Monday, May 24th

There is oh so much going on at my house this week...I am going to try to squeeze some doll making in to keep my sanity!  The last day of school is this week, there is school parties, field day, a graduation party for a dear friend's lovely daughter.  I got 2 special packages in the mail from MamaJudes with some gorgeous plant dyed boucles, and one from NorthYorkshireYarns with some beautiful thick-thin texture yarn in bright, happy colors.  Blondes, redheads, fairies, oh my! 

I finally finished the small 10 inch dolls for my girls...they have waited so patiently.  The dark blond with lilac purple is Cricket, the light blond with pink is Sugar.  I put the dolls on the girls' beds while they slept, it was the first thing they saw this morning when they woke up.   There is nothing like giggles and smiles first thing in the morning :o)  The good news is my youngest is ready for me to share the copper curly girl with all of you, I will post her later in the week with another sweetie...I am thinking another Butterfly Fairy Princess with one of the yarns in the picture above.  I will update this post and let you know on Facebook when the upload will occur.

  1. What a lovely thing for your daughters to wake up too. I am sure it means more to them than anything store bought!
    I look forward to seeing the copper haired girl in the shop and the other little one! Eeek.....I need a Butterfly Fairy Princess!
    I just love your dolls and I could buy everyone!
    Such talent!

    Have a great week and thank you for the posts!
