My birthday was yesterday (21st). I had a nice one. My hubby got me a new shower head that has a removable sprayer. I wanted that! My MIL gave me money! I can go buy fabric!! My youngest daughter got me a new radio/cd player. The one in my sewing room went kaput! LOL My oldest daughter and gradkids got me a mini rose plant which I will let hubby take care of so I don't kill it! Also some Beverly bucks to use at my local craft/fabric store. Got some cute handmade card from the grandkids. They all came top my house to see me too. I also belong to a birthday swap where we send fabric to birthday girls. Here is a pic of my fabric sent from all over the world! It is bright and fun! I also got chinese food for dinner so I had a great birthday!

Well, it has been a while since my last post. I have been working on a few things.
The red hat is a pin cushion. We made those this month on the pindoll list. The doll is a Summer Goddess that I angeled for someone who didn't get that swap. She is from a pattern in Lil Hertz book. The mermaid is from Arley Berryhill's pattern. It is for my mini group three color challenge. I got the colors emerald, burgandy and fusia. They were a starting point and I used a light colored green batik with fusia and burgandy (light) in it. I like how she turned out. LOved the hair with all the colors in it!

Well I have been busy sewing dolls but they are for challenges so can't show pics yet! I did get a swap in my pindoll group and I sent one off for my artist paper doll and trading card group. Here are those pics.
I got the cute merbaby from Mary. Isn't the tail fabric fab!
I made the 'faery tale' paperdoll for Roslind.
