Surprise in Yesterday's Mail


Back in May, I was asked to do a doll for the November issue of Doll Crafter and Costuming. It was short notice but it just so happened I had a doll that would fit the bill. I was experimenting on a two part leg that could be used for two different poses - crosslegged or kneeling, so I worked up the pattern and dressed her as a Native American. I named her "Autumn Harvest." I mailed off the doll and the instructions and yesterday I received her back along with a copy of the magazine! This is the first time I have sent them the doll and they took wonderful pics and the instructions don't have the first letter of each line left off like Butterfly Ballet did. I also have a pic of Hyacinth from Arley's class in the Gallery section. WOW!!! Twice in one issue! Only thing, they have my email wrong. I'll have to send them a note.
