Time for a $1 Apple Dumpling Doll!

Time is just flying by... hard to believe we have been in our new house for 2 months already.  Renovations are well underway and I hope to have pics of my new kitchen to share soon.  Things have been a bit slow on the doll making front as I have been super busy unpacking, fixing, homeschooling my oldest, and my with my job, but I have been trying to make as much time for the dolls as possible as I love it so much!  I have a few dolls in various stages of completion, 2 very special ones that are just waiting on some cool duds from the Melamoose. 

Now, without further ado, I would like to share Cheri Applestocking!  She is quite an adventurous gal, loves climbing in the trees, playing on the rope swing, investigating in the woods...

Cheri Applestocking is an 8 inch Apple Dumpling doll.  Her cherry red mohair locks were hand dyed by me and will look best if they stay in braids.  She can sit assisted and her arms are just floppy enough for fun play.  She is of course wearing The Melamoose Co. halter jumper that was especially designed for her.  She will be offered comment style on my Facebook page for $1 (plus shipping and handling).  If you are interested in purchasing her, please leave a comment below her photo on my FB page before 9 pm EST on Sunday 10/30.  At that time, all the names will go into a hat and one will be chosen to buy her.  If you are not on Facebook, please feel free to leave a comment here and I will enter a comment for you on the fan page.  To get to the fan page, please click on the link in the sidebar. 

I leave you now with a pic of the gorgeous fall color that is starting to pop up in my part of Georgia.

I'm Back!!

The last few months have been oh so very busy... we moved into a real "fixer-upper" (LOTS of fixing needed!!), my youngest started a new school, my oldest is now home schooling.   I now have almost all of my yarns and supplies unpacked and put away and was so excited to be able to thread the needles on my machines and get busy....I am so very happy to be back to creating dolls. 

Here are the two 12 inch gals I just finished:

They need names and I gotta pick out the perfect outfits for them from my stash of The Melamoose Co. dresses but that will be done soon. 

As of right now I am planning on uploading them both to my Etsy shop on  Thursday evening about 9:30 pm EST.  I will update this post with their final pics and leave a note on Facebook as well as soon as I am all done..

Thanks for stopping by!

xoxo Debra ΡΌ
