Playing with Dolls....

Good Morning Folks! thought I's share these three little dolls with you...

yes, they're nekked & hairless~

but won't be soon :)

I've been thinkin' about adding a new line of primitive doll patterns to my needlework pattern line...

I used to design & sell doll patterns way before I started designing samplers & such... you may even have one of my earlier patterns?
"Hester CAWdwell", a colonial crow Ladye "Bittersweet" a painted fabric doll "Little Patriot", a boy doll that wears a newspaper hat....

and many others... I was also thinkin' about re-offering them in my etsy shop....

what do you think? are there still any primitive doll makers/lovers out there? I collect them, make them and love them, so my answer doesn't count!!!

I'll be in the shop today, processing & packing orders... Peter is home today, working on my car ~ oh joy.

well, at least I'll be happy to have it on the road again.,..

and, while I'm on the subject, please let me thank Miss Felicia for allowing me to "borrow" her old car, which we've nicknamed 'Othello'

(thank you, my friend...xoxoxox to you)

Hoping you all have a beautiful & productive sun-shiny day!!

Blessings from the Farm...

I am definitely a doll-lover! Can't make 'em, but I can sure buy them up!
I'm sure anything you make would be a hit...
Have a happy day!

I say "go for it". There are plenty of prim doll makers out there. I would love it if you would offer doll patterns & I'm sure there are many others who would love it too.

Enjoy your day~Becky

Hi, Lori ~ I have one of your older patterns but would so love it if you started selling new patterns and please start with the sweet doll you posted a week or two ago. She was holding a cross stitched alphabet pillow. I so love her. I have your civil war sampler and santa pattern, too. Love that guy. Please say you will do it.

I would definitely be interested in your doll patterns so my answer is a very excited "yes"!!!
