New Lady Ragalia


Since my computer went kaput a few weeks ago, I have discovered I didn't back up some of my patterns - namely Lady Ragalia and One Kiss so I am making new dolls, taking lots of pics and going to reissue the pattern on CD with more detailed directions and lots of pics.  Here is my new Ragalia made with fabrics (except her legs) left from this year's Hoffman challenge.  The prints are large, but I think they work.  I flocked the bottom half of her shoes and colored the white flocking with alcohol inks!  After the ink dryed, I strained the flocking through a tea strainer to make it fine and it came out awesome!!! who know????  Now just have to rewrite the pattern and alter the pics to fit ( took over 400 of them!)

Forever in our Hearts

Day we Adopted her
Monday we lost our little girl, Diamond.  She was the sweetest dog on the face of the earth and we loved her dearly.  We tried everything but the Vet said there is no cure for age. We will miss her as she was with us everyday except for maybe 10 since we got her in January,  2007 including vacations.  I saw that face on Petfinder and just had to have her.   She lived on my lap for the first 2 months and also the last two. They thought she was 9-10 when we adopted her.  We will miss her loyalty and her sweet loving prescence.
