Golly Swap

I participated in my first golly swap on internationalprimdollmakers on yahoo groups. The girl is the one I made, my first ever her name is Gillie and she went to Texas to live with Flora. The golly I rceived was from Beryl and I named him Willie he came from the UK to live with me. This was a fun one.

Newest addiction

I never thought I would like needle stitcheries, because I have tried counted cross stitch and I did not like it. But have been trying out some prim stitcheries. I finished one and have another halfway finished. This one is for my sister, I am making it a wall hanging.

New dolls

I made these two dolls using Sherry Goshon's free "Goddess of Love" pattern on her blog. I like the red one best, but think they both turned out well.

Spring time recipe

Thought I would share this recipe for a spring and summer dessert.

1 angel food cake torn into 3 inch pieces
2 boxes strawberry gelatin
1 pint fresh strawberries
2 large bananas
Cool whip

Place torn pieces of angel food cake in the bottom of a 9x13 glass pan, cut the strawberries and place on top of the cake, slice bananas and place on top of strawberries, make gelatin according to the oackage directions and pour over the cake and fruit. Chill until set. Cut into squares and top with cool whip. This is beautiful and refreshing dessert to serve at a barbecue or picnic. enjoy!!!!

3 Month old smiles

And of course the best doll of all my grandson.

Tiny sock monkies

I belong to Dude and Dolls Cloth Dollmaking in Northern California. We meet in Livemore every 8 weeks or so. I have not been to a meeting in about 1 year, and this last Saturday had the opportunity to attend. My little rabbit pull toy was made for our exchange. This little monkey 3 inches tall was our group project after lunch. We also made tuffets for our dolls.

Prim pindoll

So this is a free pattern by the birdcage. She was so easy and fun to do. Everything is painted but her bow and hair. She is about 3-1/2 inches.

Addicted to prims

I had to make a doll toy for my doll club meeting last Saturday. I got hooked on the prim staining and started to doodle bunnies, this is an original design 3 inches total. I used kitchen bouquet and water to age the fabric after he was stuffed, then I rubbed cinnamon into it to make it grubbier in spots. The wheels are fabric covered buttons. My daughter fell in love with him and was bummed that he was being given away.

Think Spring Annie

I made this doll for my sister's birthday. Her name is Think Spring by Sew Practical.

My babies

I belong to a group on yahoo and we made these dolls in a class. They are called Baby Annie and her Kittie a design by Cath Walker. My first go at prims, what do you think?
