All the flowers and leaves are cashmere and I love how they are soft and will move around when you run your hand over their softness. The background green is boiled wool; not so soft but an excellent color.

I keep forgetting to mention that I have a pattern for the swaddled babies in my etsy shop, in case you are inspired to make your own.

I love how this baby’s face turned out- sort of wistful.

This entire piece is made of very soft fabric- either angora/wool blends or cashmere. I didn’t sew the leaves all the way down onto the body piece because I wanted that fluttery look and texture.

August Fish

I have been busy working on some other projects, namely making more room in my scraps drawer… I mean, making a quilt. But, I will be back to the dolls in a minute or so, starting with some August fish.

I am happy to admit that the garden has been a big distraction this year. We’ve had perfect weather, rain and sun. So I will leave a few photos here-
