Long Time No Post!

In my defense, I have been busy.  My husband had a knee replacement early January and I needed to be chauffeur and all-around Slave while he was recouperating!  I did get some doll making in though.  Since He couldn't (and still can't) climb stairs, my studio became my sanctuary.  I have been going wild with my new "Recycle, Reuse, ReDiscover" dolls using vintage fabrics, laces, doilies, dresser scarves, etc.  Here is a group shot.  Missing are Rag Bag Gal, Victorian Lace and Frida as a child.  Shot includes some older ones, but they are all from the same pattern/design  They are L to R:  Very Chanel (notice her purse!), Market Dat, My Mommy Made This, Puppy Love, Style of her Own, Mod Chic, Hippie Chis, Alice Is that You? and Red Queen in Cowboy Boots.  Seated are In her Own Words and Miss America.  Very Chanel and the Red Queen are the same dress fabric - I painted the roses red! then had to make one with pink roses plus I had dyed the leg fabric dark grey and black stripes and didn't like how it looked with the red roses - needed black and red striped legs.

I still have at least one more I want to do.  I had dyed some doilies and want to use them similar to Victorian Lace.  Most of these are spoken for and will soon be headed to their new homes.  The rest will go in my Etsy shop.
