Just finished new doll..

Meet Belle.  I think she did turn out well.
and a plaque.  I love how these turned out.  Remember in a earlier post I mentioned how I cut through the sleeve of a doll that I had just finished while trimming the hair?  Well I finished her new dress and here she is!  Belle is her name.
I received a new pattern from Sweet Meadows Farm and made her up yesterday.  I love all of Maureen's patterns.  She's a country prairie primitive.  She looks loved and well worn.  I usually don't make real grungy dolls but I think she just turned out beautiful.  I'm naming her Laura after the child in  "Little House on the Prairie".  I loved that show.  Wish there was more like it.

I also finished up a plaque by Terrye French.  She's another one of my favorite dedsgner.  It's called "To Market". 

And last but not least is a pattern I've had for along time and thought I'd make it up.  It's a cute stuffed bear made in lavender.

Well that's all I made this week.  I want to try my hand on one of Maureen's black dolls and a chicken.
Till next time, have a great week-end.

Should Of Stayed.....

in bed.  Have you ever had one of those days?  I just finished one of my dolls and thought the hair needed to be a little shorter when all of a sudden I felt it and I heard it and then you know you cut something more than yarn.  I managed to cut through the sleeve of my dolls dress. Ohhh.. I was so mad at myself.  Now I'll have to make a new dress.  So I decided to go get some lunch and I should of saved my money, the food was awful.  Then to make matters worse, I went to pick up my lunch and Max decided he'd have some fun by chewing up my orthodontic insoles.  I guess I should of stayed in bed and forgot about crafting.
Anyway I do have two more dolls to share with you after I take their pictures later today.

Have a nice day~Charlene
