I’d like to extend a warm thanks to the editors of Canadian Family magazine for including Ana Paula Rimoli’s Lucia doll in their Winter 2008 issue.

As many of you know, Ana Paula is the prolific creator of some of Quiet Hours’ best-loved pieces: Happy Eggs, Cozy Food, Florabelle Bear, Marco the Pirate, and Lucia of the long flowing locks and jaunty fashion sense.

Ana recently returned from a month in her native Uruguay and is back at work crocheting up all sorts of amigurumi characters, including some new Lucia dolls for the shop. Just in are some classic Lucias in red plus a special one-of-a-kind edition in green and pink. She’s perfect for Valentine’s Day.

For those of you who might like a more in-depth look at Ana’s process and philosophy, you can look forward with us to the pending release of her first book  Amigurumi World: Seriously Cute Crochet at the end of the month. It will be a visual feast of her original softie creations plus patterns for all you crafty types who might like to attempt a project of your own. The book is currently available for pre-order and is expected in stores on February 28th. Congratulations, Ana!
