She started as a twinkle in my eye...
Welcome to the world dolly!
She is a "Moonlit Raggedy" for sure as I stayed up 'till midnight three nights in a row to finish her. I was so anxious to see her finished...
Here is a close-up of her "crooked" smile! Have you ever met anyone with a crooked smile? I like those kind of folks, they always seem to be on the verge of laughter or telling a great story.
I can't believe all the time that goes into making one doll. Although she's raggedy, she's not really primitive, so I hemmed all the edges and tried to hide stitches...definitely takes more time. And the older I get, the more impatient I am! I thought it was supposed to be the other way around?
I'm already excited about making a boy raggedy with a monkey jumpsuit...and a little princess with really PINK hair...so many dolls, so little time.
It's really thawing here. In fact our garage had about four inches of standing water this morning...I spent three hours straight getting rid of that. Been doing a little spring cleaning too...I'm so achy from chopping the ice in our driveway...to drain the water in our garage...the spring cleaning is on hold!
Thanks for visiting and welcome to new blog buddies! Hope your week has started out good!
