PS My doll Dances with Butterflies came in third in the National Dance Week Challenge. Don't know who won yet, but I really loved the little girls at the bar. SOOOOO Cute! Will post a link to the wining dolls when I know it.

I am also saying good-bye to a doll I made as a test for my Lady Ragalia pattern. Her head was used in the face painting tutorial. Her apron is sheer metallic organza with fusible appliques cut from a coordinating fabric. The fusible didn't hold too good on the organza, so I also zig-zagged the edges with metallic thread. (This technique would also work great for One Kiss's overskirt!) I love the paisley print in her dress. The colors are so rich and of course there is lots of metallic gold in it! I also like her shoes. Got the idea for the two tone from another member of our doll club and found that exceptional trim at a quilt show. She is going to auctioned for a good cause--an American Cancer Society fundraiser. Will post more info when I have it.
