A new doll

The beach bag swap inspired me to make a cloth Hitty. Not sure what possessed me, but here she is. I made her dress and have begun another dress and picked out fabrics for several other dresses too, lol. I guess I am hooked. Her box is one that my mom gave me that had some perfumes and lotions in, it has 2 drawers so she is in one and her clothes in the other. I painted the box brown.

Doll club swap

I belong to a doll club that gets together about every 8 weeks or so. We meet in Livermore California and I travel about 60 miles each way to go, but it is worth it. Some of the other members travel farther than that. We have been meeting since October 2000. At every meeting we have show and tell of the projects we have been working on since the last meeting. We have a potluck lunch and then some sort of class or project that we work on in the afternoon and then we do an exchange usually pin doll or doll sized. This time we made little beach bags to fit the Hitty size doll. This is the one I made. I made little flip flops, a towel, a novel, I also made a little bottle of sunscreen with shrink paper, then I added a bottle of wine and a parasol. This was a fun one even though I rarely like to make things this small.

Another swap doll

This is Wicked Wanda, she is from Mother Earth and Me pattern. I love this witch she is my favorite of all time. I made this for my swap partner Deb who lives in Kentucky.

New Doll

This is a doll I finished for a swap on one of my doll lists on yahoo groups. She is grunged up with a coffee and cinnamon mixture and so is her dress. She has pigtails and is holding a little pink strawberry. Her name is Sweet Sadie.

Another swap received

I received this wonderful cat in another swap on Primraggchatters at yahoo groups. It was an alphabet swap and your partner could make something using her initials or yours. Since my last name begins with "W" she made me a cat named Wicca.

Been swapping lately

Lately I have been involved with some cool swaps. This one is what I received from my partner in the red white and blue swap on crazyaboutpincushions at yahoo groups. My partner was Gerrie and this is what she sent me.

Covered tape measure

Anyway my pincushion group http://groups.yahoo.com/group/crazyaboutpincushions/
had a covered tape measure swap, I did not participate in the swap but decided to give it a try. I added my own touch to show my love for dolls and it was a lot of fun. The tutorial is here http://whipup.net/2006/03/09/customised-tape-measure/.


Been on a pincushion kick lately, not sure why except maybe because they are quick I get almost instant gratification and sometimes when I have been ill or in a slump I can get something quick done and get the energy for a new project. Was recently sick again and decided to make myself a cake. The bottom picture is the first one I made, like they say practice makes perfect. The top one is my most recent and I think it looks a lot better.
