Hoffman Challenge Doll Progress

I have been playing with the doll - she is dressed and sitting on the stool but I am not 100%.  I needed to name her though I did have a specific idea, just not a name but I have decided on "It's the Economy's Fault!"  The sign in the flowers says it all - I hope!

The rolled roses and the daisy are two of the flowers I will be demonstrating at Day With Dolls in August.  Actually, the lilac behind the sign is also another one.  These are all made with two layers of fabric fused with  fusible web.  the lilac flowers were cut out with my Sizzix.  The daisy and the roses are my design.

The sign is made from paper, embossed with wood-grain and colored with alcohol inks over 3 layers of chipboard so it is very sturdy.

Lovely flowers! Can't wait to see the finished doll. Any chance these flowers will be become an on-line class or tutorial for us readers overseas?
