More dolls and a teaser
I finished a couple more dolls for a sweet lady who has ordered them for Easter. She asked for a set in purple. They aren't quite as purple as they look in this photo!

And she had a really great idea to make a set of Easter eggs. I had a remarkably hard time deciding what colors and patterns these should be.

And really quick here are some wrinkled samples of things to come. After my sale last week I really didn't think I would make more dolls for awhile. But the pink haired girl was rather popular. I don't think I had sold that type before and now I want to make some more pinkies. Then I made the mistake of going into the one really good fabric store in town. It is a quilting shop, and if you sew, you know they have the yummiest fabrics around as a general rule. I couldn't resist buying more fabric. Won't these make the cutest girls? Some with black hair and some with pink?

But not until after Easter and the nesting doll phase I am in has passed!

And.. that fabric is soooo divine. Better make some new dolls with dresses or pretty pillows or something! I can't wait to see what!

I have a confession to make: It's widely known that I have ZERO sewing skills... yet I have this very weird obsession with fabric. I LOVE to look at it, and I will buy fabric but have absolutely NO idea what I am going to do with it. You should see the box of fabric I have been carting around with me... pathetic really. I LOVE that fabric!
I wish I hadn't just learned that little tid-bit about the quilting shops and darling fabric... now I am going to have to go find me a quilting shop to stalk! :>
