Here she is! I just finished her. She is one of my patterns I designed back in the late 80's. And her name is "Prairie Sweetheart" She is made of muslin and calico prints trims and mini eyelet lace. Her hair is made out of embroidery floss. I wish I could keep her, but she is going out to Mary Mattis at Polka dot hill musings
I did make her a bit smaller than I use to. We were asked to make an old fashioned doll to swap with one other person. This was hosted by Cindy at Thimbleprims Studio.
"Lookin' old is the tag that I use with my antique looking items.
I am a Mother of 8, grandmother of almost 27 wonderful little people. Married to a wonderful man for 38 years. I am a published scrapbooker, have decorated wedding cakes, made wedding dresses, had a wedding business, taught baton twirling lessons to girls for almost 40 years, and love to decorate my home inexpensively. I have always been a 'make-due' sort of person. I love dishes, teacups, teapots, and have to be creating something everyday. I love to listen to beautiful uplifting music and watch Masterpiece Theatre and Jane Austen movies while I scrap, craft or sew. I have become addicted to quilting, and dream about quilt blocks now. I am still working on getting better at this art form. I believe that Creating things with your hands is a good outlet and keeps your mind alert, and has a way of helping one lose all the cares of the day and world, right in my own little studio. Therefore I will never become a digital scrapbooker. I think that those who do digital turn out some beautiful pieces of art and lovely layouts, but for me I need to cut and paste by hand!
