bouquet pins from Marie

The theme for this pindoll swap was floral bouquet. This is what Marie made and painted for me! Aren't they all wonderful!!!

vintage doll

This is a doll I made for a vintage challenge. She is from a pattern by Kezi Matthews. All the laces on her dress and undies are old laces that I have. She also has a bustle and pantaloons I didn't get a picture of. I am still making her shoes.

Kitchen Witch

Here is a doll I made for a commission. She is Ute Vasina's 'Kitchen Witch'. She hangs in a kitchen to ward off evil.

swap pins

The pigs were for the 'Big Bad Wolf and Three Little Pigs' theme. I gave Heera the brick laying pig. Heera gave me the bikini pig. Apparently she was the reason there was so much huffing and puffing as the wolf was actually looking for her! LOL The alien I made for Joanne for the alien pin swap.

My doll for the Hoffman Challenge

It took me a while to figure out what I wanted to do with the challenge fabric. The design was very large. In the end I ended up using it as her skirt to show off the design to advantage. There are cyrstals on the skirt, the bird, the hat and bodice. I really think I have done a good job this year. I even made the fabric tree stump for her to sit on.

A present and a swap

I made a little hobbit doll on Sunday from a pattern by Lotus Vele. It was a present for my friend who had her birthday on Monday. Fastest I ever made a doll! Didn't embellish and just made wool felt clothes! I think he turned out cute. I also made a pincushion for a Fairy tale pincushion swap. She is the Fairy Godmother!
