A little doll

I spent the beginning of the week working on making a little cloth doll. She isn't totally dressed yet and doesn't have hair but I decided to show her anyway. She is cute and will get a dress and apron as soon as I have time. Her companion doll is much larger and still in pieces because my play time ran out. She too is waiting in line to get finished, soon I hope.

Creative time

While looking at Facebook, I saw a post by Patti Maderas Collea that caught my attention. She was going to teach a make and take class at a show in California. Since I live on the other coast, I decided that I was going to try and do the project that morning. The project was a button with a face on it surrounded by petals. After gathering all of my supplies and doing the project, I realized that it took me lots longer than a few hours, more like two days but I had lots of fun. One of these days, I plan to make another pin. Thank you Patti for the idea.
