Caleen is enjoying adding her special touches to her new home. She just finished making a new miniature mattress and pillow for their bed. It may look rather small, but yes, both her and Kristoff fit in it, making it perfect for night time snuggling! She also just finished a blanket that is toasty warm but looks as light and breezy as the coast! Watch for that pattern coming soon! Also, there will be a post on all the supplies Caleen has on her shelves and larder!
