter special is a matching horse saddle blanket complete with socks; along with a pet kerchief for your doll’s favorite pet dog; a fun addition I hope you and yours will enjoy.                                ~ Debonair Designs
